Leah Is Missing

Leah Jackson, 15, has been missing since July 28. Her mother is looking for help finding her.
Shari Muhammad, Leah’s mom, described her daughter (pictured) as 5 feet tall, 105 pounds, with light brown skin and pink highlights in her hair. She was last seen wearing a multi-colored tank-top and dark blue “skinny jeans.” She often goes by “Leah Carmela,” her mom said.
Muhammad said someone picked Leah up from her house in the Annex neighborhood late on Saturday, July 28. She hasn’t seen her since. Muhammad said she suspects she was picked up by a man in his 20s named “Johnny.”
Since her disappearance, Leah’s Facebook account has been deleted, Muhammad said. “There’s no trace of her. We can’t find her anywhere. We’ve got a cold trail. She would never just leave and not contact me at all.”
Muhammad said she has filed a report with the police and put up flyers around town.
“It takes every bit of your soul to just hold yourself together,” she said. “Inside it’s eating me apart not knowing.”
Anyone with information about Leah’s whereabouts can contact Muhammad at (203) 435-8486.

What have the police said @ this?? Have they been proactive in investigating her disappearance??
Why is this not all over the news stations and on the front page of the register? She is still a child! Prayers to the family…
The police aren’treally helping much. I miss mmylittle ssisterand i want her to come home. When tthefirst police guy came to our house he just shrugged it off as if this was something normal! :mad:
Since her disappearance, Leah’s Facebook account has been deleted,
Do they know who “Johnny” is? The article does not make it clear if his full name is unknown or being withheld because he is not a suspect of a crime. Nothing on Facebook is unrecoverable. I believe a subpoena is needed at this point to get her account info. I have no doubt the identity of “Johnny” would be quickly discovered if the police could recover this info.
I agree with Edward_H. The family and/or police should immediately contact Facebook for information about where her account was last accessed from and any of the information that was on it at the time it was deleted. If they don’t know the last name of “Johnny” then maybe they could identify him that way. There are potential leads here.
