Sharaun Cole Missing

This case was brought to my attention by Crime Noir Podcast, another great source to find information regarding the missing and murdered within the Black community. While it isn’t much known about Sharaun Cole, The Doe Network reports that the 12-year-old vanished from Manhattan, New York in 1983.

Sharaun Cole Missing

It was on February 25, 1983, when Sharaun Cole went to play outside of her family home on Edgecomb Avenue. According to her mother, the little girl was seen at a nearby park but never returned. She’s never been heard from or seen again. The Charley Project states that Sharaun’s mother insisted there were no problems at home that would cause the pre-teen to runaway. Not much else is known about the decades-old case.

At the time of her disappearance, Sharaun Cole stood 5 feet 6 inches tall to 5 feet 7 inches tall and was 110 to 115 pounds. She has dark brown/black hair and brown eyes. Sharaun was last seen wearing a beige wool jacket, blue jeans, and blue and white sneakers. TCP writes that she was wearing a gold jacket, as well, but that isn’t listed in The Doe Network. Her birthdate is October 8, 1970, but she apparently was known to use the same date with the year 1969. She would be 49-years-old at the time of this publication.

Monica Bennett Missing

This is a case I initially came across when I first launched Our Black Girls and it continues to weigh on my heart. I’ve written about it on social media but I haven’t dedicated space here on the site for a full story, until today. It involves siblings, 15-year-old Monica Bennett and her 13-year-old brother Michael, and it centers on how they both went missing from Brunswick, Georgia on June 21, 1989. (more…)
