Appeal to claim lost child

National, Normal


PARENTS of a little girl believed to be between seven and eight-years-old, with speech and hearing disability have been called on to come forward and claim her.
The girl was found last Sunday at the Bomana Police College premises, wearing a red and yellow stripe dress and looked very dirty.
Constable Deborah Giwarkuan from the Bomana police station, who was on duty that day, was told of the little girl’s situation by some boys from the barracks.
Attempts to get the girl talking were unsuccessful.
Const Giwarkuan then took her to the female barracks, where she bathed the girl and fed her.
When asked how it was that she was left out alone given her disability status, Snr Const Mark Mosinakave said he was suspected she was deliberately left alone.
“How can you leave a disable person in the middle of nowhere?” he asked.
“It could be a deliberate act because when we sent the announcement to the police radio about her, no one came forward to claim her since Sunday evening,” Const Mosinkave said.
They are now appealing to the parents of the girl to come forward and claim her.
Const Mosinkave can be contacted on telephone numbers: 7213 9975 or 328 1022 or 340 7147.
