Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Jovonna Stacey Crawford was 21 months old when she disappeared from her home on June 5, 1981, in the P.T. Barnum housing complex. She was left in the temporary care of her mother's then-boyfriend, Ronald Garrett. Garrett was to watch the girl for a short time and then take her to the apartment of her great grandmother, who lived in the same housing project.
When the mother got home from work, Garrett told her that while he was watching the girl, a boy with braids came to the door claiming he was there to take the girl to the grandmother's home. The girl did not get there, and the boy has never been identified.
