In a more than 20-year-old missing persons investigation in Chicago, there may have been a breakthrough.
When Diamond and Tionda Bradley vanished in 2001, they were ages 3 and 10, respectively. Now, a woman who would be Diamond’s age of 25 is claiming to be her. She even approached the FBI.
According to Bradley-Smith, “a young lady reached out on Facebook.” “She thinks she’s Diamond Bradley, my abducted niece,” I said.
This week, Bradley-Smith spoke on the phone for hours and hours with a young woman who resides in Harris County, Texas.
She basically stated that she had a vague recollection of being in a car with Tianda for a while before being taken away and never seeing her again, according to Bradley-Smith.
In the summer of 2001, almost 23 years ago, Tionda and Diamond Smith vanished from the apartment they shared with their family in Bronzeville.
The family has received countless false tips over the years. Most recently, in 2019, a young woman in Texas claimed to be Diamond as well.
“It has been tragic. It will raise you up and give you hope before bringing you crashing back to earth, according to Bradley-Smith.
It might be the same again this time. There is only one way to determine if this woman is in fact her youngest long-lost niece, according to Bradley-Smith.
