Mom searching for runaway daughter

The mother of a 15-year-old runaway, who allegedly left to meet a man in Mobile that she met on the Internet, is asking for the public’s help in bringing her daughter home.

Jazzman Berry was last seen Thursday when her mother, Tracey, dropped her off at Andalusia High School. It is believed that Berry did not report to class and left the school campus.

“I was told that her principal confiscated a phone that Jazzman had borrowed from a classmate, and she’d been texting a gentleman,” Berry said. “It said she was supposed to be in Opp at a hotel. The man’s name is ‘Mike,’ and they’re supposed to be headed to Mobile.”

Berry, who is 5’6” and weighs approximately 165 pounds, was last seen wearing blue jeans, black Polo snow boots, a white shirt and a black jacket with fur around the rim of the hood. She has shoulder-length black hair with pink highlights.

This is the second time the girl has run away from home to meet a man she met on the Internet, her mother said. She was later found in Ramer on Dec. 28, 2010. She’d been gone 20 days.

Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of Jazzman Berry can contact the Andalusia Police Department at 222-1155.
