Daughter abducted by mother, father left searching
When Ssamali Joy Kwatia’s father Mark last saw his daughter in early 2013, she was 4 years old. She already loved swimming and gymnastics, and was ready to take on soccer. Mark says she asked him often if she could play. More than a year later, he does not know where his daughter is or if she has had the chance to give soccer a try.
Ssamali was last seen on March 31, 2013 with her mother, Joan Kiyenje. A felony warrant for child abduction was issued for Joan on April 11, 2013.
When they were last seen Joan was returning a rental car to Lake Bluff, Ill. Neither the mother or daughter has been heard from since.
Mark says his daughter enjoyed sharing stories about what happened at school and church. Her favorite foods are macaroni and cheese, and “believe it or not,” says Mark, avocado and pasta.
Ssamali is now 5 years old. She is a black female with brown eyes and black hair. When she was last seen she was 3 feet, 6 inches tall and weighed 40 pounds.
