(MPN) – Jerry Walker, the 11-year-old who went missing on May 9th of this year, “has likely been sighted in Oakland and Hayward, California,” according to a Law Enforcement official on the case who spoke with MPN this morning. The official stressed that Jerry Walker’s case is very much an “open and active investigation”.
Jerry Walker was last seen around 6:45pm on the 9th at Greater New Beginnings Group Home, 1625 Filbert Street, in Oakland, CA. Details of why Jerry was living there have not been released due to privacy issues; however, due to his age, he is considered “a missing person at risk.”
Jerry is African-American, 4’9? tall, weighing approximately 90 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes, and was last seen wearing a black sweatshirt and blue jeans.
Several advocates have expressed frustration recently at the lack of activity surrounding Jerry’s case. It appears that he has been entered into the NCIC Crime Database, but not into the NCMEC’s missing children’s database or into NamUS. The Law Enforcement official we spoke with earlier today indicated he would approve any request for Walker to be entered into the appropriate missing persons’ databases.
Anyone with information regarding Jerry Walker’s whereabouts should immediately call 911 or contact the Oakland Police Department Youth and Family Services Division at (510) 238-3641.
