RICHMOND, Ky. (LEX 18) — Four months later and there is still no sign of 48-year-old Ella Jackson. She was last seen Sunday, Oct. 20 walking one of her dogs at Million Park near her Richmond home.

Richmond Police continue to search for the Madison County mother. Assistant Chief Rodney Richardson said there has been no activity on Jackson's bank cards, cell phone or social media. "I'm pretty confident in our investigators' ability that eventually we will reach the truth. Either we're going to find Mrs. Jackson or find out what happened to her," said Richardson.

Days after Jackson vanished, her oldest son, Phillip Hans, told LEX 18 it's unlike his mother to be gone even one day. He said her longest trips from home were to the grocery. He said on Sunday October 20th his mother shared a message with a photo of her walking one of her dogs at Million Park in Richmond not far from her home.

"Everything of hers is at the house, she wouldn't leave her kid behind, her car is there, her phone is there," he said. "All her stuff is there."

Jackson was last seen wearing khaki-colored cut shorts, black and white shoes, black sleeve Under Armor shirt and hoop earrings.
Hans went on to say Jackson would never abandon her five-year-old son or small dog who requires daily medicine.

Jackson's husband, Ex-EKU English Professor Glenn D. Jackson, told LEX 18 in October, his wife asked him and their young son to leave the house for an extended period of time the weekend she vanished. He believes she left on her own.
