KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities in Kalamazoo are asking for the public’s help to locate a missing woman.

Yolanda Nicole Williams, 26, was last seen the night of Nov. 4, according to a release from the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety.

Her family told police she is bipolar and also suffers from schizophrenia, although she hasn’t been taking her medications.

Family members believe there’s a possibility of exploitation due to prior incidents.

Williams reportedly has a cell phone, but it can only be used in WiFi areas.

Williams is about 5-foot 9-inches tall and weighs 140 pounds. She has brown eyes, shoulder length black hair with a possible weave, and may be wearing a red and black checkered coat.

Anyone with information is asked to call KDPS at 269.337.8994 or Silent Observer at 269.343.2100.
