Clark Atlanta student missing

(WXTX) - An Atlanta area university student has disappeared and her family and friends are asking for her safe return home.

Jones Rhodes left her family's home early Monday morning and was supposed to be heading to her graduation from Clark Atlanta University.
Her family became worried when she never walked across the stage and they learned she didn't check in.

A University spokesperson says Rhodes' name was not on the official list for commencement and they have no record of her paying fees for a cap and gown.

"It's taken a lot just to stand up here, so I just want to say AJ just please come home. That's all I can do you all," says Nicole Johnson Jones' mother.

Family friend Kurtis Toliver says "I'm hoping that if someone knows where she is, that they make her aware that her parents just want to see her home safely."

Back in November of 2012, Rhodes was the victim of an armed robbery on campus.

Her family remembers that experience and says now they just want to know she's safe.

Family members say Jones-Rhodes was last seen driving a black Hyundai Sonata.
