Disabled Boy Missing
A young disabled black boy, Adji Desir, has been missing for more than two years and his case remains unsolved. Please help us get the word out by distributing this story widely.
Adji Desir has been missing from outside his grandmother’s residence in Immokalee, Florida, since Saturday, January 10, 2009. Adji reportedly went outside to play with neighborhood kids after dinner. He was reported missing a little while later and his whereabouts remain unknown. Adji is of Haitian descent and was last seen wearing a blue and yellow t-shirt, blue and yellow shorts, and black and gray sneakers. He is mentally handicapped and functions at a two-year-old level. He is non-verbal, has a very limited vocabulary, and only understands Creole.
Because of the length of time Adji has been missing, an aged-progressed picture (e.g. in green shirt) and an original photo of him back are provided.
This little boy lived with his mother and stepfather at the time he disappeared. Authorities searched the immediate area and found no clues and while his biological father resides in Haiti, no evidence suggests he has left the United States. None of Desir’s family members are considered suspects. But the case has grown cold and no new leads have surfaced, so that’s why spreading Adji’s image around the web may help yield more clues.
The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to his recovery. Anyone with any information is urged to call the Collier County Sheriff’s Office at 239-774-4434 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS.
