Vigilance over children

Shayal Devi
Thursday, August 07, 2014

PARENTS are being urged to be aware of their children's whereabouts during special occasions.

The caution was issued after two teenagers were reported missing in the Western Division over the weekend.

West police media liaison officer Naina Ragigia confirmed one of the teenagers had returned home.

"Rasina Mere of Khalsa College in Ba returned home earlier this week," she said.

"However, the search still continues for 16-year-old Arishma Suneha Khan, who went missing from her home on August 3.

"Arishma has a dark complexion, long black hair, slim built and has a height of 1.5m."

The Form Four (Year 10) student of Tavua Secondary School was last seen wearing a blue dress.

"We have noticed a trend in teenagers who leave home without informing their parents. They go off with their friends and some skip school.

"Police continue to monitor this closely.

"We suggest parents should make contact with friends of their children and create a network. Most importantly, parents should know where their children are at all times."
