Mother Of 2, Rajah Adriana McQueen Vanished From Ohio In 2021, FBI Offering $25K Reward
The FBI is offering a $25,000 reward for information that could lead to the recovery of Rajah Adriana McQueen. She was last seen in Cleveland, OH in the summer of 2021.
Rajah Adriana McQueen was 27-years-old and a mother to two young boys when she vanished from Cleveland, OH in the summer of 2021. The FBI Cleveland division said McQueen, who is the youngest of six girls, was last seen around 7:30 a.m. on June 26, 2021. She reportedly was last seen getting into her vehicle, a 2018 Nissan Sentra, at a gas station at East 131 Street Harvard Avenue. However, she wasn’t the last person seen driving the car.
The FBI said McQueen's vehicle, "... was later observed being driven by another individual with two new bullet hole defects, one in the roof and one in the rear passenger door." News 5 Cleveland reports the other person operating her vehicle was noticed only hours after McQueen was last seen. Per the FBI, McQueen’s car was missing hubcaps and a dealer tag was posted in the rear window. The vehicle has not been located
On April 15, 2022, according to published reports, the FBI and local police hit the pavement, going door-to-door, and letting people in the community know about a $25,000 reward for information in the case. Cleveland Police Detective Kevin Callahan said about the case, "We've issued probably at least, maybe 15 search warrants and interviewed a ton of people."
Callahan added he needs someone to step up with information, “We need help from the community. We firmly believe that somebody out there in either one of those areas in particular know something; maybe they've seen Rajah’s car parked on the street at that time back in June." Searches by the air, including a helicopter and a drone, reportedly have also been used in the case.
In January 2022, McQueen’s cousin, Alicia Kirkland, spoke out to 19 News about the case and about what their family was hoping for. “We really want her to come home, we miss her,” Kirkland said.
McQueen has ties to the East Side of Cleveland, OH and was studying music at Rosedale Bible College. She stands 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs around 130 pounds with dark eyes and black hair.
