16-year-old Phylicia Barnes' Killer Caught! Awaits Trial

NEWS: 16-YEAR-OLD PHYLICIA BARNES IS MISSING…SO IS MEDIA ATTENTION


Authorities are currently searching for 16-year-old Phylicia Barnes who disappeared on December 28th while visiting family in Baltimore, Maryland. The high school senior and honors student, who is originally from North Carolina, was last heard from via a Facebook posting she made that she was at her sister’s apartment with her sister’s boyfriend. Several people who visited the apartment are currently considered persons of interest.
There has been no activity on Barnes’ Facebook account, bank account or cell phone account since she was reported missing, Baltimore police said.
Barnes was last seen wearing a navy blue hooded pea coat, a turquoise thermal shirt, blue jeans and white slippers/boots.
Investigators in Baltimore are offering a $2,500 reward for information in her disappearance. The tip line number is 1-855-223-0033.
Billboards featuring blown-up photos of Phylicia Barnes are being placed along the Interstate 95 corridor between Baltimore and New York. They will include the number of the 24-hour toll-free tip line that was recently created for the case.

Such a shame...Asha Degree was in my grade in the same town as me when she went missing. A girl I graduated with went missing for like a day, but she came back and admitted to running away. Such a shame. Hope for the best for her and her family.

People go missing every day. If you want media attention you need to be beautiful and rich, and disappear on some exotic island.

Re: 16-year-old Phylicia Barnes Is Missing…so Is Media Attention

^Exactly. Why does this case stand out? Almost everyone knows someone who went missing and there was no media attention for them. My friend's brother went missing 3 years ago and has still never been heard from. They think he left the country under an alias but no one has any clue really. My friend says the not knowing is worse than actually knowing something bad happened to him.

Maybe the difference is because they think your friends brother may have left the country on his own. I hope that's true and someday he'll contact his family.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

Looking at her picture, I can see why there is no media frenzy around her missing: Missing White Woman Syndrome (MWWS) clearly doesn't apply here.

American media can be pretty messed up sometimes.

I saw this either on NBC or CNN (can't remember which) so the media attention is there.

It was just speculation based on his "dream" of living in another country. There is no evidence of him leaving the country and really they kind of just tell themselves that to make themselves feel better. Basically I was just making the point that people go missing everyday as sad as it is.

It's because she's black.

I just found out that roughly 140,000 young people in the UK go missing each year. That's a lot of missing media attention.

Phylicia Barnes Remains Missing

Jan 10th, 2011 | By Paul P | Category: Alert Follow Up News


Phylicia Barnes

Baltimore, MD. As time passes police are reported to fear the worse in the case of 16 year old Phylicia Simone Barnes. They have not had a single confirmed sighting since the teenager disappeared. Phylicia was last heard from on December 28th 2010 via her Facebook account. She posted a note saying she was at her sister’s apartment with her sister’s boyfriend.

A lack of media attention in the case has caused some to criticize the national news networks citing racial double standards because Phylicia is black. Baltimore officials have voiced their concern on the subject.

Teenagers are often taken across state lines rendering local media coverage much less useful. No Amber Alert was issued in the case which may have attributed to the lack of attention. There is an entry on the National Missing and Exploited Children website who are also the designated clearing house for Amber Alerts. People remain hopeful that Phylicia will be found safe and returned to her family.

Authorities are utilizing helicopters including 2 from the FBI as well as digital billboards along interstate 95 in the search. With no tips coming in the search may not have a direction left to go in.

Authorities said rumors of her body being found were untrue.

If you have any information whatsoever about Phylicia Barne’s disappearance please contact the Information Hotline at 855-223-0033.

Yeah, she does. But if Chanda ever goes missing, I'll be the one leading the search party.
