BREAKING: Body found near home of missing girl, Jholie Moussa

Virginia authorities reported on Fri. they found a body in Fairfax County, close to the area a missing teen girl was last seen.

A tweet provided by the Fairfax County Police on Fri. afternoon indicated that they found a “juvenile” body off of the 4800 block of Manor Drive in Lower Alexandria. Police cordoned off the area with crime scene tape and homicide investigators are on the scene. No other information will be released about the body until parental consent is granted. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Manassas is working on identification.

The  crime scene is close to where 16-year-old missing teen Jholie Moussa was last seen. As CrimeOnline previously reported, Jholie disappeared on Friday, Jan. 12. According to the teen’s mother, Syreeta Hill, her daughter left home that day at around 4:15 p.m. with her sister, headed to a party in Norfolk.

Earlier this month, police indicated that they didn’t feel Jholie was in danger and declined to issue an AMBER Alert, despite Hill’s insistence that Jholie would never run away. The worried mother posted a Facebook video on Jan. 16, pleading for her daughter’s safe return.

“I can’t get an AMBER Alert! And I know this is not my daughter’s personality. She’s never late. I know these things about her. I know my child, so please, I beg you, please…anyone with any information, you don’t have to call me and tell me who you are….I just want my baby back.”

Until the body is identified, police are treating Jholie as a missing person. She was last seen wearing blue jeans, a black coat with a fur collar, a plaid shirt, and UGG boots. She is 5’2″ and weighs about 102 pounds. She is black, has long blond braids, and an infinity tattoo bearing her and her twin sister’s name.

Anyone with information on Jholie’s whereabouts should contact Alexandria police at 703-691-2131, the FBI Washington Field Office at 202-278-2000 or at https://tips.fbi.gov.

The story is still developing. Check back with CrimeOnline as additional details become available.
