Jenny Nkwah, described as being 5 feet, 3 inches tall, with brown eyes and black hair, has been reported missing in the past, but has returned to her home previously, police said.

“It looks like she’s more of a runaway … but that’s still considered a missing person,” police said on Monday. No Amber Alert has been issued.
Despite sporadic contact with her family, her current whereabouts remain unknown, police said. She has been seen in Dorchester, Roxbury, Mattapan, and, most recently, Hyde Park, police said.
While it is unknown for sure, many aspects of Jenny's disappearance fit the profile of a teen groomed into human trafficking for Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC). Many groomed and trafficked victims are often classified as "runaways."
