Although African Americans make up just 13 percent of the U.S. population, we account for 33 percent of the missing in the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s database. Cases involving African Americans also tend to receive less media coverage than missing Whites, with missing men of color getting even less attention.
NewsOne has partnered with the Black and Missing Foundation to focus on the crisis of missing African Americans.
To be a part of the solution, NewsOne will profile a missing person weekly and provide tips about how to keep your loved ones safe and what to do if someone goes missing.

A Mississippi man shot the owners of a house where he was living in and their children, killing the father and nine-year-old daughter as well as critically wounding the mother and two other children Friday, police said.
The mother and her two children crossed a busy two-lane highway to plead for help from neighbors who were awakened by loud knocking on their door.
“It was like out of a horror movie,” said Donna Davis, 39. “I still see that little girl’s face in my mind.”
Jermaine Sims, 31, and the nine-year-old daughter died later Friday morning. His 29-year-old wife, Victoria, and their 6-year-old son and 14-year-old daughter survived the shooting but were in critical condition, Captain Clint Earls said.

Rihanna (our bestfriend in our head) stars as Gratuity ?Tip? Tucci, the closet representation of a little Black girl on the big screen we?ve seen since Disney?s ?The Princess & The Frog,? as she cruises through the 3D sky with her colorful friend ?Oh? and cat.
?Oh,? a ?Boov? from another planet, helps her find her mother while saving the universe and earning the title of captain.
