CLEVELAND — Cleveland police and family and friends are looking for a missing 27-year-old woman who was last seen the week of June 20-27, according to the Cuyahoga County Missing Persons database.

Rajah McQueen, 27, had just come home to Cleveland from her college, Rosedale Bible College, where she was studying music.

Her family said she was last seen the week of June 20-27 in her Silver Nissan Sentra, with a license plate number JGH3953 and that her car was last tracked in Westlake on June 24, but hasn’t been located since.

According to a poster, her family is concerned for her safety because of a possible abusive relationship.

“This is a mother of two, two children, why would she just up and leave for no reason?” said her cousin Alicia Kirkland. “My aunt is battling stage 4 cancer and she has to go through this, to look for her baby at a time like this.”

McQueen's family said that she has two children and would never leave them.

“When you just look at her you can see joy,” her sister Briana said. “She was going to college to get a degree in music and the ministry. Her life had a purpose. She would never leave like this. We are fearful for her safety."

She is described as having brown hair and brown eyes, with a nose piercing and a red tattoo on her wrist.

Friends and family of 27-year-old Rajah McQueen held a rally in her honor at Woodhill Park in Cleveland Tuesday evening.

In the three weeks since her disappearance, family members have looked near and far for her, but said they have had little communication with Cleveland police.

“We need more feet on the ground. We need people to come together,” said Kirkland.

Judy Martin with Survivors/ Victims of Tragedy said police need to do everything they can to locate McQueen.

“She didn’t choose to do this. We don’t know what she chose to do. She needs to be looked for,” she said. “The police need to listen to this family, to say that this is something out of the ordinary and look for her.”

Good or bad, McQueen's family said they just want answers.

“Regardless of what the information might be, I’m thanking God for the truth to come out. I’m thanking God for clarity because I know He is all that we need,” Briana said. “We want information on all things and we are praying for the best outcome.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 216-348-4232 or contact detectives at 216-623-3138.
