JOHN HUGHES TEEN REPORTED MISSING SINCE SUNDAY; PARENTS & POLICE ASK RESIDENTS FOR HELP IN LOCATING HER
Another teen has left home without the knowledge of her parents, and they, along with the Police, are seeking the public’s assistance in locating her.
The family of 16 year-old Joi Williams of John Hughes says the girl was last seen at home on Sunday, April 18, and left without anyone being aware.
According to the Police, Joi is fair in complexion, about 5 feet 6 inches in height, and slimly built. She is a Third Form student of the Irene B. Williams Secondary, and was expected to return to classes on Monday, April 19, when schools reopened.
Anyone having information on the missing girl’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Youth Intervention Unit at 562-8417, or the Criminal Investigations Department at 462-3913/14, “without delay.”
Joi is the latest in a number of teenagers, mostly girls, who have left home for extended periods without the knowledge of their parents.
They are usually returned home, unharmed. However, residents complain that the persons who harbour these under-aged teens rarely face the criminal justice system.
