GARDEN CITY, GA (WTOC) - Garden City police need your help in finding a missing woman.

Twenty-two-year-old Jacquelyn Williams walked out of her grandmother's house on Bates Avenue in Savannah last Tuesday, she hasn't been seen since.

Her family tells WTOC that while Williams may be 22-years-old she has the mindset of an 8-year-old. They say with her mindset they are worried for her safety. "She'll follow anyone. She's easily led," said Williams's Grandmother Ruth Williams.

Williams said on Tuesday her granddaughter was at the house when they got into an argument. She says Jacquelyn couldn't wake her brother up and got frustrated and left the home. Williams says at first they weren't worried because Jacquelyn has run off before, but when she never came back they started to panic. On Saturday they called police and filed a missing person's report.

Garden City police started contacting everyone that was close to Jacquelyn including her boyfriend. "I feel like he's hiding her. I really believe that," said Williams. While Williams feels that way, police do not. They say they spoke with him and that he had not seen or heard from her since Valentine's Day.

Her family says they want her to know they just want her to come home. If you know where Jacquelyn Williams is you're asked to call police.
