16 year-old Cassandra Jones has been missing for eight days now. Her grandparents, who are raising her, have not seen or heard from her. And no one is reporting any sign of her.
So where is she? That is the growing concern. I spoke with Cassandra's grandmother, Sylvia White, and she says Cassandra does not have a boyfriend the family is aware of. When teenagers disappear, authorities often discover them with a boyfriend or girlfriend. Family members also tell me Cassandra did not have rowdy, unruly friends nor did she hang out by herself.
According to the family, Saint Louis police have launched an investigation and are talking to family members and others who may have had contact with Cassandra Jones.
