GOLDSBORO, N.C. (WNCN) — A Goldsboro woman who had not had any contact with her family since January was located just a day after Goldsboro police sent a press release asking for information on her whereabouts.
Lakeyisha Vonette Jones, 38, was last seen on Jan. 5, Goldsboro Police said in a news release Monday.
Jones was last seen with a man named Laron Holloman leaving for New York, but her belongings were left at her Lincoln Homes apartment, police said.
