Ishmale McMellion Missing – Help Locate Ishmale McMellion
Grandmother is desperate for help finding her grandson with a mental health disorder.
Jennifer Mercer said her grandson, 24-year-old Ishmale McMellion, been missing for nearly a week and had been irritable before recent outbursts. Mercer said she and her grandson are close. They’ve lived together for the past several years and she said he started studying cars when he returned from the Air Force.
“He’s very laid back, smiles, very intelligent, talks a lot, very engaging,” she said. Those studies halted amid the pandemic and the grandmother said Ishmael has kept to himself for most of it.
Mercer last saw her grandson at her house in Lithonia Thursday. The family said they filed a missing person’s report with DeKalb County police. “He doesn’t have his phone on him, he doesn’t even have his wallet on him,” Mercer said.
Mercer said it’s not like Ishmael to leave home without saying when he’ll be back. The family said Ishmael is about 6-feet-1-inch tall with a slim build.
If you think you’ve seen Ishmael, or have any information that will help in Locating him, call DeKalb police.
