Search for missing Cleveland woman 16 years later

Cleveland woman still missing after 16 years

The family of a woman missing now since 2001 is still searching.

Jonni Clemett went to a Cleveland Indians game and never came home.

Progressive Field on game nights like Friday is the summertime pulse of Cleveland.

But so much was *lost* for Jonni Clemett's family after an Indians game on May 27, 2001.

Saturday marks 16 years since she went missing.

Her family is still not giving up hope that someone knows something about that day

Progressive Field was still The Jake. It was an afternoon game. Jonni Clemett, 40 was an avid Tribe fan with an Indians tattoo on her ankle even. She was there with friends from Little Big Bar on Frankfort in Cleveland.

Little Big Bar is also where Clemett was last seen getting into her car after the game just before 5 p.m.

“She said goodbye, see you later, that was it. Her car was never has found,” says Clemett’s sister, Jackie Clemett.

Still, no sign of Jonni, so Jackie is still relentless in the search, plastering missing person posters all over town and handing them to anyone who will take one, “hoping someone might grown a conscience,” says Clemett.

"I think the police just stopped looking. I don't want to stop.  I want her back!" Clemet says.

Jonni Clemett never returned home to Tremont. None of her belongings were gone. None of her credit cards have been used.

She just vanished.

"I try to keep my hopes up, I really do," Jackie Clemett says, as she watched Friday’s Indians game from her Mentor-on-the-Lake home.

She wore the Indians hat she used to wear to games with Jonni, on the eve of the day that will mark 16 years gone.

"I miss her. I miss her a lot.  It's day by day. That's all I can say. It's day by day.  I love you sister,” says Clemett.

Cleveland police said Friday “The Investigation is still active. Missing person cases never close."

If you know anything or have any information, contact the Cleveland Police at 216-623-5200 or 216-623-5227.
