Jahi Marques Turner

Last seen in San Diego, California on April 25, 2002

Vital statistics: Black male. Born on February 10, 2000. Black hair; brown eyes. He is ambidextrous, has a light complexion and suffers from eczema in the creases of his body. 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.

David William Maddot, Kent Lionel Munro, and Omar Kahil Shearer

Last seen in Marco Island, Collier County, Florida, on November 11, 1994

Vital statistics: David is a white male. He was born on January 19, 1969. Dark brown hair, dark brown eyes. Was twenty-five at the time. Kent is a white male. He was born on January 12, 1969. Blond hair, blue eyes. Was twenty-five at the time. Omar is a black (Jamaican) male. He was born on May 20, 1969. Black hair, dark brown eyes. Was twenty-five at the time.

Circumstances: Maddot, Munro, and Shearer went out to sea with Jeff Wandich, an experienced boater and diver whose family owned a condominium on Marco Island. They were planning to dive and fish near the wreck of the Baja California, a freighter sunk by a German submarine during World War II. After anchoring the Sea Esta, they went fishing for some time before diving to the wreck 120 feet below. All four divers left the boat at the same time and at 35 feet, Shearer and Munro stopped and headed back to the surface. Madott and Wandich continued their descent. Twenty minutes later, Madott and Wandich returned to the surface, only to find the boat's stern submerged and its bow sticking out three feet above the water line. They released their dive tanks but kept on their life preservers, and clung to the ship until it sank four hours later. They decided to swim to a communications tower three miles away. Wandich made it and was later rescued; the others were never seen again. An air and sea search by the U.S. Coast Guard and private boaters ensued, stretching from Fort Myers Beach to the Florida Keys. Only some personal items from the boat were located and no diving equipment from the remaining three was ever discovered. The FBI briefly investigated. Wandich took, and passed, a lie detector test. Classified as Endangered Missing.

Reason for inclusion: With no leads and little evidence, the case was closed by the FBI and the men have never been seen again.
