Nov. 1 marks 15 years since Jaliek Rainwalker’s disappearance

November 1 marked 15 years since Jaliek Rainwalker, 12, of Washington County was last seen alive.

Jaliek was reported missing by his adoptive father, Stephen Kerr, back on November 1, 2007. Police searched on land, in water and by air. They continue to follow leads and just this summer, their search took them to fields in Troy, but found nothing that led them to Jaliek.

Police have labeled his disappearance a likely homicide, and call Kerr a person of interest.
