URGENT: FBI joins search for missing Virginia teen Jholie Moussa as mother records desperate video plea

The FBI has joined the desperate search for 16-year-old Jholie Moussa, last seen on Friday, January 12, in Alexandria, Virginia.

Moussa’s mother Syreeta Hill told Fox 5 that Moussa told her twin sister she was going to a party in Norfolk, and left home at around 4:15 p.m.

But police reportedly could not corroborate the report of Moussa having gone to Norfolk, and told the news station that not all of the nearly two dozen of Jhoulie’s friends they have interviewed are cooperating.

Police reportedly said they do not believe Moussa is in danger, but the report did not explain whey believe this, and have reportedly declined to issue an AMBER alert.

Moussa’s mother told the news station she does not believe her daughter would have run away, and posted a video on a Facebook page devoted to the search for her daughter, pleading with anyone who might have taken her to please let her go. She said in the video that she did not believe her daughter left voluntarily, but said that if she did she would not be in any trouble, and begged her to come home.

Jholie Moussa was last seen wearing blue jeans, a black coat with a fur collar, plaid shirt, and UGG boots. She is 5’2″ and weighs about 102 pounds. She is black and has long blond braids, and an infinity tattoo bearing her and her twin sister’s name.

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