Family and friends come together at candlelight vigil for missing Richmond woman

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A candlelight vigil was held Saturday night for a 21-year-old woman who has been missing for over two weeks.

Keeshae Jacobs has been missing for more than two weeks and was last seen on September 26 at Chimborazo Park.

The vigil was held at the Henry and Harold Marsh Court House in Richmond’s Manchester neighborhood.

“I just want to thank everybody out her for coming out here for my baby,” Toni Jacobs, Keeshae’s mother, said at the vigil.

The United Communities against crime organization organized the prayer vigil, to bring people together in solidarity for Keeshae’s safe return.

“It doesn’t go a day that I don’t talk to her, maybe two or three times a day,” Toni said. “I talk to my daughter, even when she’s mad at me. This is not her, for it to go this long without reaching out to me, her dad, her brothers. We just want her to come home.”

Along with prayers, money is also being raised to help Jacobs family while they continue searching.

The family encourages the public to contact police immediately if you have seen her.
