'Lost kids' found

DESPITE numerous warnings, police found children who were separated from their parents during the Farmers Carnival over the weekend, says West police media liaison officer Naina Ragigia.

"We had some cases but in two incidents, police found the children without their parents and we could not locate those parents," she said.

"This is why police had to go and drop the children off at their homes.

"In one case, the mother was at home and said she had left the child in the care of his older sister.

"In the case of the second child, the parents weren't home but they later came to the police station and took the child home from there."

Mrs Ragigia said parents should take heed of police warnings and take precautionary measures when taking their children out for events.

"We warned parents to take heed because all sorts of characters are out during major events."

She said it was good to see people displaying good behaviour over the weekend after Lautoka hosted both the Farmers Carnival and the rugby Test match between Fiji and Cook Islands.
