Maurice Jefferson case gets attention

According to this South Florida Sun-Sentinel article, Maurice Jefferson‘s disappearance is being made into a documentary. The sixteen-year-old, red-haired black kid disappeared without a trace, and for no apparent reason, from Fort Lauderdale in 1983.

I’m so glad this case is getting some press. Missing black kids, especially black male teenagers, are very inadequately covered in the media. In fact, I don’t recall a single case of a black teen disappearing and getting more than one or two short articles. And Maurice has been missing for way too long.

Let’s hope this documentary yields fruit, in the form of information from the public about his case. Another article:
