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.
