12-year-old hearing impaired girl goes missing

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A 12-year-old hearing impaired girl has been missing since Thursday afternoon. Jamiya Henderson attends Miles Elementary.

She got in trouble at school Thursday and was going to be suspended Friday and Monday.

Her mom, Arquita Barrett, says Jamiya normally takes the school bus to their home on E. 136th Street, but she apparently decided to walk home Thursday.

When she didn't return by 4:30 p.m. the family started driving around looking for her.

A friend told the family she saw Jamiya walking on E. 131st towards Harvard, with a group of young boys.

The family was unable to find her and called police around 7 p.m.
