HOMER, LA (11/21/19)– Rondriez Phillips Junior turned six years old on November 21st. However, family and friends are having to celebrate without him as his disappearance happened over a year ago.

“I need closure. I need some answers. I don’t know what happened. I wish I knew,” said Shelia Phillips, Junior’s Mother.
It’s been over a year and a half since Rondriez Phillips Junior was last seen in his front yard. To this day, his disappearance still remains a mystery.
“Casuse I know he would ask questions, “Momma why didn’t you come look for me, Momma why didn’t you come get me?” said Phillips.
Junior’s mother and hundreds in the community haven’t lost faith and continue to look for him.
“I was out in the woods one day. I was out whacking the weeds with my machete to help look for him,” said Dakota Foster, Helped look for Junior.
“I’m not going to stop until I find out the truth,” said Phillips.

Although time has passed, the search for Junior continues. Even for people who don’t know the family. A stranger posted on facebook he would give a $4,000 reward if junior is returned to his family.
“Ain’t nobody going to go to the police with no information, but people in that area know me. See if anybody comes to me with any information about this child,” said Kieth Johnson, Offering reward for Junior’s return.
