Teenage runaway Jashyah Moore was found safe in New York City after she was last seen at a deli in East Orange, NJ a month ago.

No Amber Alert was issued for the wayward 14-year-old after she was reported as a possible runaway on October 14.

Acting Essex County Prosecutor Theodore N. Stephens confirmed Jashyah was found safe on Thursday.

"Jashyah is currently safe and is being provided all appropriate services. She will be returned to NJ shortly. No additional information is available at this time," said Stephens in a press release.

During a press conference, law enforcement officials said Jashyah was initially reported as a runaway. Jashyah's family denied she was a runaway and expressed concerns that her life was in danger.

According to a family member's post on Facebook, Jashyah has run away from home before. She is active on social media and may have been lured away from home by a social media user.

A $20,000 reward was offered for her safe return.

Jamie Moore believed her daughter was abducted and she insists her daughter would not run away from home. "She didn't go. She ain't missing. Somebody got my daughter," she said last month. "Please come home Shyah. We miss you."

A vehicle connected to missing 1-year-old Jaclyn "Angel" Dobbs was found abandoned in Missouri, 2 days after her mother was murdered.

The toddler was reported missing Tuesday, Nov. 9, after police discovered the body of 21-year-old Ja'nya Murphy in her Wheeling, Illinois apartment.

Police conducted a welfare check on Murphy after she failed to show up to work Tuesday or contact her family. The family said they last heard from Murphy on Monday.

Murphy's body was discovered late Tuesday night when officers climbed onto a balcony and entered her home at the Hunt Club Apartments at 356 Inland Drive.

There was no sign of forced entry, and Murphy's 1-year-old daughter, Jaclyn, was missing, according to Deputy Police Chief Al Steffen.

Police believe Murphy was targeted and her murder is not a random crime.

A statewide Amber Alert was issued for Jaclyn. She was believed to be in a maroon 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan.

The SUV was found abandoned in Missouri, but the toddler was not in the vehicle, police said.

Clarkston PD

Police in Georgia are still searching for a missing 1-year-old boy who was strapped into the backseat of a stolen grey Ford Explorer.

An Amber Alert was issued for Blaise Barnett early Wednesday, an hour after someone stole the SUV with him in it.

The child was in his car seat while his parents were unloading grocery bags at 1 a.m. Wednesday at the Parc 1000 apartments on Montreal Road in Clarkston, Georgia.

The keys were left in the ignition and the engine was running.

Xavier Barnett, Blaise's father, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution he had just carried his 3-year-old nephew into the apartment, and when he returned for his son, the SUV was gone.

"I just broke down. Please, bring him home. The car don't even matter, just bring my son home," he said.
 

Police found the abandoned SUV Wednesday afternoon, 11 hours after it was stolen. But the child is still missing.

The SUV with paper tags was located at the vacant Brannon Hills Condominiums complex along Memorial College Avenue.

James Dent told Channel 2 Action News he saw a man walking in the area, which drew his attention to the stolen SUV.

Dent said he tried to approach the man, who ran off shouting. Clarkston police found the man and questioned him, but later released him.

Social media users expressed their doubts about the case on Twitter.com.

She was last seen walking along Northside Parkway near North Paran Road around 4 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 5.

Caitlin's mother, Angela Winchester, said her daughter's cell phone was either turned off or is dead and they have no way of tracking her.

"I've been calling her number all through the night, all through the morning, and I even been able to reach her, and it just clicks. It doesn't even ring anymore," Angela Winchester told CBS46.

"With the phone... being off and dead and with the increasing rates of attacks and violence in the city recently, a mother's heart, a father's heart is wounded to even contemplate that possibility.

"So again, we're hopeful and we're prayerful and if anyone has any information on our sweet gurl please just help us bringer home."

Angela spoke with a bus driver who said many buses were running behind schedule that day. She said children were "hopping on the wrong bus" and pleading with bus drivers to take them home.

Police in California canvassed an apartment complex where adoptive parents lived before two brothers went missing without a trace.

Trezol and Jacqueline West previously lived at the Casa Loma Apartments in Bakersfield, with their six children, including missing boys, Orson and Orrin West, ages 3 and 4.

Police spoke with neighbors after the family moved to a new home in California City in September. The Wests reported the two boys missing from their home on December 21.

Trezol told police the boys were playing outside when he went to gather firewood at a back gate. His wife was inside the home wrapping gifts, he said.

"I came in the house. I saw them there, went into the house, came back out, didn't see them there," he said.

Police searched the house and dug up the backyard. They said the couple have been cooperative, but there is evidence that the couple know more than what they are saying.

"They did something," said the boy's biological mother, Ryan Dean, who arrived from Bakersfield to help with the search. "I feel like my kids are somewhere around here. I can feel it."

The couple's four other children -- two adopted and two biological -- have been taken into protective custody.

Daybell was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of concealing or destroying evidence after police in Idaho executed a search warrant at his home in Fremont County.

"During the search of the property, investigators found what appears to be unidentified human remains," chief of police Gary Hagen said.

Vallow and Daybell fled to Hawaii last year after police and federal agents in Idaho questioned them repeatedly about the location of the children.

Vallow missed a court-ordered deadline to bring the children to the Rexburg Police Department in Idaho.

Tylee and Joshua were last seen in September 2019, according to police. Surveillance cameras at an Idaho storage facility showed Vallow and Daybell removing heavy items from a storage unit.

Police served a search warrant on the storage unit, but did not disclose if any evidence was found.

The case has frustrated law enforcement who believed the children were deceased.

At least 5 people -- including Vallow's ex-husband, Charles, and Daybell's wife, Tammy -- have died under suspicious circumstances in Vallow's inner circle.

Tammy told police that a man fired several shots at her in the weeks before she died mysteriously in her sleep.

Vallow and Daybell married 2 weeks after Tammy's death. Tammy's body was exhumed by police. Toxicology results are pending.

Vallow's first husband, Charles, was shot and killed by her brother, Alex, on July 11, 2019. Alex claimed he shot Charles in self-defense. Vallow was at home at the time of the shooting. She corroborated the story that her brother gave police.

Alex mysteriously died on December 11, 2019 of unknown causes.

Vallow and Daybell are cult members who were preparing for the second coming of Jesus in July 2020.

Tylee was preparing to return to college at the time of her disappearance. Joshua, who was adopted, was diagnosed with autism.

Police are having no luck finding Huxley, the 5-year-old boy who was "rehomed" by Youtube vlogger Myka Stauffer and her husband James.

YouTube viewers lashed out at the couple after they gave up their adopted son because his autism and other special needs made him too difficult to handle.

The couple adopted Huxley from China in 2017 when he was 2-years-old.

The state of Ohio launched an investigation into the case, and the police are now involved because the boy can not be located in Ohio.

"We're very aware of this case," Tracy Whited, Delaware County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman, told BuzzFeed News. "We are investigating, but it is an active case, and as such, we cannot divulge too much information just yet."

Buzzfeed confirmed that Huxley is not being cared for by the state of Ohio. The county sheriff's office said it's working with "several other agencies" to find Huxley.

Fans of the couple's popular YouTube channel began asking questions after pictures of the boy were removed from their Instagram account and they acted like he never existed.

The couple was criticized for exploiting Huxley for profit on their YouTube channel. According to Today, major brands cut ties with the couple following the intense backlash. Brands including Playtex Baby, Danimals, Suave, Chili's, and Big Lots have announced they will no longer partner with the Stauffers.

In response to the constant questions, the couple, who have four other children, recorded a video explaining that Huxley was "rehomed" with another family who could better address his needs.

The Stauffers said "numerous medical professionals" told them Huxley would need a "different fit."

"We've been trying to get his needs met and help him out as much as possible." James Stauffer said.
