— The Pitt County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in locating Sheilla Embezi Kavayi, 20, who was last seen Dec. 22.

Kayavi worked at the Walmart in Wilson, NC on the morning of Dec. 22. That afternoon, she sent her mother a text message saying she didn't know where she was, authorities said.

Kavayi moved to North Carolina from Kenya six months ago. She is not familiar with the area, and has no car or driver's license.

Police said it was unclear whether Kavayi was in danger.

She is black, about 5 feet 6 inches tall and 140 to 150 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Pitt County Sheriff's Office at 252-830-4141.
