    MEMPHIS, Tenn. - A Mid-South mother is desperate for answers after her teenage daughter disappeared from their home in Bartlett. 

    Johniah Frazier, 16, was last seen walking her dogs outside her house on Nov. 25. And her mother told FOX13 she has never run away from home – which has her worried. 

    However, Shemickco Frazier believes her daughter is still alive.

    Frazier’s family has been going to neighborhoods and stores posting “MISSING” poster signs all across the community, hoping it will bring her home. 

    More than a week after her disappearance, Frazier’s mother spoke with FOX13 about the circumstances surrounding her disappearance – and why she is still searching for clues as to what happened to her. 

    "I don’t know what to feel, I feel cold," said Frazier. "I just wish my baby would come back."

    After Frazier took the dogs out, she seemed to disappear. The dogs were still outside, but there was no sign of Frazier at home. 

    “I’m lost, I have no lead – this never happened to me before,” Shemickco Frazier said. 

    SCSO deputies told FOX13 they launched a runaway investigation, but they are not ruling out any other information that could help. 

    Frazier’s mother had a message for her daughter:

    “Johniah, if you see this, know that your momma love you. Your daddy love you. We just want you back,” Shemickco said. 

    Officials said if you have any information regarding her whereabouts, please call SCSO at 901-379-7625.
