Update

(Lilburn, Georgia)  The Gwinnett County Police Department is seeking the public’s help in locating another missing elderly woman tied to a wanted caretaker from Gwinnett County

According to a press release, earlier this month, a South Precinct officer spoke with the daughter of Linda Williams.  The daughter said that she hasn’t spoken with her mother since sometime in December 2019 and had not physically seen her since October 2019. When the daughter questioned the caretaker, Kishia Mitchell (age 50), she was told that Linda Williams was transferred to Adult Protective Services (APS).  APS has no record of Ms. Williams in their database.

Mitchell has ties to another active missing person case involving Linda Kimble, 59. Kimble has not yet been found.

Both women are listed as missing on Georgia Crime Information Center (GCIC).  It is imperative that Linda Williams and Linda Kimble are located so we can make sure their physical and medical needs are being met.

Kishia Mitchell had previously been charged with two counts of Exploitation of a Disabled or Elder Person (OCGA 16-5-102) and two counts of Unlicensed Personal Care Home (OCGA 31-7-12.1).  She also has an active warrant for Probation Violation.

If anyone has any information to share in these cases they are asked to contact GCPD detectives at 770-513-5300. To remain anonymous, tipsters should contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or visit www.stopcrimeATL.com.  Crime Stoppers tipsters can receive a cash reward for information leading to an arrest and indictment in this case.  Case Numbers:  20-013604 (Williams) & 19-091913 (Kimble)

Update:

Linda Kimble is still missing.

The day after the original Media Release was published on October 11, officers assigned to the South Precinct were dispatched to another call involving Kishia Mitchell.  A 26-year old man walked into the Wells Fargo bank on Rockbridge Road in unincorporated Stone Mountain stating that he had not seen his care-taker Kishia Mitchell for the past two days nor had he eaten.

Officers responded to the Wells Fargo and then re-located back to his home at 2966 Deshong Drive in unincorporated Stone Mountain.  Officers located nine adults with varying levels of special needs.  There was no care-taker present, and officers learned that the residents had not eaten or had access to medications in several days.

None of the residents were Linda Kimble.

Of the nine residents, eight were relocated using Temporary Emergency Relocation Funds (TERF).  The ninth resident was offered the choice to relocate, but he declined.

As a result of this new investigation, Kishia Mitchell has been charged with several new crimes to include two counts of Exploitation of a Disabled or Elder Person (OCGA 16-5-102) and two counts of Unlicensed Personal Care Home (OCGA 31-7-12.1).

At this time, detectives are still seeking the whereabouts of both Linda Kimble and Kishia Mitchell.  It is imperative that Linda is located so we can make sure her physical and medical needs are being met.

We encourage tipsters to contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.
