Benjamin’s aunt Jihan Johnston shared a flyer on Twitter this Monday afternoon for the missing actress. The flyer also mentions that the 27-year-old was sporting a pair of pink jogging shorts, a purple crop top and white sneakers.
Jaida’s mother expressed her distress on the matter
The Family Reunion star’s mother Jocinda shared the flyer on Instagram expressing her helpless state. She said she never imagined she would have to share this kind of post someday and requested everyone to help her find her daughter.
Since the time Jaida disappeared, her family hasn’t been able to get in touch with her. According to LAPD, there was no foul play during that time.
It’s the second missing actress case this month
This is the second time where we hear of an actress missing this month. Lindsey Pearlman of General Hospital and Empire fame went missing from Los Angeles last week. The police later found her dead body in a vehicle.
Vicent Ward from The Walking Dead shared the flyer as well, adding that he and Benjamin worked together several times before.
Benjamin appeared in several TV projects including Insecure, Stuck in the Middle, Criminal Minds, Southland, The Fosters and Mad About You. Additionally, she also was a part of some thriller works like The Step Daddy and Murder in the Vineyard. The actress worked with Travis Cure and Denise Boutte on a holiday movie Christmas with my Ex.
If anyone has any information regarding Benjamin’s whereabouts, they are requested to reach out to the LAPD Missing Person’s Unit. And those who want to remain anonymous, they can contact Los Angeles Regional Crime Stoppers.
