Sister says Flint teen is still missing, last seen Dec. 31

FLINT (WJRT) -

(02/12/14) - The sister of a 19-year-old Flint woman continues her search for her.

Jennifer White says the teen, Jina Collins, hasn't been seen since New Year's Eve - Dec. 31.

White says her sister was last in the area of Pettibone Avenue and Fenton Road, between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m., wearing jeans, boots and a gray hooded sweatshirt.

"Two weeks had went by," White says. "Nobody knew how to get a hold of family so they had went on to Jina's Facebook and found that I was Jina's sister."

White says that message, on Facebook, is how she found out about her sister's disappearance. She immediately reported it to police.

White says it's not unusual for Collins to not contact her, even for extended amounts of time, but it's not common for Collins to completely disappear.

"Somebody always does hear from Jina," she says. "People that see Jina on a daily basis have not seen Jina or heard from her at all."

White has been caring for her nephew, Collins' 17-month-old son, and is more concerned as each day goes by.

White says she doesn't have a working cell phone or a car.

"We've shared her picture on Facebook. We've actually opened a page on Facebook "Bring Jina Home" to try to get tips," White said. "Look at her picture and remember the face. As you're going to the store or wherever, please just keep your eye out for her."

Please call Flint Police, at 810-237-6801, or Crime Stoppers, at 1-800-SPEAK-UP, if you have any information about Collins.
