According to CBS Chicago, a 9-year-old boy was reported missing Tuesday night, after he didn’t come home from school. Police and relatives spent the night searching for Michael Campbell.

Michael lives about a block away from his Elementary School and was supposed to arrive home shortly after school ended Tuesday at 3 p.m. His mother reportedly called police at 8:40 p.m. when he still hadn’t made it home.

CBS reports, police have been using spotlights and other equipment to search alleys and yards in the area. Some of Michael’s belongings were found in an alley, but there was no sign of the boy.

His mother said he usually gets home from school no later than 4:15 p.m. When he didn’t show up, his family thought maybe he received a detention, or stopped at a friend’s house.

When Michael didn’t show up by 4:45 p.m., they began to search for him themselves, and when when they couldn’t find him, they called 911.

“Mikey, try to find some way to get in contact with your parents; your mom, your dad, somebody, anybody. Baby, please, please come home,” said his mother, Elmarita Fletcher.

His parents have reportedly been up all night, trying to track down their missing son, to no avail.

“I’ve checked everything that I had to check. My family, my mother, my sister. That’s the only place that he go,” Fletcher said.

Michael’s aunt, Allison Campbell, told CBS it is unlike Michael to not come home from school.

“He’s only 9 years old. He’s not the type of kid that strays away from home, and comes home later in the day. He’s not that type of kid,” she said.

Michael was reportedly last seen wearing a maroon jacket, maroon shirt, black pants, and orange and black Nike sneakers.

    Why doesn’t the moderator delete the posts that have nothing to to with the news story? All the work from home and arguing over have distract from the real issue at hand which is a missing child

  2. Angela Matthews on said:

    The article shows the boy only being about 15 minutes late when the family got worried. As a kid who walked 9 blocks to school and 9 blocks back, that is not so much. I think they did a good job in both reporting and care for the boy.

    Somebody needs to commission a study that measures the long term affect of wearing weave on black women, psychologically and physically. I postulate that the chemicals and adhesives are broken down by the heat of the scalp and entering the bloodstream of these Hair Hats. NAACP or Shaun Talcum X King, step up and do something productive for our Peeps

God bless

    Family thought he may have received detention. Very telling. Meanwhile Shaun King, ala Talcum X, has offered a reward for a white man driving a red pick-up near the school.

LORD PLEASE BE WITH HIM♥️

      He should have been home by 4:15, baby mama doesn’t call police until 4 1/2 hours later? FOR A 10 y/o old? WTF? Police need to be checking her story out. Mac will keep drilling this home until it hits, black women are the worst stewards of life in the sector of our galaxy

      • this isn’t isnt the time to comment racial things. One thing about an African American family, you can’t go straight to the police because half of the time they do not care nor do they try. So sometimes you have to take it into your own hands and then they’re your second choice. You don’t need to be commenting if you’re only going to be negative. It’s a 9 year old boy who’s mother is in complete fear. Have respect.

      • Mac, I am a black woman. A very proud one too.and your comments only shows me that a black woman hurt you in some way, but that has nothing to do with any of us. You are in no way authorized to define a person’s parenting skills, especially since you are not the bread winner of that family.
        No one parent is perfect, everyone makes mistakes. There are no handbooks given when a woman gives birth to a child, hence you…
        These people were scared ,hurt, and now thankful that they found their child, rejoice with themy or shut up.
        The law on missing persons report is 24 hrs, so so even though you make a report to the police, you still have a wait period. Seems you must be illiterate. .foolish, or just have a head full of hot air. I would not even reply to people like you normally, but you are picking on my black sisters, and we stand together when necessary.
        So gfuck off, and harass someone else, before we find you..
