Whitney Nicole Sanders

In August 2013, Whitney Nicole Sanders was robbed and beaten. She reported the incident to police, but a month passed and they hadn’t arrested any suspects involved with the violent incident. They were able to obtain phone records and DNA samples, both of which they believed would lead them to identify the person, or persons, involved, but those results didn’t return before Whitney went missing.

On September 20, 2013, Whitney was still healing from her assault when she went to a restaurant called Kelly’s Place on King’s Road in Jacksonville, Florida with a friend. It was around 1:30 a.m. when she told her friend that she had to make a quick run to the Exxon gas station across the street. The friend expected her to return in five to 10 minutes.

Whitney never came back.

The following morning, the friend checked their phone and saw that they received a missed call from Whitney at 5:00 a.m. That was the last contact that anyone has had with the 21-year-old woman. Investigators did look into Whitney’s involvement in prostitution and her history of solicitation-related arrests, but her friends and family insisted that no matter what, Whitney would have never disappeared without telling someone.

Whitney’s mother insisted that those involved with the robbery and assault against her daughter are also responsible for her disappearance.

At the time of her disappearance, Whitney was 5 feet 5 inches tall and 220 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair, brown eyes, and goes by the nicknames “Nicky” or “Buttercup.” She has multiple distinguishable tattoos including “Buttercup” across her chest, the letters “FSL” on her leg, and the name “Wanda” on her lower back.

Anyone with information regarding Whitney’s disappearance is urged to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at 904-630-0500 or their local authorities.

Sophie Reeder Missing

It has been a little over four years since Sophie Reeder mysteriously vanished and her family continues to seek answers. For many Black teens who go missing, their cases aren’t often taken seriously by police. You can peruse through the “teens” or “children” categories here on Our Black Girls and read through cases where authorities have often classified Black youths as runaways or dismissed their loved ones’ concerns because authorities assumed the children would eventually resurface. Unfortunately, many of those cases ended in tragedy while others were eventually investigated, often long after the child has been gone and leads have grown cold. (more…)
