Absconding children are focus of new plan of action


A NEW plan to deal with children absconding from care homes is being drawn up by the police and the children’s services, the JEP can reveal.

It is understood that around two or three children ‘go missing’ from the unsecure children’s homes every weekend – and social workers say they are often powerless to stop them.

A handful of the children as young as 12 are believed to be among a hardcore of young troublemakers getting drunk and causing a nuisance in town, often in the early hours.

The news comes on the same day that a distraught mother talks publicly for the first time about her out-of-control daughter. She is the subject of the Saturday Interview in today’s Jersey Evening Post.
