LAWRENCE, Mich. (WZZM) -- Deputies are asking for assistance in their search for a woman who walked away from an adult foster care home in Van Buren County.
Chelsea Richards, 29, went on an approved walk around 5 p.m. Sunday from the home in the 56000 block of 48th Avenue in Lawrence, but did not return.
Investigators say Richards has a history of mental issues and must take medication on a daily basis. She has ties to the Kalamazoo area.
