Jelani Day Missing case Details

Jelani Day’s mother, Carmen Bolden Day, had spoken out in recent days, pleading for more help finding her son after the massive wave of interest sparked in the case of Gabby Petito, which has highlighted the disparities between cases where the missing person is White and those involving Black and brown persons.


Bolden Day told HLN Petito’s case is important, too, adding she understands the position Petito’s mother is in. But Day’s case “did not get that involvement,” she said. “I didn’t get that attention.”

Investigation officers said “Day was last seen on August 24, and his vehicle was located in Peru, Illinois, a couple of days later on August 26.

An initial search took place on August 26. Fermon said there were extensive K-9 searches conducted by Illinois State Police, drone aerial searches by local jurisdictions, and ground searches. Nothing was found then or in subsequent searches,”.
