    Randall Childs and girlfriend Karen Young were last seen leaving his apartment in the 3000 block of Grand River near Rosa Parks the evening of June 7. "Nobody has heard a word from them since," Murray said.

    Crime Stoppers of Michigan last month offered a $1,000 reward for information about the missing couple.

    "But they told us there haven't been any tips yet," Murray said. "It doesn't make sense: (Young) left her purse and all her belongings behind. My brother left all his toiletries in his apartment. There's nothing to indicate they were planning to leave. It's going on four months now, and there hasn't been a trace."

    Childs, 51, worked at Pasquale's restaurant in Royal Oak, while Young recently was laid off from her job at the city's Parks and Recreation Department. Young is 5-foot-3-inches tall, 140 pounds with a birthmark on her neck. She was last seen wearing black pin-striped pants with a cream top and black necktie. Randall is 5-foot-9-inches tall, 140 pounds, with a mustache and beard. He was last seen wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans.

    Sharon Murray is desperate to find out what happened to her brother, Randall Childs, who has been missing for more than four months now.

    He walked out of an apartment on Grand River in Detroit on the night of June 7th right after his girlfriend, Karen Young, left the same apartment and neither have been heard from since.

    This doesn't seem to have much happening about it and the family seems to be doing quite a lot to get attention to this.


    I hope there will be answers soon for this man's sister. Two people vanish and a year later --- nothing.

    Families hope DNA will lead to answers

    Those who opted to participate in the event called Missing in Michigan had swabs of saliva taken from inside their mouths. The DNA results will be compared to human remains at the Wayne County morgue and otherwise used in searches. The samples will be kept on file, so if other cases come up, authorities can run a comparison to see whether there is a match.

    [snip]

    Like the other families who came to the event, Antonio Childs, 38, of Dearborn Heights and Sharon Murray of Plymouth Township struggle with the weight of not knowing. Randall Childs — Antonio Childs’ uncle and Sharon Murray’s brother — was last seen June 7, 2011, leaving his home with a girlfriend in the 3000 block of Grand River Avenue in Detroit.

    Murray said the disappearance of Randall Childs, who would now be 51, has been agonizing.

    State Hopes To Match DNA Samples To Unidentified Bodies In Morgues

    Michigan has more than 140 sets of unidentified human remains in its morgues around the state — and more than 4,000 missing persons cases.

    The Michigan State Police and the Wayne County Medical Examiners are hoping to close the books on some of those missing cases by holding a DNA drive on Tuesday.

    Maurice’s brother Randall Childs has been missing for two years and she has given DNA to this program. She is relentless in her search, and has searched the morgue several times to view bodies in hopes of finding her brother.

    That's heartbreaking reading that the sister has visited the morgue several times to find her brother. Thank goodness for DNA and hopefully through diligence of the family and the Wayne County Medical Examiners answers will be forthcoming.
