BREAKING: Mobile murder victim's 1-year-old daughter missing

MOBILE, Ala (WKRG) - Mobile Police have confirmed one-year old Jay’Maiah Paige Henderson is the daughter of murder victim, 18-year old Jaymarcus Jefferson.  Police have been asking for several days for help finding the toddler. She was last seen in the custody of her paternal grandmother in the area of Delusser St. on Saturday, May 5, 2018 at approximately 7 pm. Police just revealed Wednesday that she is indeed the daughter of the recent murder victim. 

Jaymarcus Jefferson  was shot on April 24th on Driftwood Drive and died from his injuries two days later. 

Jaymarcus' Grandmother Charlotte Jefferson said, "They didn't gain anything from it. Why kill him? Why - there could have been other people in that household harmed too."

Mobile Police have not made any arrests in the shooting.

Charlotte said,  "To know who did it, it's not going to console me, not going to console me one bit, but I would like to know who and why."

Jefferson says his absence makes her Great Granddaughter Jay'maiah Paige Henderson's disappearance more difficult. She went missing the day of Jaymarcus's funeral. Charlotte said, "Knowing her father is gone it's hard - that day to bury him and then turn around and she's missing." 

She said she has no idea what happened, "I was in the inside serving people, so and a lot of the family members were outside. I don't think it was anyone not related."

Charlotte said, her whole family is feeling the pain. She said, "It is really hard on me. Paige and I had just gotten to really know each other and she's the sweetest little thing."

While she thinks Henderson is safe, she begs whoever has her brings her back.

She said, "I'm just asking whoever has Paige - bring her back home. Her mother misses her, I miss her, her Grandfather misses her." 

Mobile Police have not confirmed whether or not his daughter's disappearance is related to the shooting on Driftwood Drive.
