The disappearances of people of color have been widely going unrecognized by the mainstream media.
ShineMyCrown has teamed up with the Black and Missing Foundation to spotlight cases of missing Black women and Black girls. We hope that we can help to bring these ladies home to their families.
Keeshae Eunique Jacobs was 21 when she went missing. Keeshae was seen leaving her apartment building on foot in the Midlothian area of Richmond, VA, off of Erich Road. She was headed to a friend’s house. Keeshae sent her mother a text, letting her know that she would come home the next day.
She was last seen wearing a pink headscarf, black basketball shorts and pink, black Nike basketball sneakers. It’s also possible that she was wearing a silver Pandora bracelet with a “Vegas” charm. Her fingernails were painted blue.
Her cellphone has not been used and her bank account has not been accessed since she went missing.
Keeshae has tattoos on her right foot, right leg and right hand of a leaf, paws and a flower, respectively.
This Sunday marks the fifth anniversary of her disappearance.
“I feel like somebody has her and they won”t let her get to me,” Keeshae’s mother, Toni Jacobs, said in a 2016 interview. “I don’t think she just left me because she wouldn’t do that.”
In 2017, Richmond Police revealed that they suspect foul play in relation to Keeshae’s disappearance.
“They’re saying someone incarcerated is aware, they say they know what happened, where she’s at, or have information period,” said Jacobs. “As of right now they say they’re not going to see this person again, because the person won’t talk.”
Please share this post and/or the flier. Somebody out there knows more about Keeshae’s disappearance.
