    MI - Maxine Green, 62, Grand Rapids, 23 August 2013

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The sister of famed soul singer Al Green is missing in Grand Rapids, according to police.

    Maxine Green was reported missing on August 23rd when she did not return home. The last reported sighting of her was on September 6th at “B and B Party Shoppes” on Leonard Street NW.

    Green’s daughter, Lasha Green, spent Monday morning canvassing Leonard Street near US 131 in Grand Rapids. She desperately looked for answers in the disapperance of her 61-year-old mother.

    “Have you seen this lady… Maxine?” Green asked a man on the street.

    She told FOX 17, “Time is not on our hands in situations like this. My mother is… she was diagnosed like 26 years ago of being a paranoid schizophrenia and plus she`s a alcoholic.”

    Grand Rapids police told FOX 17 a guardian reported Green missing on August 23rd. She lives at Shepherds of Independence near Leonard and Morgan on the northwest side. However, she hasn’t been home since. A manager at the supervised housing facility said Shepherds contacted the The Servants Center, which handles Green`s disability checks.

    “[The Servant Center] issue her funds once a week for her to maintain and live off, and she haven`t picked up any funds during the month of september. Period,” green said.

    One month later, her family is upset that no one contacted them about Green’s disappearance. Maxine Green’s son found out she was missing after contacting her supervised home.

    Lasha Green said anyone who’s met Green likely learned that her brother is soul singer Al Green. Her family said she lets everyone know this, and so they hope someone seeing her picture posted around town will know where she is now.

    “She catch the bus right down the street a lot and go downtown and hang out and occasionally stop at family member’s houses, but no one in the family has heard from her or seen her,” Green said.

    Lasha Green said this is the second blow for the family this year. The Green family is related to Latrice Maze. She disappeared earlier this year. Grand Rapids police believe the 26-year-old mother of five was murdered by her boyfriend. Maze’s body has not been found.

    Anyone with information regarding Green’s whereabouts is asked to call Grand Rapids police or Silent Observer at 616-774-2345.

    I hope they charge that woman with fraud for using the card. Maybe that will sharpen her memory about where she got it.

    Honestly, though, there is so much buying, selling and trading of those cards, it is not a sure thing that anyone who used the card had anything to do with Ms. Green going missing.

    Very sad.

    It has been one year since Maxine Green went missing...

    Grand Rapids Police continue to actively investigate the case, according to Lt. Patrick Merrill. Occasionally tips come in of sightings in Detroit or Muskegon, but nothing has panned out.

    “There’s nothing, just nothing,” Merrill said.
