D.C. police are enlisting the help of the public to try to find a 14-year-old black girl who went missing Friday.

Robin Moore, the 14-year-old girl, was last seen on the 1700 block of Q Street in Southeast, Washington, D.C.

The D.C. police poster on Moore lists her as a black female with a height of 5’1″ and a weight of 105 pounds. She has dark brown eyes and black hair.

At the time she went missing, Moore was wearing a black hoodie and blue sneakers. Missing children in D.C. has become an issue that has recently generated an untoward amount of hysteria.

After D.C. police began utilizing social media more to put out alerts about missing children, certain members of the public got the mistaken impression that the number of cases of missing children was exploding. The hysteria reached such heights that black lawmakers sent a letter to the FBI and Department of Justice calling for an investigation.

In reality, the number of missing children has actually declined from 2015 to 2016: 2,433 cases to 2,242.

Moreover, police have insisted that human trafficking has played no part in the disappearance of children in 2017.

Police Commander Chanel Dickerson recently stated that many of these missing children are actually living in the homes of other adults. Dickerson urged that adults should not let other children stay in their home without the approval of their parents. Dickerson also recommended that adults call the police if they see children wandering around outside during school hours.
