PHOENIX cops have arrested and charged the mother of a missing girl with child abuse. Jerice Hunter was arrested on child abuse charges "directly related to [her missing 5-year-old daughter] Jhessye," Glendale Police Sgt. Brent Coombs said. Jhessye (JES'-ee) Shockley has been missing since Oct. 11 when she vanished from her Phoenix apartment. Coombs said Monday detectives don't believe they'll find the girl alive and that Hunter "is our No. 1 focus." Hunter's apartment was surrounded by police tape Monday as investigators
in white jumpsuits searched inside. Police declined to say what investigators were doing. So far it's been all dead ends: Cops say Jhessye wandered from her Glendale apartment while Hunter was running an errand; the girl's three older siblings were the last to see her. Worst of all Police no evidence, suspects or promising leads. The headcase mom, however, has a history of child abuse. MORE FROM FOX NEWS
