Where is my daughter
Your daughter has gone missing
Can I see a photo?
Hmm, well there is nothing we can do
Wait 24 hours, probably she is with friends
Maybe she is getting food
Your daughter is 16 you say?
Well ma’me, we get lots of cases where 16 year old go missing
And in 2 hours, they come home to their family
Kids her age tend to wonder off
Go home don’t worry
24 hours have passed and she still hasn’t appeared?
Well, we will notify officers to be on a lookout
She probably just stayed over at a friends place
We will notify you if she is found
She still hasn’t come home after a week?
We will issue a missing persons case and look for her
Yes, an amber alert will be issued
But there is nothing we can do with the little information that has been given to us
Don’t worry, relax, we will look for her
Hello, ma’me, I have an update on your daughter’s case
She has… has umm, she has been found.
Police found her, more to say, her body, at the bottom of a lake
With the descriptions given, we have identified her as your daughter
I am sorry that you have to go through this but there was little that we could do to find her
I’m sorry for your loss
