A family from Columbus just marked a tragic anniversary. A year and a half has yielded no answers in the disappearance of Decorrius Jones. Jones graduated from high school in Columbus — but was 20-years-old and living in Lawrenceville when he left his apartment one October day in 2016– and never came back.
“No money, no ID. So that’s why this is so hard on us because all the lines of communication are just . . . knowing he’s walking around with ID, I mean that’s a problem, ” — Lasa Stringer, DeCorrius’s Aunt
That was Decorrius’s aunts whom News 3 interviewed within two weeks of his disappearance in 2016. Sunday, News 3 spoke with Decorrius’s mother and a private detective working the case. They said a canine search of the area around Decorrius’s apartment conducted back in November yielded no new leads. Sharcorra Jones, Decorrius’s mother, told me on Sunday she still believes her son is alive.
A reward is being offered. If you have any information, please call the Gwinnett County police or Patricia Lane investigations. Ms. Jones adds that the reward money and the private investigator have been paid for by Millennium Mats, the company where Decorrius’s father works. She says the family is thankful for the company’s help.
