Aaliyah Talley Morris is a 17-year-old who has been missing for a month. Aaliyah was put on the system as missing by Prince George County Police Department on Tuesday, February 8, 2022. The teen was last seen attending her first and third period classes at Bladensburg High School.
Though this is not the first time that Aaliyah has run away, this is the first time she has gone this long without contacting her family. In January 2019, Aaliyah ran away, but the then 14-year-old was found safe shortly thereafter. Though this young teen has been missing for a month now, there hasn't been much coverage about her disappearance. I have yet to see major news outlets pick this story up.
Being a writer that has posted about several missing people on my personal pages and through the NewsBreak platform, I am going to continue to write about missing men and people of color. I strive to be the consistent change that I wish to see in the coverage of these cases.
Aaliyah was last seen wearing a jean jacket, gray sweater hoodie, black uniform shirt, tan uniform pants, and a pair of red Air Jordan 5 Retro GS Raging Bull 2021 sneakers. She is 5 feet 3 inches tall, 120 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. She is sometimes known to sport a nose piercing in her left nostril.
