Update, October 10: One week after a 14-year-old Florissant girl and her 14-year-old friend went missing, the two have surfaced at a family member’s home alive and well.
Florissant Officer Andy Haarmann says the case never met the criteria for an AMBER Alert since the two were never believed to be in imminent danger or believed to have been abducted.

FLORISSANT, Mo. (KMOX) – It has been six days since a 14-year-old Florissant girl and her 14-year-old friend went missing.
Dominique Cherry-Jones never went to school last Wednesday and was last seen with DaShay Knox.
Florissant Police Officer Andy Haarmann says Dominique’s family received a call from someone who said they saw her in a car near Jennings but the witness later recanted his or her story.
“We don’t have any evidence to show she did not voluntarily leave. We do believe she voluntarily left the house, we’re just hoping to find her and reunite her with her family,” Haarmann said.
Both girls are African-American. Dominique is 4’11 tall and weighs 110 pounds with brown eyes and black hair. Police did not give a physical description of DaShay Knox.
“There’s nothing to indicate they are in danger or there is any foul play. Obviously, we are investigating to ensure that that is not the case but there has not been any evidence,” Haarmann added.
If you have any information about the whereabouts of Dominique Cherry-Jones or DaShay Knox you are asked to call police.
