Remembering Noelani Robinson

Statement of Alderman Cavalier Johnson March 18, 2019

This past weekend we were made aware that authorities had located missing two year old Noelani Robinson dead in Minnesota. There is collective heartbreak across our entire community after learning of the cold-blooded killing of Sierra Robinson, Noelani’s mother, and now learning about the loss of Noelani.

Whenever someone is missing, it’s important that we bring all of our resources to bear in order locate and return them safely to family.

We want to thank all members of our community who attended a vigil on Friday evening praying for peace, justice, and the safe return of Noelani. We also want to thank all of those who used their own social platforms to spread the word since Noelani was abducted. We also want to thank local media that used their airwaves to keep this story top of mind. Their work is not done but we also want to thank law enforcement from the Milwaukee Police Department to the FBI for their diligence on this horrific incident from the beginning.

Although the outcome of this case was not what anyone desired, we must remain vigilant in caring for all people and all children in our community — just like we cared for Noelani.
