RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Richmond police confirm they are expanding the search for 21-year-old Keeshae Jacobs.

Investigators say Chimborazo Park was the last area Jacobs was seen. Wednesday, search crews scoured the area looking for clues as her family went door-to-door, handing fliers to anyone who would take them.

Dana Schrad, Executive Director of the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police, said Keeshae's pictures and any last known information is now being shared with jurisdictions across Virginia.

"That's the way that state police can get that information out to all law enforcement agencies," said Schrad. "They can spread it through their Facebook pages...their Twitter accounts."

Investigators say there have been possible sightings in Nottoway, Dinwiddie, and Victoria, but those tips haven't led to Jacobs.

"We'll take any kind of lead because you never know when it's the right one," said Schrad.

"Right now, we have no reason to believe that there is foul play. We do have a concern about this young lady's whereabouts and her safety. Law enforcement really wants the help of the public in case they see her. If you see something, say something," Schrad said.

If you have any information about this case, call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.
