EAST ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – An East St. Louis mother is pleading for help to find her missing teenage son.

“Cause it’s a mean world. People do not care if you’re sick, they just don’t care. I just want him to come home,” said Shequitta Martin, mother of 19-year-old Jamaal Rich. Rich has been missing since February 5.

Martin received a phone call from Rich telling her he was in Los Angeles pursuing his dream.

Rich’s family says he has medical problems and is not taking his medications. The family also believes he has mental issues.

Anyone with any information about his whereabouts are asked to call police.
