It expected that when a toddler vanishes in broad daylight, there would be an abundance of information shared about her disappearance. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case for three-year-old Jeanine Camille Barnwell who vanished from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1985. I could find very little information about her decades-old missing person case, but I’ve included in this post all that I could gather.
According to reports, the last person to see little Jeanine was her mother on November 15. The specific circumstances regarding the child’s disappearance are freckled with vacancies, as all that has been shared is that she vanished sometime during the day. Whether she was at school, playing in a park, outside of her home, or with friends or relatives isn’t known. Investigators do believe that foul play is involved in this case, but it hasn’t been shared if there were ever any persons of interest or suspects attached to Jeanine Camille Barnwell’s case.
At the time of her disappearance, Jeanine Camille Barnwell was 4 feet tall and 55 pounds. She had brown eyes and black/dark brown hair styled in two adorable pigtails. Other descriptors including any distinguishing including marks, moles, or scars are unknown. It also hasn’t been shared if the three-year-old went by any nicknames or had favorite toys or items. Jeanine would be 38-years-old at the time of this publication.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the Philadelphia Police Department at 215-685-1180 or their local authorities.
Please share this story about Jeanine Camille Barnwell to reignite the investigation into her case. She is our sister and her life matters.
Monica Bennett, 15: She & Her 13-Year-Old Brother Vanished In 1989
Police classified them as runaways & only changed their case to “endangered missing” 20 years later.
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…)
