9-year-old Rasheeyda and her friend were playing on the fire escape of a San Diego, California apartment building on July 15, 1991. The building superintendent told Rasheeyda and her friend to get off the fire escape because it was unsafe. The girls left the area and parted ways, and Rasheeyda said she was going to downtown San Diego. She never made it back home and hasn't been seen since.
Rasheeyda lived with her mother and sister in a residental hotel across the street from the apartment building she was at. Rasheeyda vanished once before her disappearance, but was found safely. Rasheeyda is described as a streetwise kid, but police believe there's foul play in her disapperance. Rasheeyda was wearing a white shirt with pink & green shoulder pads, blue jeans, white saddle shoes, and a gold chain with a cross on it on the day of her disappearance. She has three scars on her front right calf, her upper front teeth protrude, and her hair was worn in cornrow braids at the time of her disapperance.
