Police Division “Kirovsky” of the Russian MIA Administration for Kemerovo received a complaint from a resident of the district: her 17-year old daughter had not returned home after an evening walk. The girl’s mobile telephone was turned off, and the anxious woman asked policemen to help her.
Officers of the Juvenile Division immediately organized search of the missing young citizen. Inspection of the territory of the micro-district, check of public and leisure places popular among young people, questioning of the neighbors had no effect during the first hours. Patrol field police squads being on duty in the common location system combed yards and streets searching the girl, but that had no effect either.
In the course of the work with the complainant, officers of the Juvenile Division found out that the missing girl had been dating a young man, but the mother only knew his name. The woman did not know his surname, address or possible places visited by the young people.
The police identified the young man’s full data and address in a few minutes. The missing girl was at her friend’s apartment. The girl’s telephone had run out of charge and she could not notify her parents that she would not spend the night at home.
Policemen had a preventive talk with the minor about inadmissibility of such behavior in future. The girl’s parents were notified of their responsibility for their daughter’s life and health subject to Article 5.35 “Failure of juveniles’ parents or other legal guardians to perform their responsibility to support and foster juveniles” of the Code of the Russian Federation on Administrative Offenses.
