Taylor Henry is a fifteen year old Brentwood teen who has been missing since September 4th. According to Debbie Young, Taylor’s mother, her daughter ran away with her boyfriend Jayme Fitch and may be in danger.
On the morning of September 4th, Young drove her daughter to Liberty High School. Taylor has been involved in 4-H, she loves to draw and has a great group of friends. “We were completely clueless when we received the phone call,” said Young. “One of Taylor’s friends called me that day from school and told me Taylor was leaving school to run away with her boyfriend.” She was last seen at Liberty High School, in Brentwood at 11:00 am.
An Amber Alert was not issued because the 15 year-old left voluntarily. Young believes that this should not hinder people from searching for her. “She’s a fifteen year old child,” she says. “She doesn’t have the maturity of an adult to make that decision.” Young continues, “She is young, vulnerable and has been manipulated.”
Young filed a missing person’s report with the Contra Costa Sheriff’s Department. She also filed a missing person’s case with National Missing Children.
Young stated that Taylor started dating Jayme Fitch in May. Fitch lived with his grandmother across the street from Taylor’s father’s home in Antioch. When her boyfriend announced he and his grandmother were moving to Redding to be with his mother, Taylor was very upset, but her family did not expect the teen to run away with them.
When Young rushed home, her daughter’s room was cleaned out. Jayme Fitch’s grandmother had rented a Budget moving truck.
According to Young, Jayme Fitch ran away from foster care to live with his Grandmother. He moved in with her shortly before Taylor began dating him. Young has received information from a private investigator that makes her concerned for the safety of her daughter. “I’m extremely worried about her safety,” she said.
According to Young, Jayme Fitch has texted Taylor’s father letting her know Taylor is with him. Their exact whereabouts are unknown. Debbie Young and several other members of Taylor’s family have been driving over four hours to look for their daughter in Redding, California. She believes they are with Jayme’s mother, Brandy Spencer and Linda Emerson.
Young wants people to know, “It is illegal to harbor a missing person.” She doesn’t know how someone could do this. Young has a few words for Brandy Spencer. “I want my daughter back,” she said. “Take her to the police department, the library or have her call me.”
Taylor Henry is missed by her mother, father, stepfather, sisters, nephew and friends.
“She is a living doll,” said her mother. “I want my daughter to come home,” said Young. “I want her to have a normal life where she doesn’t have to hide.” She added, “We love her and miss her and want her home.”
She is 5’1” tall, weighs 105 lbs., and has blue eyes and auburn red hair. If you have any information contact Detective Parenti with the Contra Costa Sheriff’s Department at (925) 646-2441 or Private Investigator Denise Savastano at (951) 544-5180.
