Jaliek’s Grandmother Looking for Custody

with 7 comments

The adoptive grandmother of Jaliek Rainwalker says she wants legal custody of the missing 12-year-old boy. Barbara Reeley is the mother of Jocelyn McDonald, who is Jaliek’s adoptive mother. She says the search for Jaliek is being held up by McDonald and her husband Stephen Kerr, because they have custody of him and she feels they are not doing enough to look for Jaliek.

Jaliek was last seen in November with Kerr, who has been named a person of interest in the case, but not charged.  Barbara Reeley, Jaliek’s Grandmother says, “It would only benefit Steven if Jaliek were found, it would only benefit him, unless he harmed him. I really want Jaliek to know that I love him, his grandfather loves him, many people love him, and he would have a welcome home on the slight chance he’s alive.” If she gets custody, Reeley will have access to Jaliek’s records, something she feels with help with the investigation.

  4. I do hope that Barbara gets custody of Jaliek. What a strong-willed woman with so much heart. I believe with her fortitude and persistence, the truth will come out and what happened to Jaliek will be known. If Stephen Kerr did have anything to do with Jaliek’s disappearance, I hope that justice will be served.

    Thanks for the blog and for your continuing dedication to this case.

  5. I also truly hope Barbara gets custody of Jaliek. I really think if she gets custody then altmore things would begin happening in Jaliek’s case.
