A female ward of the Government Industrial School has escaped from the Psychiatric Hospital where she was being treated and was on suicide watch.
Starcom Network News has learnt that the 13 year old girl went missing from the Black Rock institution yesterday (Saturday).
She is one of two girls who had escaped from the GIS and who had recently turned in themselves to police.
The girls’ parents, attorneys and social activist Dr. Marsha Hinds had urged that the youngsters not be returned to the state institution.
A motion was filed in court seeking to have them released into their parents’ custody.
A Judge is to rule tomorrow (Monday) on the preliminary point of whether she has jurisdiction to hear the application before the court.
A total of five girls from the GIS were being treated at the psychiatric hospital.
