Jena was last seen at her Florence, KY home on December 19, 2013. Her family has not seen or heard from her since. We tracked her through her iPhone to Las Vegas and to Los Angeles. We believe she has stopped using that phone because it has not been turned on in several days. We believe she is back in Las Vegas because her dog was found there, tied to a fence outside the Diamond Inn. Jena loved that dog and it’s hard to believe she’d leave her behind. She left home in her 2006 powder blue Volkswagen Beetle Kentucky License plate 316-MYB with a promise to return for a doctor’s appointment on December 26. She did not return. Jena has two tattoos: a black rag doll over her left clavicle and a large black and red tattoo on her right torso.
Please call Las Vegas police with information.

“My gut was telling me, based on the motel she was in, something wasn’t right,” said Melanie Downard, the Las Vegas woman who found Jena Chisholm’s dog. She was able to connect with the missing woman’s family after conducting an online search. She says the family has arranged for the dog to be flown back to Kentucky on Friday.
“We do not think she would leave her dog behind willingly,” said McArtor, who described Jena Chisholm as an animal lover. She said the abandoned dog coupled with the fact that Jena Chisholm had recently began undergoing evaluations for a mental illness has the family concerned for her safety.

Jena Chisholm appeared disheveled and homeless, but wasn’t detained by security officers who questioned her and a man she was with at about 10 p.m. Thursday at the Quad casino, Tim Chisholm told The Associated Press.
“I know she’s alive and walking around Las Vegas, at least last night,” Tim Chisholm said from his home near Florence, Ky. “My initial concern was that she was hurt, abducted or doing drugs.”

Many have asked how Jena is doing now. She stayed the night with her family at a hotel in Vegas and hopefully will be heading home to Kentucky today. Her mom says she wanted to come home but couldn’t figure out how. She lost her car keys, phone and dog. Had no money left and just kept dealing with it. It didn’t occur to her to borrow a phone. She had her mom’s credit card but didn’t want to spend the money. She slept in parking garages. She was helped every day by kind people In Las Vegas who gave her food. Other kind people searched for her and shared her picture. We are forever grateful and humbled by this kindness. We need to continue to help all families searching for missing members, when there’s no contact we can’t be certain the missing just doesn’t want to be found.
