    Still missing. Recent article including her case: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.chi...media=AMP+HTML

    When Sawyer asked the officials whether the police department could use any further resources to help their efforts to find missing persons, sergeant Jeffrey Coleman, who oversees missing persons investigations in Area South, said only that it's important to communicate to the city's parents that they must stay aware of their children's activities and whereabouts.

    In short, per CPD, there is no problem with the city's missing persons caseload or the department's handling thereof. But after the 25-minute hearing, Sawyer said he wasn't quite satisfied.

    "I know they sound like they have a handle on it, but when there's still a disparate amount of young black women being discovered missing and oftentimes due to some unsavory circumstances, we need to get them back to their homes or find out why they ran in the first place," he said.

    Sawyer added that he didn't buy the idea that there are lots of runaway kids out there who just don't "want" to be found. "There's some underlying issues that usually force someone to make that kind of tough decision—that they would rather be on the street than stay at their home. We need to find out why is that."
