MISSING! Parents desperate for help in finding teen daughter who vanished while walking dogs

Two Tennessee parents are asking for the public’s help in locating their 16-year-old daughter, who was reportedly last seen walking her dogs outside her Bartlett home on November 25.

Shemickco Frazier told WHBQ that her daughter, Johniah Frazier, 16, doesn’t have a history of running away. WATN reported that Johniah took her three dogs to the front yard at about 8 p.m.; the dogs were later found crying to come in with no sign of the teen.

The local news station noted that the teen’s parents are truck drivers and were en route home when Johniah disappeared. They claimed their daughter didn’t have a boyfriend and that they monitored her online activity to the best of their ability.

“I’m going to all these hotel stops any area that looks bad I’m running through. Also, the worst fear checking behind garbage cans and make sure there’s nothing,” Johniah’s father, John Frazier, told WATN.

Alarmingly, WHBQ noted that Johniah is one of three teen girl from the Mid-South who’s disappeared in recent weeks. Like Johniah, the two other girls remain missing. The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that they’ve launched a runaway investigation but aren’t dismissing any information that could help locate the teen.

“I don’t know what to feel, I feel cold,” Johniah’s mother said.

“I just wish my baby would come back.”

This is an ongoing case. Anyone with information regarding Johniah Frazier’s whereabouts can call the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office’s Special Victim’s Unit at 901-222-5500.
