GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Tuesday marks one week since 55-year old Kimberly Haymon went missing in Grand Rapids.
Police say she was last seen getting off a bus at Fulton and Division. Her purse was found near the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum, and there were footprints in the snow leading towards the Grand River.
Crews searched the river, but found no signs of Haymon.
FOX 17 talked to Kimberly Haymon's sister, Pamela Robinson. The last week has been agonizing for her and her family. She is coping by relying on her faith, family and support from the community and investigators.
"The detectives were right on it as soon as this happened," Robinson said. "As soon as someone called and said they found my sister's purse, they were right there looking. It's just been wonderful: the people, the support."
Pamela still has hope her sister is alive, but she is fearful the truth may be lurking in the Grand River. "We have not given up hope that she is with us, even though the odds look like she may be in the river."
Pamela has a message for her sister if she can see this story: "Kim, we would love to have you back we miss you dearly."
