Deborah Jessie's family posts fliers throughout PBC looking for help to find her

PAHOKEE, Fla. - The search continues for Deborah Jessie.

The Pahokee mother now has been missing for 72 hours.

Her child's babysitter was murdered.

There's still no word whether the two cases are related.

Deborah Jessie's family hit the streets Wednesday, asking anyone if they've seen her.

"I'm trying to find my daughter," Larry Young said as he handed a flIer to another person in Pahokee.

Young and other family members went car to car and store to store, passing and posting flIers, hoping for help finding Deborah.

"We're just trying to generate some type of information because somebody is going to talk," Young said. "Somebody is going to say something. Somebody has heard something."

Young said he's looked everywhere and now needs the community's help.

"Man something has to give," he said. "I mean you look places and you know she's not there but you still go and look. I got up at three o'clock in the morning and walked in the fields and canals."

Young broke out in tears thinking about the fact his daughter is missing.

Investigators haven't given any new updates nor do they have a suspect or a person of interest in Deborah's case.

They also don't have a suspect or person of interest in Deborah's Godmother Crystal Anderson's murder.

"My daughter didn't deserve this," Young said. "Miss Crystal didn't deserve this. There's no person that deserves what we're going through right now."

All Young wants now is closure and he hopes the fliers lead to that.

"I believe in my heart that she's deceased but my thing is, let us find her body. Let us put her soul to rest," he said.

If you have any information you're urged to call the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
