Posted in Missing, Project New Era on October 23, 2011 by projectnewera

More than 100 law enforcement personnel and volunteers are searching for Jahessye Shockley in Glendale, Ariz.

According to Glendale Police, an Amber Alert was issued Tuesday evening when the 5-year-old girl went missing from her family’s home in an apartment complex near Glendale Road and 45th Avenue.

It was around 5 p.m. when Jahessye’s mother returned from running a quick errand and discovered the girl missing, said Officer Tracey Breeden, a Glendale Police Department spokesperson.

Jahessye had been at home with her three siblings, ages 6, 9 and 12.

Breeden said the mother said that when she got home, the front door was open, but Jahessye wasn’t inside and the siblings did not know where she was.

The mother searched around the apartment complex and called 911.

No one else lived at the home with the mother and her children.

Baltimore County Police are looking for a Baltimore City fire recruit who has been missing since Sunday.

Police say Rodney Goggins was last seen in the 4000-block of Rouen Road in Randallstown late Sunday morning. Relatives say Goggins then left to visit a friend who lives on Kenwood Avenue in Baltimore City. The friend told police that Goggins left her home late Sunday night, and has not been seen since.

Goggins is a black male, 20 years old, 5’6” tall, 150 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. He has a light mustache, and tattoos on his arms.

Rodney Goggins drives a black 2000 Buick with Maryland registration 8FRT68.

Baltimore City Fire spokesman Kevin Cartwright says Goggins is expected to graduate from the city fire academy in September.

Baltimore County Police are asking anyone who may have seen Goggins or his vehicle to call the Baltimore County Police Department at 410-887-1340 or 410-307-2020.


18 Year Old Rosemary Newman, Pregnant & Strangled by Child’s Father

Posted in Pregnant, Project New Era on April 29, 2011 by projectnewera

Twenty-year-old Deandre Minkins and his girlfriend 19-year-old Shante Thomas have been charged with first-degree murder and intentional homicide of an unborn child. Good, but who knows how extensively they’ll be punished.

A brief investigation revealed that Minkins and Thomas extensively planned and plotted the murder of Rosemary Newman over a span of several weeks. Rosemary was nine months pregnant, and Deandre Minkins was the father of her unborn child, although the two weren’t romantically involved. Shante and Deandre must have come to a mutual understanding that this child must not be born, probably because the deadbeat didn’t want to pay child support, or maybe Shante was blinded with jealousy over having to share her new man with a young child and ex girlfriend. At any rate, they plotted and on the night of the murder, their plans came to fruition.

Baltimore City Police confirm a body found in the Susquehanna River near the Conowingo Dam is missing North Carolina student Phylicia Barnes. Her father and brother first told WJZ about the positive identity Thursday afternoon.

Mike Hellgren reports the bodies of a man and a woman were found Wednesday.

The autopsies began at 10 a.m. Thursday at the medical examiner’s office. Medical examiners compared the missing North Carolina teen’s dental records with one of two bodies found on the Susquehanna River.

The bodies were in bad shape, so bad police couldn’t tell what race they were. But they knew one was a man and another was a woman.

Missing: Lauryn Dickens

Posted in Missing on September 21, 2010 by projectnewera

Memphis police said the father of 10-month old Lauryn Dickens may know where she is. The baby has been missing since September 7th. Investigators issued a “City Watch Alert” Friday, September 17 for 10-month-old Lauryn Dickens, who was last seen wearing a brown onesie with a pink flower and pink dots.

Police are questioning family members, friends, and neighbors for clues about where the baby could be.

It’s been two weeks since Lauryn Dickens has been missing. But her mother, Shakara Dickens, waited 10 days to report her daughter missing, after she gave her baby to a complete stranger. Police said their number one concern is the safety of that baby and time may be running out.

“Makes me want to cry looking at her going missing like that,” said a neighbor.

The search started at the Raleigh Apartment complex. Amber Alerts are only issued when a child is abducted and is in imminent danger. So far there’s no evidence that could lead police to believe the child is in harms way. But Eyewitness News spoke with the Commission on Missing and Exploited Children (COMEC) and said the child could be in danger without the police even knowing it.

Neighbors are still angry and they want to know why her mother took so long to report her baby missing.

“She’s a cute baby, she doesn’t need to be missing, she needs to be found,” neighbor Kathey Smith said.

Every day and every hour counts as police try to figure out where the baby girl may be. Lauryn’s mother wanted the child’s father to help care for her, but he’s in jail. Police said that’s when the white female came to the mother’s house and gave the baby away, no questions asked, thinking it was someone the father knew.

Police said the baby girl may be with a Caucasian woman in her mid-40’s with shoulder-length gray hair. She was wearing glasses, a white blouse, khaki pants and sandals.

If you have any information about where they could be call Crime Stoppers at (901) 528-CASH.
