Police ask for help in search for teen who disappeared on the way to school
A teenager in South Carolina has gone missing on his way to school. His family has recently doubled the reward for anyone who can give them information on his whereabouts.
The missing 18-year-old male is Malik Spencer. He was last seen leaving home to go to school. His family has now set the reward at $2000.
Malik’s mother, Michelle, left for work around the same time that he left for school. However, he never attended school or his part-time job that day.

Malik attends Whale Branch High School where he is a senior. In keeping with police protocol, he was declared missing 24 hours after his mother last saw him.
The police’s only success in this case so far has been finding Malik’s car abandoned in a rural area. They are continuing to search for the young man himself.
Unfortunately, Malik is not the only missing person. An Amber Alert was launched last month after two siblings went missing in San Jose.
The two children are Priscilla Penaloza who is 11 years old and her one-year-old brother Alexander. There are suspicions that their mother abducted them, as the children were in Child Protective Services.

Their mother had lost custody of them due to an anonymous report that the family was living out of a car. She has always been against her children being in protective custody.
Police are on the lookout for her and her car, a grey 2012 model Mini Cooper Sedan with license plate 6UWL251. It is likely that she is heading towards Colorado Springs.
I don't always trust the state or custody battles as there is corruption. I pray for the situation to be better and safe for them all including the mother who must be in pain over losing her own children. Let it be worked out legally and justly.🙏— Alysa and Kids (@alysaandkids) November 4, 2018
BRING JAYME HOME
In October this year, a 13-year-old girl named Jayme Closs disappeared. The local courthouse in Barron County has put up a special Christmas tree to give her family hope that she will be found in time for the holidays.
Each member of the courthouse’s staff contributed ideas towards how the tree should be decorated, and it is topped off with a ribbon that says “prayers for Jayme.”
Jayme’s parents were killed in a shooting at their home and Jayme was there when it happened. She has been missing since the incident took place.
