Home » Kreneice Jones, 3: Went Missing With 2-Year-Old LaMoine Allen
There is about a three-hour stretch from Jackson, Mississippi, to Woodville. The small town boasted less the 900 people in the 2021 census, so one can only imagine the area back in 1992 when Kreneice Jones went missing. On May 10 of that year, the three-year-old was with her two-year-old friend LaMoine Allen, playing in front of a local store before they vanished.
According to reports, Kreneice and LaMoine were in front of the rural Jimmy Jackson Grocery Store, on Highway 24, with upwards of 20 other people. The youngsters were spotted playing with a handful of other children before Kreneice and LaMoine were shooed away. Kreneice was at the store with her father, who was reportedly separated from her mother. Also, LaMoine was with relatives he lived with in Edgar, Louisiana, about two hours away.
A woman driving by around 4:00 p.m. told police she saw the children outside at that time. Hers would be the last account.
Investigators unleashed an extensive search of the area, but no trace of LaMoine or Kreneice was located. The town sits in a wooded area with several waterways, and no evidence was found. It was learned that an unfamiliar vehicle was in the area at the time, described as a “blue compact car with a false convertible top, chrome hubcaps, and dark tinted windows.” However, it is unknown if the vehicle is connected to the missing children.
It is believed that the children were abducted by a non-family member. Police reportedly questioned several relatives and deduced they were not involved in the children’s disappearance.
At the time of her disappearance, Kreneice Jones stood 2 feet 11 inches tall and weighed 33 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a multicolor one-piece shorts outfit, a black and white polka-dot tie, and pink slipper sandals.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Wilkinson County Sheriff’s Office at (601) 888-3511 or their local authorities. The agency case number is 92-0512-2.
