RICHMOND, Ky. (LEX 18) — One month later, 48-year-old Ella Jackson is still missing from her Richmond home. She was last seen Sunday, Oct. 20.

Jackson, who is also known by her previous married name Ella Hans, has shoulder length black hair. She is 5'8 and weighs 150 pounds.

Her oldest son, Phillip Hans, told us just days after her disappearance that 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, EKU English Professor Glenn D. Jackson, told LEX 18 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.

Nine days after Jackson disappeared Richmond Police searched in and around her Westwood Drive home. Investigators say they continue to work behind-the-scenes on the case.

Call Richmond Police if you have any information on Jackson's whereabouts.
