Jonah Skidmore is a thirteen year old boy, living in the twenty-seventh century and the main antagonist in The Missing series. He is the adopted son of Michael and Linda Skidmore. He has a sister who is a year younger, named Katherine. Jonah plays soccer and basketball(pretty good at it, too) and is tall. He has short, blond, straight hair, dimples, freckles, pale skin, and beautiful blue eyes (according to his mom). His best friend is Chip Winston , who is Katherine's boyfriend. Jonah has a huge crush on Andrea Crowell. (Shown in Book 3) Jonah is shown to be slightly mischievous with a good sense of humor. He is slightly paranoid and more street-smart than his sister. He is kind, thoughtful, and empathetic. He is fairly smart, is good at math, and his identity has been revealed in book 7.
After the MissingEdit
Jonah and the other missing children were kidnapped by Gary and Hodge which transformed them into babies. However, he was adopted by Michael and Linda and lived a normal life until he recieves a mysterious letter saying that he is one of the missing. Soon after, he finds out that his best friend (Chip Winston) received the same letter earlier that day. Then they both recieve another letter that says "Beware! They're coming back to get you."
Jonah, Chip, and Katherine (Jonah's sister) are trapped in a cave by two men named Mr. Hodge and Gary. It turns out they are trapped with the other thirty-five kids that are missing from history. A man who the three call JB (stands for Janitor Boy as they first saw him when he was disguised as a janitor for the FBI) appears with a woman named Angela Dupre and saves them, but sends Jonah, Katherine, Chip, and a boy named Alex back in time.
Jonah and Katherine save the chips and Alex from their deaths at the end of Sent. Once returned to the 21st century, Jonah is allowed to live normally for a while. But, he is once again sent back in time with Katherine, a girl named Andrea(Who he develops a crush for) who is Virgina Dare and...a dog named Dare. JB has no idea why that was the combination of living things to have the most chance of success, but still sends them back in time. However, things don't exactly go as planned. A time traveler code-named Second decides to manipulate them by sending them to the wrong area and trapping Antonio and Brendan with them.
This results in Second sending Jonah and Katherine to 1611 where Jonah has to play John Hudson and Katherine's an invisible spy.
