DALE CO., AL, (WSFA) - Family members are desperate for answers and crying out for help in the search for a missing Dale County woman.

Virginia Sellers, who also goes by Ginger, was last seen on Nov. 12.

"I just want her to please call if she can hear this or sees it in anyway," said Seller's sister Rebecca Wallace.

Wallace spoke with her sister the afternoon of Nov. 12 and believes she went missing that night. Wallace said Sellers was planning to leave her boyfriend, who she was living with, to escape domestic abuse. Sellers reportedly promised her sister she would keep in touch.

Wallace says it is unlike her sister to disappear and not call her.

"It's not like her, even a day or two, and especially with her knowing I was coming to move her. She was waiting on that, she done [sic] took a lot of her belongings out of storage that was there. They were laying there, they were just piled up outside," Wallace said.

Sellers reportedly walked to H&W Convenience store to charge her phone the day she was last seen. Police say she was last seen walking on Highway 105. She was wearing a blue walking outfit and carrying a black purse.

Sellers is a mother of two and grandmother of three. She also suffers from physical and mental illnesses.

"We have a lot of different things we're looking into right now. I'm limited to what I can say and limited to what I will say, but we are in the process of trying to find out more information," said Dale County Sheriff Wally Olson.

The Dale County Sheriff's Office and the family are asking anyone with information on the whereabouts of Virgina Sellers to call 774-2335.
