Search for Wilkerson Continues

New information on Tuesday night about a Lubbock woman who has been missing for one week.

One week ago Tuesday, 26 year-old Jennifer Lynn Wilkerson disappeared. On Tuesday, the Lubbock County Sheriff's Department released new information on their search, as well as a plea to the public for help.

In a press conference, the Sheriff's Department explained the chain of events following Jennifer's disappearance and what steps their search has taken so far.

"When you have prostitutes found dead in the county, and then you have a missing girl like Joanna Rogers, and then this other missing person. We certainly want to look at all possibilities. In this particular case, we find no ties to any of the previous deaths we've had in the county," said Sheriff David Gutierrez.

According to the Sheriff's Department, Jennifer Wilkerson left her boyfriend's house to come home and change for work, but when she didn't show up, the search began. To this day, her black car sits in the driveway, the house was locked, and her keys were inside, but Jennifer and her purse were gone.

"She did live with two other roommates, hence the concern. Her normal mode, if she was going to leave, was to tell someone if she was leaving and that was not the case. Therefore, the roommates contacted the family and the family contacted us," said Sheriff Gutierrez.

The Sheriff's Department says there were no signs of a struggle at the residence. They say her family and friends have been cooperative, but they need more from the public.

"Our concern at this time is that we would like for the public to assist us with information regarding Jennifer Wilkerson," said Gutierrez.

The Sheriff's Department has already searched the area by foot and with aerials, but they have few other leads to follow.

NewsChannel 11 interviewed Jennifer about three months ago on another story. Jennifer is described as about 5' 5", 110 pounds, brownish red hair, blue eyes, and multiple tattoos.

If you have any information that could assist in this search, please call the Sheriff's Department at (806) 775-1601.

Again, at this time, there is no tie between Wilkerson and missing Lubbock teen Joanna Rogers. Rogers has been missing since May 4th.
