It's been almost a month since 27-year old Jerome Ezell disappeared, but the family has not lost hope in finding him and getting him home to his children for Christmas.
The Lansing Township Police Department are still searching for Jerome and trying to piece together the clues on what happened when he was reported missing Tuesday, November 7, 2017. He was last seen in the 500 block of S. Clemens Ave. in Lansing.
His girlfriend Jasmine HIll says he was suppose to drop off their son to daycare, but she was told he never did. She became suspicious after not receiving any text messages or calls from him. That's when she tracked down the vehicle he was in and found it in the 1100 Block of North Fairview. Inside of the car was her 5-month old son strapped in the car seat, but Jerome was gone.
Police are suspecting no foul play but the family is saying otherwise and couldn't understand why Jerome would vanish and leave his son alone in the car without leaving any indication of where he was going and why. The family has started a Go Fund Me account to hire a private investigator to search for Jerome and are offering a $10,000 reward for any information that can lead to his location.
News Ten Joe Sam talked with his girlfriend, Jasmine HIll about why it's so important to find him before Christmas arrives. You'll hear her story tonight at 6 p.m. on WILX.
