Tura, Jan 21: The 14 year old girl from Adokgre, Sengme M Sangma, who went missing after she boarded the wrong bus to come to Tura was today, Jan 21, reunited with her family in Tura.
On Jan 19, the 14 year old had left Adokgre in North Garo Hills to come to Tura to her relatives.
However when she missed the direct bus from Dhupdhara, she came down to Darranggri from where she mistakenly took the bus to Goalpara instead. Realizing her mistake, the girl got off at Dudhnoi in Goalpara district of Assam and with no one to help, she walked around aimlessly.
Meanwhile while she was roaming aimlessly, some good Samaritans from nearby Amjonga spoke to her and took her to their village where she was kept by them.
In the meantime when the girl did not reach Tura, worried family members filed a missing report at Tura as well as posted their problem on social media. The post became widely shared leading to the AIJIF, president, Alex K Sangma, who had heard of a missing girl being found from the Gaonbura association advisor, who also happened to be a resident of Amjonga.
“After confirming with the relatives, I then contacted the advisor who confirmed that that a girl by that name had been found and was with them. We immediately confirmed it was the same girl after which the family was informed. They were reunited today at Tura,” said Alex.
The case of the missing girl being reunited was also confirmed by the superintendent of police, WGH, Dr MGR Kumar.
