Janteyl Johnson vanished five years ago today. Sadly, there are no suspects in her disappearance, no arrests, and no concrete evidence as to what may have happened to the teen and her baby.
Janteyl now falls into the category of what the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children refers to as long-term missing. As with any missing child case, the more time that goes by the more difficult it is to solve. While that may be true, the NCMEC also reminds us that these most difficult of cases can be solved---Carlina White, Jaycee Dugard, Shawn Hornbeck, Michelle Knight, Gina DeJesus and Amanda Berry, are just a few examples of long-term missing kids who were eventually reunited with their families.
When it comes to Janteyl Johnson, the reality is that someone knows what happened to her. Remember, people don't just disappear. Someone has the information the New Castle County Police need to solve this case. It's about time that person came forward.
