$35,000 Award for Phylicia Barnes

Missing Without A Trace: 8 Days of Horror
“I can only vision your presence to be bright, although the valley you're in seems with an abundance of darkness, just hold on baby,” a poem by Janice Sallis, Phylicia’s mother. “I will be waiting for you to get home my beautiful sweet Phylicia Simone."
According to a story posted January 28th, it's been a month since 17-year-old Phylicia Barnes was last seen.  Phylicia attended Union Academy in Monroe before she was reported missing in Baltimore in December 2010. The public charter school announced a $25,000 reward for information that leads to her safe return home. Everyone is hoping the new reward will help bring her home.  Missing Without A Trace: 8 Days of Horror
Baltimore police announced an additional $10,000 added to the reward, coming from Baltimore neighbors. Phylicia  was visiting her sister for Christmas vacation in Baltimore, MD  when she vanished. Police have questioned several men who were said to be in and out of where she was staying. That includes her half-sister’s ex-boyfriend who, police say, was the last person to see the 17-year-old.
