Update: The Search for a missing mom is over, but questions of why she went where she did are just beginning.

29 year old Rasheedah Johnson of Wilson was last seen two weeks ago when she dropped off her kids at a family member's home. She said she was headed to Raleigh to look for a job.

Police say she was found in New Jersey according to the Wilson Times. The report says the exact location of where Johnson was found, and why she was there will not be released.

    All this prejudice is preposterous and a joke.I taught my daughter if you lay down and woman enough to have a child,it'your responsibility to take care of it.She was pregnant with her second one her senior year.Guess what she walked across that stage on time with her graduating class.There was no objection to dropping out,not as long as I had breath in my body.There were days I carried the baby to work with me.It was either they send me back home,there was no objection for my daughter to drop out.She worried pm shift until the doctor took her out of work.She's got three now,never has received public assistance.So don't characteririze all blacks in the same basket.My baby boy has a little boy she's in college full time and work full time.So speak on what you know,not what you think.By the way my daughter is a full time college student.Go to RSS,you'd be surprised at your race sitting in there for hand out and and I mean these are not poor people.Do some research before you put your foot in your mouth again.You see,I taught my children well,never expect a handout from anybody.

    Back in the 1960's they would go to new jersey get on public assistance as it was some of the highest in the nation.when the kid's got 1-2 years old they would bring them to N.C and their mother suddenly had another child and guess what they got on public assistance here too! maybe she was hearing stories passed down.

    Is anyone else confused? Was she found alive, dead, injured?? If she's alive, why are there still questions- I'm sure someone thought to ask her why she took off. In any case, I hope she's okay and returns to her children.

    Jeff, I disagree. I have worked a good job since I was 14. I am mixed raced and from the north. When my job was outsourced and I was laid off post 911 I had two children and made less than $2000 a month. Not only could I not get medical or food assistance, I was told to stop my unemployment and get a job paying minimum wage so I can get benefits. I left DSS and NJ discouraged, angry and driven. I moved to NC and got two even better jobs. I have been working for 20 years now and am proud to say I never received assistance. I am black/white/indian and west indian. I work two good jobs and go to school full time. I was considered black and turned down from assistance and it made me stronger. There are people who get over on the system of all races and what I find true in ENC is that people in the south in general are racist and lazy no matter what the race is. Everybody has plenty of time to sit in their front yard sipping Pepsi or lemonade and talk about what everyone else is or isn't doing. Too many white people, since I've lived here has judged me and hated on me because of my ambition and good choices in life. Surprisingly enough I've met too many black women here in my same position. They juggle family, work and school and they are making it without assistance. Media perpetuates the negative images you racist "folks" in ENC like to complain about!

    After some of these comments I've seen as well as before, this is once again exactly why MC Jamal and Lavon are dead wrong about Barack Obama and why they think he is such a great president. Barack Obama don't care about the general black population like those two dudes completely expected. Barack Obama only cares about his family and his in-laws. Outside, he is telling everybody else of all colors that we Americans are only getting second treatment compared to his set of people. Why anybody would want that scumbag in the White House is just insane. It would take a complete fool to vote Barack Obama for another 4 years.

      I disagree.I think many incomplete fools are just as capable of misunderstanding the facts and being misled.

    Why can't we all just get along? Praying for everybody putting negative posts up here. It is not our place to judge this lady.

    WHY? WHY? WHY? Do you WITN let people down rate others. If this was your daughetr, sister, mother, etc. would you post all this hate. Nothing is good or right about what you are letting these people get away with, and it needs to stop before someone really gets hurt. Everybody in this world make mistakes, and they should not have to be judged by the public. SHUT IT DOWN!

      That is the entire problem right there.When you are called out on a crime(not a mistake)you can not fess up to it.Your kids see this and feed off of it.Some of you have no business having kids because of the way you were raised...And if you want to talk about not being judged by the public,just who in the heck is going to judge and keep your ilk in check?The black panthers?Geez,no wonder 80% of your male ilk is locked up.STUPID!
