The Disapppearance of Tawney Reed

May 1, 2019 was the last time Tawney Reed was seen. She is yet another Black girl who has such little media coverage regarding her disappearance... but here is what we can find regarding her.  Tawney Reed is a 14 year-old African American girl from Reno, Nevada (or at least that is where she is missing from). She is 5'0" tall and approximately 130 pounds.  Authorities haven't released what she was wearing, what she was doing the day she disappeared, or what they think may have happened.  If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Tawney Reed, please call the Reno Police Department at 775-334-2121.

The Disappearance of Keaisha Hayes-Prater

Sometime in the summer of 2019 was the last time 13 year-old Keaisha Hayes-Prater was seen. Very little information is out there regarding her disappearance due to the lack of media coverage for people of color .  Keaisha is a 13 year-old African American girl who stands 5'0" and weighs approximately 130 pounds. The brown haired, brown eyed teen is listed with a date missing as May 3, July 25, and August 23, 2019 from 3 different sources. Columbus, Ohio Police believe that she may still be in the area, but have no theories as to what happened to Keaisha.  I was unable to find ANY other information regarding her disappearance. There is a large disparity in the coverage of cases of missing and murdered women of color in the media.  We need to highlight these cases and continue to bring awareness to them. If you have a case that fits into this category, please send me an email at  and I will make a post regarding it no matter how little information
