Jackson says Allahnia left the family’s home in Douglas County to visit friends, eventually ending up at an apartment complex at 1660 Peachtree Street NE in Midtown Atlanta on July 30.

Jackson says Atlanta police told her they’re still not sure what happened next.

“All I know is that they said she was ID-ed coming in but not coming out,” said Jackson of surveillance video from the apartments.


APD is releasing few details, but is asking the public for help in finding Allahnia.

Jackson believes someone abducted her daughter.

“I can’t really say that all of the worst things that you could think of have not gone through my mind and my spirit and my heart,” said Jackson.

Jackson says Allahnia went to the apartments with a girlfriend to meet several men. She believes one of them knows what happened to Allahnia.

“I love you baby. Keep fighting. Keep fighting,” said Jackson. “Mommy’s out here. I will never give up. I will never give up. I’m coming to get you, baby. We’re coming. Don’t give up. Don’t give up.”

Anyone with information about Allahnia’s disappearance should call 911 or the APD homicide and missing person unit at (404) 546-4235.
