Original story: 

The Catoosa County Sheriff's Office and other law enforcement agencies are searching for a missing Ringgold, Georgia, woman, according to a news release.

The family of Kelly Ann McInnes, 28, reported to the CCSO that she packed her vehicle, a white 2019 Hyundai Tucson with Florida tag 28EET, with most of her belongings and left her residence located at 86 Brownwood Lane in Ringgold, Georgia on Monday. McInnes suffers from mental health issues and has not been taking her medication, the release states.

Family members say she may be headed to South Carolina or Florida.

On Wednesday, CCSO officials were notified that the Tucson was observed by a camera license plate reader at the intersection of Northside Parkway and Mount Paran Road in Atlanta, Georgia, but the vehicle was gone before local law enforcement arrived at the area. 

The CCSO was then notified that McInnes had rented a hotel room in Jasper, Georgia on Wednesday, but by the time local law enforcement arrived, hotel staff said McInnes was alone when she checked into a room but had already checked out.

The Tucson was again seen by a camera license plate reader at 11:30 p.m. Thursday near Church Street and Margaret Avenue in Marietta, Georgia, but the vehicle was gone by the time local law enforcement arrived at the scene.

On Friday, McInnes' debit card was used at a gas station in Savannah, Georgia, but local law enforcement was unable to locate her.

There is concern about McInnes' mental welfare, even though she is a legal adult and is legally able to leave her residence. There is no evidence to suggest she is with anyone else or being held or manipulated against her will, the release states.

If you have any information about McInnes should contact the Catoosa County Sheriff's Office at (706) 935-2424 or (706) 935-2323, or your local law enforcement agency.
