Popular Youtuber Finds A Missing Mother Accidentally
A youtuber named Brooke made a feel good video about feeding the homeless in downtown Los Angeles, which is somewhat of a trend on the platform these days. Little did he know that among the indigents he was gifting, he had encountered an actual reported missing person.
This person turned out to be Jamie, the mother of the 10-year-old child who happened to watch this video about feeding the homeless. She had been suffering from drug addiction and had mental problems, eventually disappearing on November 2015 from her hometown of Atlantis, Florida.
When her 10 year old son saw her in the video, Eddie, the boy’s father, immediately contacted Brooke the youtuber regarding the video. Upon hearing the story, Brooke took the initiative to look for Jaime in the downtown LA area where he had filmed the feeding the homeless video. After a 9 hour search, he gave up all hope of ever finding Jaime, the family’s missing mother, and told Eddie he had no luck in finding her.
With the relief and renewed hope that Jaime at least was alive, Eddie flew from Florida to LA to aid in the search. When Eddie arrived, he and Brooke searched for another 8 hours. In that time they got a lead from a homeless man who told them he had seen her around and told them the area/streets where she might be living in. Brooke headed home but that is when Eddie miraculously found Jaime. He told Brooke the good news and they got her new clothes and a phone the next day. Unfortunately for them, they do not have the funds to take her back to Florida as Eddie used up all his disposable money to fly to LA and look for Jaime.
The video detailing the story is below:
This is the original video where Jaime’s son found his homeless mother being fed by Brooke the youtuber. She appears briefly at 2:28 in the video.:
