Is Jahessye Shockely's Disappearance Worthy of National Media Attention? Her Family Seems to Think So

Jahssye Shockley's been missing for nearly nine days.
Jahessey Shockley's been missing for nearly nine days, and there hasn't been a peep about her disappearance in the national media -- and her family wants to know why.

We've been a little curious ourselves, considering that cable news channels have been dwelling on the disappearance of Lisa Irwin, a 10-month-old Kansas City girl who disappeared from her home on October 4.

"I want the national media to pick it up. I won't stop until they do. I don't know why it's not national now," Shirley Johnson, Jahessye grandmother, tells a local TV news station.  "They have that ability to send out to other states.  They have that ability to make sure someone from across the nation [knows] what is going on."

If you ask us, she's got a point. In fact, we nearly penned a post yesterday under the headline "Attention, America: Lisa Irwin Isn't the Only Missing Child Right Now."

We want to know what you think, though: is Shockley's disappearance worthy of national media coverage?

At her vigil on last night, a Hispanic man who lives on her block stated that he knows where Jahessye is but is scared to come forward due to being deported.

If I were in charge, I'd start looking at the black people in Jahessye's life. Duh... maybe the mother?

I am Jahessey's cousin, it the police do not need to start looking at the black people in her life, but all people in her life....definitely starting with her mother!

Clearly, this is the mother. But, we are going to waste a whole lot of time pretending that we don't know it's the mother because that would be racist.

Because she is stating her opinion, which probably differs greatly from yours, you are assuming she is Jahessey's mother!?  Wow!

Baby Lisa's parents are looking guilty as hell and she gets reported EVERY DAY ALLLL DAY. we dont even know these other people. I mean c'mon b fair

Unfortunately, when a case is in the national spotlight, the focus is no longer on the child.  Case in point:  Lisa Irwin.  The attention is now on the parents.

With Hunter's criminal past and her allegations of abuse, substance abuse and violence to a spouse by her mother, Shirley Johnson, where do you think the spotlight will be directed?

On the plus side, the family stands to be rewarded financially, for photos and appearances, if the story goes national.  That is, if money is more important than finding your lost child.

Isnt that the case with just about all sensational cases covered by the national media. I cannot speak Jahessey's maternal side of the family, but her paternal side would much rather have she and her sister that is currently in foster care back with us than any amount of money in the world.

Ever child deserves Nation Wide attention when they go missing no matter the race. She is an innocent child and needs to be brought back to her family asap. If it had been your child you would be doing the same thing this family is doing. Lets bring this child home and get her face out there come on America.

Every child missing needs and DESERVES NATIONAL ATTENTION!!!!!!

One thing I've noticed, though, is that missing children type organizations have been bogged down in custody dispute type "abductions." These are certainly problematic, but so numerous that they distract from non-family kidnapping situations.

Unfortunately when national media reports on missing children, they only seem to do so when the child is white.

Really?  Are you familiar with William McQuain?  Or Phylicia Barnes?  Maybe Mariha Smith?

And then there's Christopher Barrios.

Maybe you just notice the missing white ones.

What efforts, if any, have been done by the family to contact various national media outlets?

I am a part of her family, 2nd cousin to be exact, and we have tried contacting national news outlets, but to no avail. Please do not think we are sitting around waiting on others to do it for us. We HAVE NOT received responses from anyone. not even a thank you but no thank you. I've even contacted Nancy Grace...thought she would jump on board with the way she covered the Caylee Anthony trial, but unfortunately not a peep from her camp either.

People do care.  Forums throughout the web are discussing this case at this very moment.  And the funny thing, no one seems to care about the race of this child . . . just the fact she is missing and is not forgotten!

I hope YOUR call got through to the national media outlets.

Do keep us posted.
