DOWNTOWN HONOLULU (KHNL) - The husband of a missing Waikiki woman made a passionate plea Tuesday morning.  He's asking for the public's help to find his wife.  Kimberly Jacobs has been missing since late last week.

At this point, the police aren't suspecting foul play.  Her husband Stan says this is very unlike her to disappear for days without telling him, and just wants his wife back home safe and sound.

Kimberly Jacobs is an outgoing wife, mother and grandmother.  The 47-year-old has been missing since Thursday.

"I don't know what happened," said Stan Jacobs, her husband. "It doesn't make sense. So I would like everybody's help."

Stan Jacobs says she was tired and needed some rest.  So, he went to a condo board meeting by himself.

"And I came back up at 8 o'clock and she wasn't there," he said. "And I thought she had gone some place close.  We have a lot of friends close by, so I wasn't concerned really."

She hasn't been seen since then.  Her purse, keys, and other belongings were left behind.  Stan Jacobs says she can't go very far, because she walks with a limp.

"People look at her foot, that's when they'd be able to see that it's bent in," he said.  "It's bent in this way, and she'd always wear sandals so it's not hidden."

Before she disappeared, she was dealing with back problems, a leak in her condo, and an unruly tenant who lives in her property on the mainland.

"It's not that any one of those was major, but all of it together was a lot to deal with," said Stan Jacobs.

Kimberly Jacobs has been missing for more than four days now.  With each passing day, her family and friends -- especially her two-year-old granddaughter -- miss her more and more.

"They all love you," said Stan Jacobs. "Everybody loves you. The baby's been asking for tutu all the time, She needs tutu. Everybody loves you and your smile lights the world for everybody around you."

Hoping a light helps her find her way home.

Kimberly Jacobs is about 5-feet, 4-inches tall, and weighs about 130 pounds.  If you have any information about her, you're encouraged to call Crimestoppers at 955-8300 or *CRIME on your cell phone.
