A mentally-challenged teenager who vanished for nearly 10 days is found alive on the South Side.

The 19 year-old girl was discovered at 107th and Prairie around 7am Wednesday. Her mother and community activist Andrew Holmes found her, thanks to a tip she received.

“Gory to God,” said the teen’s mother.

“I just want to say, ‘thank you all for helping me find my child,'” she added.

The girl was last seen at her home at 93rd and Elizabeth.

The victim is being treated at “Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park.”

No arrests have been made.

      She appeared to have been beaten and was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

    Evil, uncaring and self consuming individuals committed this unthinkable act upon a challenged beautiful girl. How do they look at themselves in a mirror? Dogs!!!

  • are you kidding me?

    Disgusting. These guys are worthless animals and I truly hope they get what's coming to them. MISERY cause it's what they deserve.

    Where's Jesse and al with the outrage for this child . Oh wait it's black on black crime. They won't benefit from this . Why is the black community not outraged about this. That's right it's one of there own

      As a member of the black community I am outraged about this. I am outraged whenever harm is done to a child of any race. I think the majority of people of all races are outraged when a child is harmed. What an ignorant statement for you to make.

        Only the truth if it mattered to them they would be outraged. Not a peep from them. No national news event no need for. Jesse or. Al bro come out

  • Sick

    Why was the video only taken down because it was linked to Jessica? Why was it ok to be up if it wasn't her?? Sick sick sick.

    • Sorry

      FBI only can be involved if it is a federal crime. If this proves to be a a crime that is governed by state law, FBI is not involved. If this proves to be a hate crime (one race against another) FBI would become involved. Black on black crime does not constitute a federal crime.

    The brutality is beyond comprehension, the ONLY upside is that she is still alive. And since the CPD resolution of crimes is at an all time low, snitching on these animals, whoever knows anything, shouldn't take a second thought to do what is right.

    This is an AWFUL, AWFUL thing to happen to this young woman. I truly hope she's able to recover. BUT, I'll bet it WAS NOT done by WHITE'S AGAINST A BLACK PERSON,,,,,,,, WHY? Because THAT WAS NOT STATED IN THE NEWS REPORT ! BE FAIR… STATE THE RACE THESE OF CRIMINALS. It was done in FL. Keep it even.
