Daughter of missing River Rouge mother of four makes passionate plea for help finding her | News
A mother of four is missing and a big push is being made to locate her, including pleas made by her daughter, mother and brother.
Jennifer Blackmon, 35, has been missing since Dec.22 just before 8 p.m. in the 400 block of Polk Street.
She last spoke with her father about having her car repaired, then borrowed a car to run some errands.
Her family said they received a call from someone she was supposed to meet with on business, who said she was “a no-show.”
The family searched every place they knew she frequented and then filled a missing person’s report.
She is black, 5 foot 5 inches and has hazel eyes. She also has a scar near her bottom lip.
Blackmon’s mother spoke at a recent Crime Stoppers press conference and said she keeps waiting for her daughter to come home.
She has to field some pretty difficult questions from her daughter’s children who want to know if she will go out and find their mother.
Amonte’ Hamer is one of Blackmon’s children and made a passionate plea for her mother’s safe return.
“It hurts,” Hamer said. “It hurts really bad and I never expected to go through anything like this. Sometimes I just don’t know what to do. I feel like I’m lost without her because I really do need her. I shouldn’t have to worry every night, wondering if my mom is ok or not.”
Blackmon’s oldest child is about to graduate from school and her youngest just celebrated a fourth birthday.
A friend of Blackmon said it unimaginable what her children are going through and the questions they are asking.
The family friend said it’s impossible to start the healing process until they know what happened to her friend and asked people at home to speak up and tell what they know about Blackmon’s disappearance.
“The truth is out there,” Aaron Hamer, Blackmon’s brother, said. “It’s time for some action now, and it’s not over with yet.”
Amonte Hamer pleaded with someone to come forward, saying that it hurts every night having to go to sleep or even wake up knowing that her mother is not here.
“I’m not able to talk to her like I should be able to,” her daughter said.
Crime Stoppers of Michigan is offering a cash reward of up to $2,500 for any information leading to the location of Blackmon.
