Missing Mom's Boyfriend: Baby Misses Her

RIVERDALE, Ga. -- The boyfriend of a Clayton County woman, missing since mid-July, said their 5-month-old daughter misses her mother.

Errol Moore, 19, said he and his mother have been caring for little Janyra ever since Janell Aaron, 20, vanished without a trace.

“I've been putting up pictures, I’ve been on Facebook, talking to her friends, calling her,” said Moore. He said last saw his girlfriend when he picked up their daughter from Aaron's Riverdale apartment in the 1600 block of Dayna Drive in Riverdale in mid-July.

Clayton County Police said there are "suspicious circumstances" surrounding Aaron's disappearance. Detectives said no friends or family members have heard from Aaron since she disappeared.

"This is out of her character," said Aaron's aunt, Janice Aaron-Whitley, who raised Aaron during her teenage years. "She didn't do this to me as a teenager. She's always been the responsible one for me."

Moore said he believes his girlfriend initially left because she was overwhelmed with the stress of being a new mom. But as time passes, he worries that something bad has happened to her.

Moore spoke to the television camera in hopes that his girlfriend would see the story. “We show her your picture every day," he said of his daughter. "And she knows who you are, and you know that she’s missing you. You know that you miss her. So you need to just come back and just be happy again.”

Investigators describe Aaron as black, 5-feet, 6-inches tall and weighing 110 pounds.

She has several tattoos, including one of the zodiac sign Aries on her right forearm, and a diamond on the back of her neck.

Police said Aaron also has a tattoo with her daughter's name on her right calf.

"Her (Aaron's) mom left her, so she promised she would never leave her child. She promised because she was left," said Aaron-Whitley.

Anyone with information about Aaron's disappearance is asked to call Detective Childs of the Clayton County Police Department at 678-614-9099.

Snipped from Article...

Aaron’s cousin, Tyra Aaron, called police on July 19 to report her missing, according to Officer E. Glover, of the Clayton County Police Department.

“The complainant [Tyra Aaron] advised that witness No. 1 [Moore] would not give any information on when the last time he saw her [Janell Aaron], or his whereabouts with the baby,” said Glover, in the police report.

AFAIK, family generally needs to submit cases to sites like the one above.

Unfortunately, it is easy to let missing person's cases slip through the cracks and get little to no attention from the general public (especially adult cases). Generally, families and friends of the missing person need to be the ones to get the word out. And, of course, websites like this where concerned and caring people can do their part. Sometimes LE plays a more active role in alerting media, organizing searches, etc. It all depends on the jurisdiction.

Janell not seen or heard from since July 17.
Last person to see her, her baby's father.
He states that Janell was going to a job interview.

Where was the job interview? Did she have a car?
Was she going to take public transportatin?
What was she wearing?
If she did have a job interview, did she make it there?

Any security cameras near the boy friend's home?

The boy friend leaps to mind as someone who may know more than he telling... last person to see Janell, did not report her missing, rambling statement about Janell
in his press interview.
He may only have Janell's best interest in mind, I certainly don't know, but

Do we know the date of this picture?

The news articles state the baby is 5 months old. I am unsure if that means 5 months as of July 17 or 5 months old now.

But the pic seems as if it would be close to the date Jannel went missing.

If anybody does make contact with the family it might become important to know if she swims.

(YW FHC.)

Also, if you look to the SE of 1600 Dayna Dr there is an "Overlook Terrace". If that is really an overlook and the area goes downhill there I would be sure to search there first along with the retention pond. sorry :(

ETA: Also, coming out of the apartment complex on W Lees Mills Rd and going North there is a stretch of woods on either side, very secluded. Easy and quick to get to.

There haven't been ANY ground searches at all? My word...oh my. :(

Further N of the area I last spoke about there is a "Lake of The Woods Blvd". The lake that is there appears to either have a "washout" or Driveway down to the Lake. If that is a driveway that cars can navigate it becomes a very likely area as well because the Lake appears to be ringed with trees that would block the views from nearby homes. I would be interested to know if the apartments nearby are at a higher elevation and can see the Lake area well or not.

ETA: The more I look at it the more it looks like a wash.

Might also want to find out if the apartment complex perimeter is fenced off from the woods surrounding the complex. I can not get a close enough look on maps to tell. In other words, is there anywhere in the apartment complex, close to her apartment or otherwise, where one could just go for a walk in the woods? Entrances from within the complex?

I would think that due to safety issues with young children it would be fenced, but ya' never know. Nature trails maybe, idk?

Just a gentle reminder to anyone. When we interact with the family we do so as private citizens and must be careful not to represent ourselves as a representative of WS in anyway. (I know that most here know that! :))

Things we can do:
1. Contact the local reporters and ask for more coverage. Updates published. FHC has already done this, the more the merrier is a good thing.

2. See about getting her on some missing persons websites. National databases.

I'm open for other suggestions too!

FHC where is the link you used for the email for the reporter please? I'll write too.

That organization is now defunct and no longer in operation. The new org that was established for adults is findthemissing.org and is via the NAMUS website in which police, organizations and even the general public can register a missing loved one. They then will verify info and post. However, it takes a bit of time before one appears in NamUS if the public is entering the data as there may be many things they may not know...so NamUS will contact police to enter the rest of the data.

This is so unlike any of the normal missing person's cases we see where family and friends work tirelessly posting flyers, conducting searchess, asking for media interviews, etc. This is quite bizarre I agree.

Her father has a few comments on his facebook early on praying for her safe return but nothing recently. It just seems everyone has resolved to give up. So sad for Janell. :(

I am so sorry to hear of this tragedy. One of the charges against the boyfriend was "concealing death" in addition to murder and aggravated assault. I guess I've never seen that come along with a murder charge before. At first I thought perhaps it meant concealing the body but I can't quite wrap my brain around "concealing death". Perhaps too early and not enough coffee yet.

Prayers for Janell's daughter, Mr. Aaron and the rest of the Aaron family.

CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. -- Police said a 19-year-old was charged in the disappearance and slaying of a metro Atlanta woman who had been missing since July.

Police found the body of Janelle Aaron this week.

Officials said the suspect helped solve the case.

Channel 2 Action News was there as Errol Moore Jr., 19, made his way to a squad car with his lips sealed.

He was charged with murder in connection with the disappearance and death of Aaron. He was also charged with concealing a death and aggravated assault, police said.

Clayton County Police made an arrest, Thursday, on charges of murder, aggravated assault, and concealing the death of another, after a suspect allegedly led authorities to a body, in Jonesboro.

According to Officer Otis Willis, III, a Clayton County police spokesman, police were given information that led them to the body of a female, who is believed to be Janell Crystal Aaron, 20, of Jonesboro.

“She has been missing since July, and we believe it to be her body,” said Willis, at a press conference held at police headquarters.

The suspect, Errol Alexis Moore, Jr., 19, provided police with the location of the body, officials said.
