VAN BUREN COUNTY, Mich — The Van Buren County Sheriff’s Department is helping search for a woman who went on an approved walk from her adult foster care home, but never returned.

Chelsea Richards, 29, is described as 5’5″ tall, about 180 pounds, with brownish blonde hair that has a red streak. Richards left around 5 p.m. Sunday from the home, in the 56000 block of 48th Avenue Lawrence, in Arlington Township.

Richards has a history of mental issues and is required to take medication on a daily basis.

Deputies tell us, she may have accepted a ride from passing motorists, but that’s not known at this time. She does have ties to the Kalamazoo area.

Richards was last seen wearing black pants, black shoes and a black jacket. If you know anything, call the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Department at 269-657-2006.
