Moniece Slaughter took to social media to ask for help finding her baby brother, DJ, who is mentally ill and has been missing for 3 weeks.
The “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” star went on Instagram Live with her mother and grandmother for almost a half hour detailing a vicious cycle of psychiatric holds, arrests, and she revealed her brother was recently caught on video walking down the street completely naked.
Mo shared the following on her Instagram page:
Just got off of live. This is my younger brother. He’s been missing now for the past 3 weeks. If you see him anywhere. He’s mentally ill and we’ve not been able to get him properly treated.
Police have told us we can not file a missing person’s report. They said he keeps getting detained so he’s not missing. He’s been arrested twice now for walking on the freeway. And they released him, they told us he wasn’t suicidal. Now he’s been spotted naked walking around Woodland Hills. He was detained, and released today.
We’ve already informed police, MONTHS ago that he’s mentally ill. If you see him or have any information please dm myself, my grandmother @qltywoman, my mom @marlatalks or my dad @davetake6 the goal is to have him safely detained by law enforcement so that the PET team can pick him up and we can have him involuntarily medicated.
Do not approach him. Do not attempt to detain him. Do not agitate him. Please inform us first and then law enforcement.
According to Moniece and her family, it was Brandy Norwood who encouraged him to stop taking his meds and reintroduced him to substance abuse.

If you have a loved one with mental illness you understanding how challenging it can be for them as well as the family.
I’m sending up prayers for DJ’s safe return.
