    Oh my goodness. Just a baby.

    Thank you, Moonwalker. Before you started creating these posts, I had no sense of how many unidentified black females there were :(

    I feel like they are less likely to have a thread that's why I've been focusing more on minorities.

    In this particular case it seems like there were witnesses that actually saw her?

    It sounds like they saw a female (maybe mother?) with the suitcase. I'm not sure they saw the living child.

    The shocking - and forgotten - toll of missing black women across the U.S. | Daily Mail Online
    "A renewed campaign to highlight hundreds of missing African-American women has been launched amid ongoing criticism that less attention is given to their cases by authorities and the media.

    According to the National Crime Information Center, nearly 40 per cent of those who have disappeared, often in suspicious circumstances, are black. However critics allege that public attention mainly focuses on white women who have vanished.

    According to the Black And Missing Foundation, most women disappear in the states of New York, Georgia, North Carolina, Maryland and Florida."

    Ms Wilson added: 'It is time for all people - regardless of race - to be treated equally in their times of greatest need.'

    The Black and Missing Foundation was set up by a former law enforcement officer and public relations experts to support families and raise awareness of those who have disappeared. It also offers tips on personal safety".
