A Google search of the name “Janice Shantea Jones” won’t bring up any information about the 23-year-old who disappeared from Saginaw, Michigan. Not even “Janice Jones.” Not “Janice Shantea Jones missing.” Not “Janice Jones Michigan.” Not any variation of this woman’s name and anything associated with her being a missing woman from The Great Lakes State. It’s baffling that in 2018 an adult can vanish and there is no news coverage, not even a blip in local media, that is accessible by the general public. The only reason I came across Janice’s case was through the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) database. Even then, there isn’t much information listed about the case, other than what I will provide below.
In a time where nearly everyone posts everything from what they had for breakfast to their intimate honeymoon moments, I’d expect to find some bits about the disappearance of Janice Shantea Jones. In Spring 2018, Janice was a resident of Flint, Michigan and March 10 was the last time that members of Janice’s family heard from her. She told them that she needed someone to pick her up from a bus stop in Saginaw, Michigan, about 40 miles away from Flint. The arrangements were made and someone did arrive to give Janice a ride, but the person said she never showed up. No one has been able to get in contact with Janice since. She has not been seen or heard from.
Janice stands 5’9″ tall and at the time of her disappearance weighed somewhere between 160 – 175 pounds. She has black hair and brown eyes. She has no noted tattoos, but she does have a nose piercing in her right nostril. Anyone with information regarding Janice’s whereabouts is urged to contact the Michigan State Police at (989) 495-5555.
