GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- The family of a missing woman is pleading with the public for information about her disappearance. Wednesday, Grand Rapids Police released surveillance photos showing someone using Green's Bridge card.

Maxine Green, 62, is the sister of soul singer Al Green. She was first reported missing in mid August and the family is certain that Maxine is the victim of a crime. Her brother Bob, and niece Pam, are desperate for answers.

"I don't have a clue as to where she is, I want her back," says Pam. She says Maxine has some mental health issues but would never go this long without contacting someone. Green was last seen at her apartment, Shepherd's of Independence, on Morgan Street NW in Grand Rapids.

Wednesday, police released surveillance video of an unidentified woman using Maxine's Bridge card at the Big Top Market in Wyoming.

"That's the strange part about it: Somebody has her Bridge card. Someone is using it, they have the pin number, and that's scary. Like, how did you get that?" says Bob.

He and Maxine are the brother and sister of singer Al Green. Bob says the family moved to Grand Rapids in the 1950s. Al has since moved away, but a few family members remain.

"We're just asking the public for any help to bring her home. There's people out there who love her and miss her," says Pam.

The Green family is asking that people take a good look at the surveillance photos. If you recognize the woman in the picture, please, call police. It could be the piece of information they need, to find Maxine and solve the case.

If you have any information about the identity of the woman using the bridge card or Maxine Green's disappearance, you can remain anonymous and call Silent Observer at (616) 774-2345 or you Grand Rapids Police at (616) 456-3400.
