Missing Arizona Girl Jahessye Shockley's Family Demands Attention


Police will not discuss the criminal histories of either of Jahessye's parents, but did acknowledge that they do have criminal backgrounds that have been publicized.

"We're not discussing any criminal history," Coombs said. "The investigators were aware of all the family's background pretty immediately. It's not the first or last time we've dealt with family members of victims who have criminal history, but we still need to look at the big picture and not be tunnel-visioned."

Police said they have followed up on "hundreds" of leads but have not named any suspects or persons of interest.

Searches have included scent dogs, aircrafts and extensive ground searches.

"Everyone is a person of interest," Coombs said. "The extremely observable efforts that went on in the first 50 hours or more are less observable now, but more things are going on behind the scenes."
