Although African Americans make up just 13 percent of the U.S. population, we account for 33 percent of the missing in the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s database. Cases involving African Americans also tend to receive less media coverage than missing Whites, with missing men of color getting even less attention.

NewsOne has partnered with the Black and Missing Foundation and TV One to focus on the crisis of missing African Americans.

To be a part of the solution, NewsOne will profile a missing person weekly and provide tips about how to keep your loved ones safe and what to do if someone goes missing, while TV One‘s newest show, “Find Our Missing,” hosted by award-winning actress S. Epatha Merkerson, tells these stories in visual form. “Find Our Missing” airs on TV One on Wednesdays.

Black men make up approximately 14 percent of the listed missing persons cases for people under 18. When it comes to those 18 and older, they make up 16 percent. Yet, Black men get even less media attention than missing black women. Let’s change that. If you’ve seen Brandon Jacobi Johnson, please contact the Black and Missing Foundation’s tip line.
