The mother of an abandoned infant (3 1/2 month old Donavon Prom) is still missing while loved ones continue their search for her. This tragic case is one that is not getting enough coverage in the mainstream media while the family frantically searches for answers. They formed a search party on Sunday afternoon in hopes of locating the missing motherÂ—who was last seen sometime last week in Oklahoma.
The abandoned baby was found in Missouri over the past weekÂ—sparking massive media attention, especially given the fact that this is the dead of winter and the child was very lucky to survive. However, the mother of this child is missing and it seems as though the baby's story is overshadowing his mother's.
Ebony Jackson is believed to have left with a man when she left Oklahoma, and her family says that she wouldn't just abandon her child like this. This indicates that the missing mom might be in some kind of danger or met some kind of danger. It's fortunate that the baby is safe, but where is Ebony Jackson?
