Jerrica Laws Missing

A mystery has plagued the Park Forest, Illinois community for over five years. On Sunday, August 16, 2015, Jerrica Laws reportedly left her home in the Park Forest area to take a walk before meeting up with an unidentified person. It’s unclear how long she intended to be away from home, but the FBI reports that she didn’t take a purse, money, or identification with her at the time. No one has had contact with the then-24-year-old since.

According to Jerrica’s family, she has an “undiagnosed mental disability” and had recently moved to Park Forest after living in Indiana for two years, specifically in the Indianapolis and Spencer areas. The National Missing & Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) reports that Jerrica Laws would regularly take walks, so her activity on the day of her disappearance wasn’t abnormal. However, none of the reports or investigative agencies have shared any information into the possible identity of the person she was meeting with that day.

Reports also state that Jerrica wasn’t the type of young adult who was actively involved in the bar or club scene. She’s described as a “homebody” who enjoyed going to church. Her loved ones have set up the Facebook Page Jerrica Laws is Missing where they update the public about any new information about her case. Please visit and consider sharing their posts to help bring Jerrica home.

At the time of her disappearance, Jerrica Laws stood 5 feet 1 inch to 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighed between 140 and 145 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair (medium-length or shoulder-length) and brown eyes. Jerrica doesn’t drive and her middle name is “Lizette.” Any distinguishing characteristics have not been shared and the FBI’s website reports that she doesn’t have dental records on file. She would be 29-years-old at the time of this publication.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Park Forest Police Department at (708) 748-4701 or their local authorities. Her agency case number is 15-10996.

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…)
