    Found Deceased: Semaj Crosby, 1 year old female, Joliet Township, IL

    Police search for missing baby girl in Will County

    April 26, 2017


    WILL COUNTY, Ill. -- A land and air search is underway this morning for a missing child.

    1-year-old Semaj Crosby was last seen yesterday afternoon on Luana Road and Richards Street in Joliet Township.

    Police say she was playing with a group of kids while a relative was repairing a car. When a relative went to check on Crosby, she was gone.

    Crosby was wearing dark blue jeans, a grey long-sleeve shirt with a cat face on it and white beads in her hair. She was not wearing shoes.

    Search crews have been out all night and now into the morning trying to find her. Right now, police don't suspect foul play.

    I just saw this on my local news, Semaj is 16 months old. They said she was just learning to walk. How far could a baby go? My hinky meter went right off, I hope I am wrong. Saying prayers that Semaj is found safe and soon.

    Beautiful little girl, praying they find her soon! Curious how old the other children she was with are and if they were able to give authorities any information.

    Investigators have been questioning the family, which they said is standard procedure. However, police said there have been conflicting reports from relatives about whether it had been 30 minutes or up to 2 hours before Semaj was reported missing.

    Uh oh, 30 minutes to 2 hours, that sure is big time difference!

    I read in one article that the family searched for Semaj for 2 hours before they called LE.

    IMO, no one knows when this baby wandered off. TBH, I'm not so sure she did...

    Semaj's mother was just on the news, she said Semaj doesn't walk every well yet, she is still wobbly. I just can't see how this baby wandered off as she can barely walk.

    She was crying, she looked distraught. But we all know from experience how some are good actors.

    Either someone snatched her or there's some covering up going on.
    Since nothing has been said about a stranger being around or someone they know was there and then they weren't, I'm leaning toward a cover up of something bad happening to her.
    I just can not believe a wobbly 16 month old baby wandering off on her own so far they haven't found her.

    ETA~ And barefoot!

    I agree with you. If she was barefoot, she would end up sitting and crying because her feet would hurt. Lots of little pebbles and other stuff that would have hurt her feet.

    found Mom's FB but not much on it except lots of pics of numerous kids.

    She looks like a nice lady. I don't see any red flags.

    Maybe she really disappeared and if she did I believe someone saw her and took her. I hope they have searched all SO in the area, hated typing that.

    I read in one article that her parents reported her missing and it daid the dad's name.

    DCFS Investigating Mother Of Missing Baby In Will County

    April 26, 2017 1:47 PM

    CHICAGO (CBS) — As police continue to search for a missing 16-month-old girl near Joliet, the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services said it is investigating her mother for an allegation of neglect.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Her family said they were working on a car outside their home near Luana Road and Richards Street in unincorporated Joliet Township, and Semaj was playing with other children in the back yard, but wandered off.

    So far, a search for Semaj has come up empty.

    Meantime, DCFS said it is investigating Semaj’s mother for neglect, and had visited the home about three hours before the toddler vanished.

    "We have had prior contact with this family including four unfounded investigations for neglect and two prior pending investigation for neglect opened in March 2017. DCFS had been at the home on April 25 at approximately 3:20 p.m. and had seen all three of the mother’s children including Semaj. There were no obvious hazards or safety concerns at that time. DCFS has been working with the family, offering services since September 2016," DCFS spokeswoman Veronica Resa said in an email.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Ugh, I have a feeling I might end up putting mom's trial on the calendar, sure hope I'm wrong.
