Hunter’s daughter, Jahessye Shockley, has been missing for nearly a week. Hunter reported that the 5-year-old disappeared from her Glendale apartment while she was out running an errand last Tuesday afternoon.

 

Glendale police Sgt. Brent Coombs told KPNX that Hunter’s 2006 conviction for abusing her other children is a part of their investigation, but Hunter is not considered a suspect in Jahessye’s disappearance at this time.

 

Coombs could not be reached for comment Monday morning.
