The search continues for a missing girl from Glendale, Arizona, and her mother is pleading that her child be brought home.
She belongs to this family, Jerice Hunter, mother of Jahessye Shockley, said, CNN reported. She's somebody's child. Mine. Please bring my child home.
Jahessye, whose name is pronounced Jessie, was at home on Oct. 11 with her siblings, who are six, nine and 13 years old. Their mother went out for a quick errand. When she came back, Jahessye was gone.
Jahessye's profile on the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children describes her as 3'5 with black hair and brown eyes. She is black and weighs 55 pounds. She was last seen wearing blue jean shorts, a white t-shirt and pink sandals.
Police have described her as an active, able-bodied child, a local CBS News station reported.
Police issued an Amber Alert on Wednesday after receiving a tip that a woman put a little girl who resembled Jahessye in a van, but canceled the alert on Friday, The Associated Press reported.
Jahessye's mother has had some past legal troubles, according to her grandmother, The Arizona Republic reported.
I don't have any idea what went wrong, the grandmother, Shirley Johnson, said Thursday, The Arizona Republic reported. She's a loved child.
