    Amazing that on an island this small, it took over 2 weeks for her to be located.  Glad she’s alive, and hope steps are taken to ground her until she’s 18.

    Maybe I’ve missed something, how can someone be arrested for providing her food and shelter? None of the reports I read said she was wanted for anything other than being a runaway so it’s not like they were aiding a wanted felon or anything.

    how come there hasn’t been and investigation into the reason why this girl  run away from the girls home and the reason why she didn’t seem to want to be found?

    the are rumors going around about girls being sexually assaulted by male staff of the girls home, maybe the family unit should make a fromal enquiry into this matter, and stop covering up sexual assault cases on underage girls and boys.
