A Gridley family is asking for help to find their family member, who they have not seen nor heard from in nearly three weeks.

40-year-old Elbert Jennings, also known as "Willy," was last seen at the Oroville Hospital on Tuesday, December 9. According to authorities, Jennings was involved in a fight behind the cannery on Mitchell Avenue in Oroville and subsequently taken to the Oroville Hospital. The family has not seen nor heard from him upon his release.

Jennings has been recently homeless, but the family tells Action News Now that a lack of communication is not normal. If you have any information, you're asked to call his mother Debbie at (530) 693 8774 or cousin Christina at (530) 282-8604.
