FBI searching for missing Fairfax Co. teen, who may have been going to Norfolk

FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. (NBC/WAVY) — The FBI and the Fairfax County Police Department are asking for help in locating a missing 16-year-old girl who was last seen on Friday, Jan. 12.

Police said Jholie Moussa was seen in the 4200 block of Sonia Court around 4:30 p.m. She is about 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighs 104 pounds, and has black hair and brown eyes.

She was last seen wearing a black coat with a fur collar, a plaid shirt, and blue jeans with UGG boots.

Investigators were contacted on Saturday, and they have been to the home and spoken with the family numerous times. Police do not believe she is in any danger, and Moussa is listed as a runaway juvenile. Her family does not think that she would runaway.

Zhane Moussa, her twin sister, said when the two of them arrived at home after school on Friday, her sister appeared distracted.

At one point, Jholie Moussa told her sister she was stepping outside for a moment. When she failed to return, a concerned text from her prompted an odd response from Zhane Moussa.

“She said she was going to a party in Norfolk,” Zhane Moussa said. “And I’m, like, isn’t that more than 3 hours away?”

Jholie Moussa’s mother said she missed a call from her daughter later that evening but hasn’t heard from her since.

On Saturday the family told 10 On Your Side that they got a tip that Jholie was on 42nd St. in Norfolk. A cousin who lives in Chesapeake went to look for her.  Rynata Leach told WAVY.com ” “We knocked on doors, there were college kids going to parties we checked ODU campus….we showed her picture around went into stores, businesses anything you could possibly think of…it was nerve-racking we wanted to do all we could – we exhausted all our resources.”

Norfolk police and the local FBI office confirmed they have been in contact with authorities in Northern Virginia.

Anyone with information regarding Jholie Moussa is asked to contact the FBI Washington Field Office at 202-278-2000 or https://tips.fbi.gov, or the Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131. Tips can remain anonymous.
