Last seen wearing a long-sleeved blue shirt imprinted with images of Winnie The Pooh and Tigger, blue nylon cargo pants with an orange drawstring and gray Air Jordan shoes. Was two when last seen.
Circumstances: He was last seen in Balboa Park in the Golden Hill area near 28th Street and Cedar Street. His stepfather, Tieray Dewayne Jones, said that he left him near the sandbox while he purchased a soda from a nearby vending machine. Tieray stated that a woman and two children were near the area at the time. When he got back, Jahi had vanished. The woman has been identified; she provided unspecified information relating to Turner's case. Some believe that Jahi was murdered by his stepfather or otherwise accidentally killed due to diary entries Tieray had written at the time. No evidence has been unearthed that Jahi met with foul play, however. His stepfather is currently imprisoned on an unrelated drug charge. Classified as a Non-Family Abduction.
Reason for inclusion: Jahi's case was closed in January 2004 for unknown reasons. He remains missing. It was opened again several years later, but he remains here as our inspiration.

Circumstances: She was last seen at East High School, where she was a sophmore. She attended her first two classes, but left because of a fight between her and other students. She then went to a nearby grocery store, where she met Wesley Ira Purkey, a local handyman. She got into his white 1989 Ford pickup truck and has never been heard from again. She was initially believed to have left of her own accord, but eventually that theory was discarded. Purkey confessed to Long's murder while he was in prison for murdering an elderly woman. He has a long criminal record and was addicted to alcohol and drugs in 1998. He stated he took Long to Lansing, Kansas, raped her and stabbed her to death, and then dismembered her and burned her remains. He was charged with her death in 2001 and was convicted in 2003 and then sentenced to death. Classified as a Non-Family Abduction.
Reason for inclusion: Long's remains were mistakenly reported as found in 2004, but that was false. Her case is now closed and she remains missing.
