Authorities Continue Search for Jennifer Wilkerson

Still no sign of a Lubbock woman who disappeared last week.

It's been almost five days since anyone has seen or heard from the 26 year-old. Over the weekend, friends and family are still searching for answers to where she is.

"I'll be quitting very soon," said Jennifer Wilkerson on April 14th when NewsChannel 11 interviewed her about the proposed sin tax hike by Governor Perry.

Nearly three months later, she disappeared.

"This is not like her. It's not like her to diappear or be out of contact with her family or friends which she loved like her family," says Maxie Brooks III, Jennifer's friend.

Maxie Brooks is more than Jennifer's co-worker at Nothin' But Smokes, he's a friend who's known her for six years.

"I know her to be a happy, caring, loving young woman that's hard working and is always there for her friends when they need her," says Brooks.

He says it's been a long weekend not knowing where Jennifer is.

"I'm used to being on the other side of the counter seeing her smiling, happy face just coming into here," he says.

The day of her disappearance, Brooks says that she was last seen after leaving work. All he knows is that she made it home.

"The fact that both sets of her keys for her house and her car were in the house locked up tight," says Brooks.

Within one hour, he says she was gone. Meanwhile, Brooks finds it hard not to think about her.

"It's waiting for me right outside the door. We miss her and love her. It hurts," he says.

The Lubbock County Sheriff's Department is asking for you help locating Jennifer Wilkerson. The 26 year-old stands about 5' 5" tall with a small build, brown hair, and blue eyes. She also has several tattoos. She was last seen on Tuesday. Investigators do not suspect foul play.

If you have any information on Jennifer Lynn Wilkerson's whereabouts, you're encouraged to call the Sheriff's Office at (806) 775-1601.
