I have to ask myself, has America forgotten about little 6 year old Adji that disappeared on January 10th, 2009 while at his grandmother’s home for the day while his mother was working. His grandmother lives in Farm Workers Village in Immokalee, Florida.

Around 5:15 that afternoon Adji went outside to play with some of his friends and before they knew it they realized Adji had disappeared with no witnesses that could help in finding the little boy. Adji also goes by the nickname “Ji Ji” which is pronounced as Gee Gee.

Search crews searched the area and there was a billboard put up with Adji’s picture on it. There were posters put up downtown in Immokalee asking anyone for information on the whereabouts of this child.

Adji was last seen wearing a blue shirt with thin yellow stripes, blue shorts with pink flamingos going down the sides and grey and black sneakers. Adji is also developmentally disabled that functions on a level of a 2 year old and he is only able to speak about five words of English and he can understand Creole but can’t speak it. He does recognize his name when it is called out though.

Adji is described as being a black male that is 3 ft tall and weighs 45 lbs. He has black hair and brown eyes.

Police say if Adji is spotted he might run and try to hide from someone so if anyone spots him please call the police. Adji will turn 7 years old on October 15th.

We don’t hear anything about little Adji in the news anymore and we have received requests to please put his name back out there so that hopefully he can be found as well. Wouldn’t it be a great birthday present for him to be returned home after all this time to his family?

Adji has not been mentioned in the news for a while now. This little boy is out there somewhere. I don’t know where. I don’t know if he is even alive but one way or another, this child deserves to be found. He is an innocent little boy that needs our help in finding him so PLEASE anyone out there that has any information I ask you to call the police. You can also call this numbers that I found online:  Collier County Sheriff’s Office (Florida) 1-239-793-9300 or National Center for Missing & Exploited Children 1-800-843-5678 (1-800-THE-LOST)

Let’s keep Adji Desir’s name in the news so hopefully someone somewhere will recognize him and he can be returned home. Please say a prayer for Adji and his family. God bless you Adji where ever you are.
