COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  Relatives of Corrine McGinn-Goyette gathered at the Open Door Community House on 2nd Avenue in Columbus Monday where the 51-year-old has been living for the past several months, hoping to find a clue to her whereabouts.

"I'm here to find out the truth about my sister, whether she's still in the area, whether she's safe, whether she needs help," said her sister, Gladys Brierley.

Officials in the Muscogee County Sheriff's Office say McGinn was last seen leaving the Country Inn suites off Williams Road where she worked as a housekeeper . On June 16th, they say she turned in her uniform and said she was going to Florida but no one's seen or heard from her since.

Before she disappeared, family members say McGinn mentioned something about getting her brakes fixed on her car.

"We believe that she may be endangered. She may have inadvertently gotten mixed up with someone. We just don't know," added her sister.

Even more startling to her family members is the fact that McGinn left behind all of her belongings.

"We have notified all law enforcement agencies, locally and nationally through a 'BOLO' that Ms. McGinn is someone we're looking for. At this time, we don't have any evidence of foul play but what we're asking citizens and law enforcement professionals to do, if they come in contact with Ms. McGinn to ask her to call her family because they're very concerned about her whereabouts," said Major Randy Robertson of the Muscogee County Sheriff's Office.

"I'm very concerned that something might have happened to her or if she's hurt in any way. I just want to find out what's going on. It's really a struggle for my family right now," McGinn's son, Sean, added. Sean is one of Corrine's four children.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Muscogee County Sheriff's Office at 706-653-4225.
