NOW: Jackson State student from Milwaukee reported missing in Mississippi

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- We're learning new details about a missing Milwaukee woman. Twenty-one-year-old Kamilah Fipps was last seen Tuesday, April 19 on the campus of Jackson State University in Mississippi.

"That is my baby and she needs to come home, they need to find my baby," said Vicky Fipps, Kamilah's mother. 

Fipps is a biology student at the university. She has plans to become a veterinarian. 

"This is a young lady who is Milwaukee's own, who was going to come back and offer her knowledge and skills, her disposition, her talents to this community," Dr. Shandowlyn Hendricks-Williams said. She is Kamilah's aunt.

Fipps says she last heard her daughter's voice Monday, April 18. 

Worry started to kick in when Kamilah didn't call her mother on Wednesday, April 20 for her birthday.

"We talk every day, I make it a business to call her and talk to her every day," Fipps said.

Jackson State University police say records show Fipps or someone else purchased a ticket on Wednesday to New York. Fipps says this raises another red flag.

"If her card is being used, how do I know that's her using the card? How do I know somebody else doesn’t have her and being coerced to do whatever," Fipps said.

Fipps is continuing to cry out for help until Kamilah comes home unharmed.

"If you see anything, if you know anything, just reach out to authorities, let them know, nothing is too small," Fipps said. 

Family members told police Fipps has a medical condition that could affect her judgement, her mom disputed that information.

Police say they don't believe foul play is involved.
