    Post Very sad

    Rachel lived just north of Balboa park. It is surrounded with homes but there are many areas that are left natural and are very rugged especially around the park and zoo. The canyons are deep also.

    I sure hope they find him.

    Default Missing toddler wasn't at park, police conclude

    Missing toddler wasn't at park, police conclude

    Boy's fingerprints weren't found on playground gear



    By Kelly Thornton and Chet Barfield
    STAFF WRITERS

    May 2, 2002

    San Diego police have concluded that 2-year-old Jahi Turner and his stepfather did not visit a Balboa Park playground the day the stepfather reported the child missing.

    Police have discounted the story of the stepfather, Tieray Jones, because of inconsistencies in his account of what happened and because results of a lie-detector test indicated deception by Jones, said county law enforcement sources familiar with the case.

    Jones, 23, told police he left Jahi in the play area at 28th and Cedar streets last Thursday while he walked to a soda machine 100 yards away, then returned 15 minutes later to find the toddler gone. Police classified the case as an abduction.

    However, evidence technicians found no fingerprints from Jahi on the playground equipment, such as swings or the slide, indicating the boy likely had not played there recently, sources said. Criminalists lifted Jahi's fingerprints from inside the family's Golden Hill apartment for comparison, the sources said.

    Default Reward now offered

    There is now a $10,000 reward being offered for the safe return of Jahi.


    In another development, a retired Navy master chief from Rancho Bernardo offered a $10,000 reward "for the safe return of Jahi Turner to his family."

    The 48-year-old donor, David Curry, said he is not a deep-pocket philanthropist but was moved by the family's ordeal.

    "Being a father and being in the Navy, I could not even imagine what it would be like to lose a kid that way," he said.

    Bravo Mr. Curry!

    Post AMW

    Jahi got a 30 second mention on America's Most Wanted last Saturday night. Picture only with JW stated the facts of his disappearance.

    Default My guess...

    ...is that a neighbor or someone saw the stepdad take a suitcase or ice chest out of the apartment, and that item is missing now. Which would explain what they were looking for with heavy equipment at the landfill. It wasn't just a tiny body.

    No one to root for in this case, except little Jahi.

    Jahi Turner is still missing. Sadly, the search has been called off because the family doesn't have the funds to make sure it continues nor post a reward evidently.
