Volunteer in Jhessye Shockley case takes unconventional approach

More than two weeks have gone by since 5-year-old Jhessye Shockley went missing from her Glendale neighborhood.

Volunteers continue to circulate fliers, hoping to keep attention on Jhessye's case.

One woman took an unconventional approach Tuesday evening. 

"It's close to Halloween, so I figured why not wear a sexy cop costume," said Kimberly Troup, who passed out fliers at 45th Avenue and Glendale Road.

Troup's ensemble included a police cap, short shorts and black patent boots. CBS 5 News crews saw quite a few cars and pedestrians stop to take fliers from her.

"Sex sells, unfortunately. So it gets people to stop.  And that way we can get the fliers out," said Troup.  "I would just hope if something happened to my kids people would help me too."

On another corner of the same intersection, piles of candles, stuffed animals and messages of support continued to grow. Someone took the time to bring by a tarp Tuesday to protect everything from the rain. 

Glendale Police said they continue to investigate the case and follow up on leads, but so far, there have been no major new developments.
