A five year old disappears mysterously

Nkoranza (B/A), Jan. 26, GNA – Residents of Kransieso-Abarase Electoral Area in Nkoranza South District are living in fear and panic following the mysterious disappearance of a five-year-old girl on January 15, this year.

All efforts made by the mother, Ms Theresa Obeng, residents and the Police to locate the kindergarten pupil have proved futile.

Ms Theresa Obeng told the Ghana News Agency, her daughter was playing with toys in front of their house at about 1400 hours that fateful day but failed to return into the house in the evening.

She explained that when she realized her daughter had unusually over-stayed, she went to look for her from nearby houses but all to no avail. With her suspicion heightened, she rushed to two local FM radio stations; Jerryson and Akyea and made public announcements about the missing daughter but as at Tuesday January 23, the child had still not been found.

Meanwhile Mr. Haruna Awudu, Assembly Member for the area, has advised nursing mothers to closely monitor the movements of their children to forestall kidnapping by suspected criminals reportedly operating in the area.

He urged them to take their young children along with them when leaving home or to entrust them into the care of grown up persons who could keep them safe.

Mr. Awudu told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at Nkoranza that the disappearance of the girl, a pupil of the local Premier International Preparatory School, continued to create fear and panic among the people.

The Police are searching for the girl.
