Overview of Jeannette Millbrook

Can you imagine your 15 year old sister, daughter, granddaughter, niece, or goddaughter vanishing without a trace and a thorough investigation is not provided to find them? This is what happened to Jeannette Millbrook.

In 1990 in Augusta Georgia, Jeannette was a 15 year old girl who is described as friendly, a little shy, and someone who did not “make waves” even when she was picked on by other kids. Jeannette comes from a big family that is tight knit and she is the fraternal twin of Dannette Millbrook who she shares a special bond with. Jeannette and Dannette enjoyed similar activities like doing cheers with their sisters outside, picking blueberries from a tree, watching reruns of Punky Brewster, and being a homebody. Also, Jeannette was a freshman at Lucy C. Laney High School, and she had a cat named Jennifer that she loved.

On Sunday March 18, 1990, Jeannette walked to Churches Chicken with her sister Dannette Millbrook after church to buy lunch for their family. When they returned home, they told their mother and sisters that they were followed by a man in a white van. After they ate, Jeannette, Dannette, and their mother began to discuss how they would get to school on Monday and for the entire week. Their school bus could not pick them up since their new apartment was out of their school district. They decided to call their godfather, Ted, who said he would give them $20 for their bus fare.

At 3 pm, Jeannette and Dannette set out to walk to their godfather’s house. After they retrieved the money for their bus fare, they decided to walk to their cousin Juanita’s house where they asked if she wanted to spend the night at their home. They always had sleep overs, but Juanita couldn’t this time.

Jeannette and Dannette then made their way to their eldest sister’s house, Aceander Millbrook, where they asked if she could walk home with them, but Aceander was unable to accompany them. She just recently gave birth and was not up for the long walk; Jeannette and Dannette understood and decided to go to the Pump ‘N’ Shop to buy snacks before walking home. Ms. Gloria, the clerk, spoke with them as they paid for their items and they left immediately after they purchased their snacks. Ms. Gloria turned her head for a moment and when she looked back Jeannette and Dannette had disappeared.

Jeannette and Danette’s mother expected them to be home by dinner, but the twins never returned. Their mother, Louise Sturgis, began to quickly worry. She and their sister, Shanta Sturgis, began walking down the street to search for them. When they could not find Jeannette and Danette, Louise Sturgis called the police twice: once to report they were missing and again after the 24-hour waiting period had passed. The original investigator immediately labeled Jeannette and Danette as runaways and did not thoroughly investigate their case.

A year later, the same investigator closed the case, but it was reopened in 2013 by Sheriff Richard Roundtree.

On March 18th of 2023, it would be 33 years since the disappearance of Jeannette and Dannette Millbrook, and they still haven’t been found. They would be 49 this year and their family is still searching and waiting for answers. They need to know what happened to Jeannette and Dannette.
