Shamia Little, 17
Shreveport, Louisiana
Last seen July 6, 2021

SHREVEPORT, La. — Shreveport police no longer are actively searching for a missing 17-year-old girl; however, the case remains under investigation.

Shamia Little was reportedly last seen at Doug Williams Park near Jacob and Kennedy streets around 11 p.m. Tuesday, July 6.

Shamia is described as a Black female who stands about 5′ 10″ tall and weighs around 130 pounds. She last was seen wearing a blue soccer jersey and black Nike soccer shorts with a white horizontal stripe.

Now her family is sharing new photographs of the missing teenager in hopes it will help bring her home.

SPD officials say the case is being treated as a possible abduction. K-9 units and helicopters were deployed Wednesday afternoon to search for the girl.

An alleged teenage witness spoke to police at length and was released into the custody of his parents Wednesday night. That witness reportedly told police that he was in a relationship with Little and that they were hanging out at the park when it happened. Police say he told them a strange man walked up to them, pointed a gun at them, took their cellphones and had them walk into a wooded area nearby.

At this point, the witness reportedly ran away and found an officer parked at the library branch on Greenwood Road and told him what happened. Police say they searched the park and found the alleged witness’ shoes in the park.

Officials with the Police Department say they’ve reviewed surveillance footage from a couple of nearby places, but nothing has been helpful thus far.

The investigation now centers on a search for clues in phone records and any additional surveillance video.

At this time, police say there is no active manhunt for Little.

Louisiana State Police has issued a Level II Endangered/Missing Child Advisory on behalf of SPD.

Police ask that anyone with information about the girl call SPD at 318-716-8761.
