On Tuesday, June 16, 2009, a relative from Hobart, Indiana took a short trip with toddler Jada Justice, to get milk at a gas station mini-mart in Gary, Indiana at Ridge Road and Louisiana Street. The relative, who was caring for Jada for about one week, entered the store for only minutes according to a report filed with Gary Police Department. When the relative (a cousin) returned after a few minutes in the Glen Park Gas Station at 1401 East Ridge Road in Gary, Jada was missing. Jada Justice was last seen sitting in a car seat in the relative’s parked car at the gas station convenient mart. The car seat remained in the back seat.

Jada Justice is described as a black female, 3 years-old in August 2009, 2′ 2″ tall and weighing 35 to 50 pounds. Jada was last seen wearing an orange skirt, white tank top with orange and green stripes, and white sandals. Exact time of occurrence is unknown, but a police report was filed about 9:30 p.m.
