'Missing' mother and daughter found
A woman and her daughter, who family members reported as missing on the weekend when they did not return home after reportedly visiting a Western Union, have been found.
Shortly before press time THE STAR was informed by the police that 34-year-old Kissie-Ann Pantry and her seven-year-old daughter, Kirowna Ramsey, both of Blue Mountain Drive, Nannyville Gardens, St Andrew were found and are in good health.
Head of the police's Corporate Communications Unit, Inspector Dahlia Garrick told THE STAR that, "They were found a short while ago in good health. They were at some other associate's house."
Our news team was told that the woman gave the police the impression that she had no idea she was presumed to have been missing.
"Her family reported her missing, but she refuted that. What we encourage is that once you cannot account for a family member report it until proven otherwise. This was a case of otherwise, and we are happy it had a happy ending," Garrick said.
Our news team gathered that though Pantry reportedly made contact with a relative following the missing report both her and the child were still considered missing by the police.
Photos of Pantry and her daughter went viral on social media on the weekend with a voice note appealing for persons to assist in finding their whereabouts.
