Lakeesha Alert: Where is Phylicia Barnes?

We issued the Lakeesha Alert earlier this month. Baltimore Police are baffled by the lack of clues leading them to the safe return of Phylicia Barnes. The 17-year-old honor student’s birthday came and went while she has been missing.

Phylicia, who turned 17 on January 12, went missing on December 28, while visiting her college-age half-sister, 28, in Baltimore for the holidays. According to police, she had gone out at around 1:30 p.m. to grab a bite to eat and possibly get a hair cut. Authorities have stated they believe she was abducted.

Phylicia’s cell phone is off, she hasn’t used her debit card, and she has not updated her Facebook page, since her disappearance.  Phylicia is an honor student at a charter school and was set to graduate a year early due to her stellar academic record.

Police focus on 12 people who were of the last to see the young beauty, but so far no one has been named a suspect or person of interest.

Lakeesha alert........cute.

It would certainly be nice to see more interest in missing children and women that weren't blondes.

Reggie - Ain't no point in complaining about what 'The Man' ain't doing for us ... we simply need to do for ourselves. If the 'Amber Alert' system doesn't work for nubian sisters who are missing ... then we'll create the 'Lakeesha Alert' to do so!
