Police flood streets in search of missing 5-year-old girl
An Amber Alert has been issued for 5-year-old Jahessye Shockley who went missing outside her Glendale home late Tuesday night. She is thought to have wandered out her house on N. 45th Avenue between 4 and 4:30 while under the supervision of her 13-year-old sister.
Jahessye’s mother said that she ran a quick errand but when she returned little Jahessye was gone. After a thorough search of her complex, she immediately called the police.
Jahessye is an African American girl, about 3’5”, 55 pounds, has black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen in a white t-shirt, blue jeans, pink sandals and her hair styled in a ponytail.
Police are in search of a woman with a dark-colored 1998 to 2000 Chevrolet, suspected to have some connection to the girl’s disappearance. The woman was spotted putting a similar described girl in her car.
The woman is described as an African American woman between the ages of 25 and 30, 5-foot-8 and 120 pounds. She was last seen driving down Glendale Avenue with her hair in a bun.
Glendale authorities and their canines have been searching vehicles, her school, local dumpsters and pools. They have also spoken to her classmates.
The Arizona Child Abduction Response Team and Phoenix police air units are also aiding in the search.
