Have you received your amber alert for any of these missing children?
Honestly, if it weren’t for social media, no one would know that these teens are missing. No major news coverage or amber alerts were put out for a single missing soul in D.C.
Most of the teens that were reported missing are minorities, Latinos and African-Americans. Although a lot of pictures are swarming around on the Internet with the hashtag #FindOurGirls, most of the teens missing in D.C. are males according to Heavy.
Reported on Fox5DC, three girls were missing this week, police have found one, in good health but the there two are still out there.
“14-year-old Shaniah Boyd was last seen Saturday at around 9:30 p.m. in the 4000 block of 6th Street in Southeast D.C. She is described as a black female with a medium complexion, black hair and brown eyes. She is 5’4” tall and weigh 140 pounds.”

The 17-year-old is described as a black female with a dark complexion, brown eyes and black hair. She is 5’7” tall and weighs 130 pounds. She was last seen wearing a black jacket and blue jeans.”
