It’s been almost a week since a Sydney-based teenager went missing. The girl named Shannon Wiggins, 14, has been missing for the last six days. There is an increasing concern for the young girl’s welfare, as she’s still untraceable.
Shannon Wiggins was seen last on Thursday at Canterbury Railway Station in the city’s southwest, news.com.au reported. A few other sources claim that the girl was spotted last Friday at a home on Burwood Road, Belmore. The cops, on the other hand, said that Wiggins was recently seen outside a school on Church Street, Canterbury at about 3:15 pm yesterday.
The missing girl has been described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 165 cm-170 cm tall, having a thin build with brown hair. The family claims that she suffers from medical issues, mygc.com.au reports. The police have been investigating the case and the unconfirmed reports of sightings. Despite extensive searches, the cops are unable to trace the girl.
In a similar missing case a few days back, an elderly man was rescued after being lost for four days in the bush near Bacchus Marsh, 65 kilometers northwest of Melbourne. The man named James Grimes, 62, was later taken to The Alfred hospital.
In one of the recent missing cases a few months ago, another Chinese student was found in Sydney. The girl named Zhejuan Huang, 23, was reported missing after she failed to return home and could not be located or contacted. She was said to be last seen by those known to her at St Barnabas Anglican Church, on Broadway in the city. She was later found in Ultimo and eventually taken to St Vincent’s Hospital for assessment.
