Mocobizscene-The Crenshaw County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that they have found the teenager who went missing from the Brantley area on Tuesday morning. Additionally, they have apprehended another individual for questioning regarding the disappearance of the teen.
Jasmine McMeans, a 16-year-old girl, was found in Montgomery on Tuesday morning after she went missing from the Carter Road area in Brantley and failed to come back. The Montgomery Police Department detained Rasheed Blake, a 22-year-old individual, as a person of interest in the case and is currently questioning him.
Sheriff’s Lieutenant Chris Stewart suspects that Blake picked up McMeans in Brantley. They managed to locate and detain him at a hotel in Montgomery.
Deputy Justin Wood from Crenshaw County played a crucial role in assisting us during this challenging situation. He worked closely with the Montgomery PD and successfully located the man we suspect to have picked her up in Brantley. However, it is important to note that the individual in question is also being investigated by Montgomery detectives for unrelated allegations, which may involve an incident that occurred a few weeks ago.
After being questioned in Montgomery, Blake will either be released to the Crenshaw County Sheriff’s Office or held to face charges related to McMeans’s disappearance. Stewart confirmed that a warrant will be issued for Blake on charges of interfering with custody.
Stewart stated that the current situation is still being investigated and there is a possibility of additional charges in the future.
McMeans, a young African American woman, has brown eyes and black hair. She is 5-foot-five tall and weighs 150 pounds. The Crenshaw County Sheriff’s Office reached out to the community for assistance in locating her when she went missing.
The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) has issued an Emergency Missing Child Alert via its Alabama Fusion Center on Tuesday morning. Although the circumstances surrounding the incident did not meet the criteria for an Amber Alert, the Sheriff’s Office expressed gratitude to the community members for their concern.
In a social media post, department representatives expressed their gratitude for the invaluable involvement of the community in such situations. They acknowledged the concern and active participation of individuals in ensuring the safety of the community, particularly in cases involving missing persons.
