18 year old Jalesa Reynolds has been missing since February 22, 2010 when she was last seen at the Scotland Neck Memorial Library around 11 am. Police have since searched the wooded area around the library to no avail.
Jalesa Reynolds description:
- 5 foot 2 inches tall
- 220 pounds
- medium complexion
- short black hair
- She was wearing tan pants, a pink shirt and a blue-jean jacket with a flower design on the back.
According to reports, the police have traced Reynolds’ Internet activity to a computer at a home on the 200 block of Cemetery Road.
Investigators said they have since traced Reynolds’ Internet activity to a computer at a home on the 200 block of Cemetery Road. They think she went to the home after going to the library.
Investigators said the man who owns the residence where Reynolds accessed the computer is a person of interest in her disappearance.
Police say she logged off her account around lunchtime last Monday at the public library.
Then, around 1:40 in the afternoon she checked back in using a computer located in this neighborhood.
There’s been no sign of her since.
“That’s the key piece of the puzzle,“ Williams said.
Her family says it was out of character for her not to come home.
“Stayed to herself, very shy, you know, ordinary teenager, just loved computers,“ said Reynold’s cousin Frederick Lassiter.
Jalesa Reynolds didn’t have a computer at home.
So, she came to this library almost every day to use the internet and Facebook.
Police continue to search for missing Jalesa Reynolds, search the residence where she last logged on to Facebook and seized the computer.
Chief Joe Williams says records indicate she logged onto a social networking Web site around 11 a.m. At 1:39 p.m., she logged onto a computer at a residence on Cemetary Road, which is about 1.5 miles northwest of town. Police believe she left the home between 2 and 3 p.m.
Williams says officers questioned the owner of the residence and seized his computer. The machine is being examined by the SBI in Raleigh.
ABC11 Eyewitness News has learned the house where police believe Reynolds last logged onto a computer is also the home of a registered sex offender.
Police won’t say what role – if any – it may play in Reynolds’s disappearance.
The fact that a convicted sex offender lives at the residence that Jalesa Reynolds is on record to have been in can’t be a good sign. Dwayne Davis is being considered a person of interest.
WITN News has learned that a convicted sex offender lives at a home where deputies say a missing teenager was last seen more than a week ago.
The North Carolina Sex Offender Registry says Dwayne Davis lives at 285 Cemetery Road in Scotland Neck. That’s where police say Jalesa Reynolds was last heard from a week ago Monday. Davis served six years of a 15 year sentence from Martin County for second degree rape and was released from prison in 2000.
A law enforcement source tells WITN that Davis is a person of interest in the case.
