Every year, 4,400 bodies without names are found. For every 100,000 people throughout the country, there are around 6.5 people who are missing.
In a similar missing person case, Carrollton Police Department is still looking for Kaylee Jones, a 17-year-old who has been missing for four months, with no solid clues as to her whereabouts. Jones reportedly climbed out of her second-story bedroom window on June 14 to leave her family's home in Carrollton's 700 block of Whooping Creek Church Road. She was 16 at the time.
The police gave a description of Kaylee as being 5 feet 8 inches tall, 135 pounds, and having brown eyes and brown hair. Her mother believed that she may have been sporting a pair of black Converse sneakers or tennis shoes and carrying a blue book bag "with a horse on the front." The family recently moved to Georgia from Brooksville, Florida, where they still have family and friends. The officials believe that she may also be using her birth name, Jillian Paige Temple. Her family wants her to return home and is concerned for her safety.
Those with information about Kaylee were requested to get in touch with Carroll County Sheriff's Office Investigator Courtney Short at 770-830-5916 or email@example.com. Authorities also established a tip line at 770-830-5942.
