Mother and Police engaged in search for 15-year-old girl who disappeared from Ottos home on Tuesday night

A teenager who apparently left home with a friend, but without her mother’s
knowledge and permission, is now being searched for by the Police and
her family.

It is alleged that the girl’s mother – a resident of Joseph Lane, Ottos –
telephoned the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and reported that
her 15-year-old daughter had left the house at about 8:30 p.m. on March

Reportedly, up to the time this report was lodged, the teenager had not
returned home. And, so far, there has been no confirmation that she has
returned to the care of her mother.

The woman reportedly had left her daughter at home with a friend and had
gone into St John’s. However, on her return at about 9 p.m. she did not see
either of the two youngsters.

Searches were carried out in certain areas that the girl frequents and also
at her friend’s home; but the mother says she was not found.
When last seen, the missing girl was wearing a black dress with white

The teenager is a student at the Sir Novelle Richards Academy and,
reportedly, is known to the Youth Intervention Unit.
