United Communities Against Crime holding ‘Candlelight Prayer’ for missing 21-year-old Richmond woman


RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The United Communities Against Crime (ACAC) is holding a “Candlelight Prayer” Saturday, October 15 for the 21-year-old Richmond woman who has been missing for over three weeks.

Keeshae Jacobs was last seen Chimborazo Park on Monday, September 26.

According to her mother Toni Jacobs, her daughter texted her that Monday and told her she would be home on Tuesday. However, Toni says her daughter never came home and when she called her phone, it went straight to voicemail.

Keeshae has not been heard from since and there has not been any activity on her cell phone or bank account. Toni is hoping anyone with information will come forward.

“It doesn’t matter how small or insignificant you think it is. Any little piece will help,” Jacobs said.

Jacobs is described as a black female, 5’3” tall, weighing approximately 100 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing black basketball shorts, pink and black Nike basketball shoes and a pink scarf. She has tattoos on her right foot, right leg and right hand of a leaf, paws and a flower, respectively.

“My daughter is my world, that’s my life, my baby,” Jacobs said. “Just please help me bring my baby home, just please help me bring my baby home.”

The candlelight prayer is being held at the Manchester Courthouse on Hull Street in Richmond this Saturday starting at 5 p.m.

UCAC asks those who are attending to bring candles and white and purple balloons.
