Family Of Missing Girl, Yasmin Acree, Meets With McCarthy

CHICAGO (CBS) — A few West Side ministers and about a dozen other supporters met with Police Supt. Garry McCarthy about a teenage girl who has been missing for nearly four years.

The group wants assurances from McCarthy that the department is making the case of Yasmin Acree, who would now be 18, a top priority.

The Acree family has accused Chicago police of not aggressively investigating her disappearance.

The Rev. Ira Acree, a relative of Yasmin’s, said the police department later acknowledged that there was forced entry into her home after initially saying there was no evidence to support the idea that an intruder entered her West Side home.

Supporters want the same access to the current top cop as they did with past Supt. Jody Weis.

Yasmin Acree, 15, was an honor student at Austin Poly Technical Academy when she disappeared in the Austin neighborhood in January, 2008.

    Why is McCarthy giving time to the family of someone who has been missing for four years? She is one in hundreds. This idiot reverend is out of line even suggesting that police aren’t giving this cold case the time that it deserves!

  • Shataniana Simmons

    Accusing police of not aggressivly investigating her disappearance? She is one in hundreds, why would this idiot reverand think McCarthy has time for him? This is a four year old case. The next thing you know this stupid reverand will accuse the police of not caring because she is black, which we all know is a whole load of BS!!!
