17-year-old Melissa Collins and her 7-month-old daughter, Jasmine were last seen leaving their Akron, Ohio apartment on August 8, 1991, walking to a grocery store. Melissa didn't have any cash or supplies for both her and her daughter, and had no plans to travel anywhere. The two haven't been seen since. The last person who has claimed to see Melissa and Jasmine was a man, Raymond "Sweet Pea" Smith, who was staying with a woman that sublet her apartment to Melissa & her daughter at the time. Smith claims that Melissa and Jasmine left for the grocery store around 7:30pm and he left after they had departed.
2 or 3 days later after Melissa and Jasmine went missing, Smith came back to the apartment, wearing bloody clothes. He was never charged in the Collins case, plus Smith had a history of mental disease and drug addiction. He committed suicide a year later in 1992. Foul play is suspected in Melissa and Jasmine's cases due to the circumstances involved. Jasmine has asthma and requires medical attention to treat her. Melissa has a scar on her upper right arm, she has pierced ears & nose, and was wearing a gold chain necklace on the day of her disappearance.
