MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – A Bradenton girl was found safe Monday night.
Twelve-year-old Jalyssa Shannon went missing on Sunday night after having an argument with her mother at their home on 65th Avenue West.
Her family was terrified for her safety because her sister turned up missing as well last year – and was later found dead.
Within hours of the girl’s disappearance, the sheriff’s office began notifying the public.
Jalyssa was found safe at a cousin’s house, according to her grandfather.
“She just got in trouble last night and she doesn’t listen very well,” said Shannon’s grandfather Larry Mosley.
Last year, her older sister Janessa went missing and was later found dead in a nature preserve. Her father Nashon Shannon was charged with her murder.
