Deputy Registrar of the National Children’s Registry, Warren Thompson, is admitting they acted hastily in declaring that a girl who’d been missing for three years had been found.
Turshura Parker was reported missing from a children’s home in Kingston in 2016, when she was 14 years old. Relatives located her recently via social media.
The now 18 year old, is a mother of one and is expecting another child.
Turshura’s father, Romeo Parker, told Nationwide News, that while he’s happy she’s alive, neither himself nor the authorities had seen his daughter in person since.
Yet, the Ananda Alert Secretariat has Tushura listed as being found.
Mr. Thompson says they acted prematurely in reporting her as found.
However, Sergeant at the Constabulary’s Corporate Communications Unit, Annesha Austin, says the police visited Turshura yesterday and verified that she’s been found.
She says the teenager has yet to reunite with her family.
