R’Kayla’s parents said the 11-year-old packed her bags and left the house on Monday. She deleted her social media accounts and did not answer the phone.
At first, her parents thought she was going to Texas with a 22-year-old man. Investigators said Friday she may have been with a man or woman who is still in Georgia.
“Bring her back. We’re asking you to bring her back because we’re not going to stop,” parent Kenicia Moss said.
Moss told Jones she thought her daughter met someone on Instagram.
“Parents, we encourage you. Check the phone. Check the Internet. You never know,” she said.
The child’s mother, Brandy Mosely, told Jones on Friday that her daughter had been sent home by two men. The police confirmed that was the case. Mosley briefly took his daughter to police headquarters on Friday afternoon.
Jones was there when Mom ran into the house. She has nothing to say. But a few days ago, she begged her daughter to come home. “We love you, girl. Come home. You know we love you. There’s a village behind you. A whole village. Please come home,” her mother said.
When Mosley emerged from the police station on Friday night, she said nothing. But on the phone, she told Jones that God was at work and that she was a believer in him.
