Police Investigating in Atlanta to Find Amir Jennings
Thursday, January 5, 2012

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Columbia police say the investigation into the whereabouts of 18 month old Amir Jennings has taken them to Atlanta.

Columbia police the last time the mother and son were seen together was in Atlanta, where the mother has extended family.

"She has other family members in Atlanta, she has lived there at some point," said Police Chief Randy Scott.

"I don't know the extent to how long she lived in Atlanta but what I do know is we've been able to confirm that she has been in Atlanta with Amir. The issue that we have is we don't know from that point in Atlanta where Amir is at this time."

Columbia police have contacted and are working with police in Atlanta.

"The one thing we try to rely on above all else is the information the mother of the child will give us," said Scott. "That's the problem. The mother of Amir, Zeina, is not being factual with investigators and that raises our concerns."

Stories the mother has given to investigators haven't checked out.

"It's troublesome but at the same time we've seen cases where the child was missing much longer and was safely recovered," said Hugh Munn who works at USC and helps law enforcement find missing children. "If you've seen something or know something, don't hold it back because you think it's inconsequential or of no use. That might be the very bit of information they need."

Police are pleading for any and all tips in an effort to bring Amir Jennings home.

"If you've seen Zeina, if you've seen Amir, could have been a month ago, we need to know about it," said Scott.
