Have you received this email recently about the missing 3 year old named Jewel Strong?
Missing 3 year Old Girl
You never know, who knows whom
Another child missing.
Please forward to everyone you know.
Her family needs your help finding her.
The email has been circulating for about 3 years now, beginning in 2006. It’s not a complete hoax, little Jewel Strong (pictured above) was actually missing but not as the result of an abduction or runaway. The Jonesboro tot, who was 3 years old in 2006, was vacationing along with her family in Panama City Beach. The child and her 18 year old aunt were playing in a float in the water and were caught in strong currents. Rescuers were able to rescue the aunt, but the 3 year old was swept under the water and could not be found.
Over the course of several weeks, rescuers conducted an intensive search of the child by boat, divers and helicopter. Sadly they turned up nothing. Little Jewel’s distraught parents held out hope that she was alive and well somewhere but all signs point to the small child drowning and being swept away by the strong currents.
It’s a sad sad story that has developed over the course of these three years. The parents refused to give up hope and went through hell and high water to find their child. I did a lil internet research and compiled what’s been going on with the case all these years. If you got that email again today and are interested in Jewel’s story check it out below:
