COLUMBUS, Ga. — A Columbus family is asking for the community’s help to find missing 14-year-old Mercedes Nwogbo. The police report spells her name ending with a “z”, but all documentation News 3 received from the family spells her name Mercedes. Her mother, Lolesha Nwogbo, said the eighth grader never came home from school Friday afternoon.
She says Mercedes goes to AIM Middle School and usually takes the city bus. Ms. Nwogbo says her daughter does not have a cell phone, making it harder to find her.
Ms. Nwogbo spent the day on Saturday passing out flyers with a picture and description of her missing daughter. Mercedes is 5’7″ with brown eyes and black, medium length hair.
“We’ve been all around town and to no avail. She’s nowhere to be found,” Ms. Nwgobo says.
She asks anyone with information to call (706) 662-8810 or (706) 761-4341.
