Kaneshia Morris

ALBANY, Ga. -- The mother of a 14-year-old reported her missing from her Frost Street home after the girl left before 8 p.m. Monday, an Albany Police Department official said. By about 9 p.m. Tuesday she was found, the official added.

Kaneshia Morris was found, said Phyllis Banks, police spokesman. "The circumstances regarding her recovery have been forwarded to the Albany Police Department's Family Protection Unit for a follow-up investigation," she added.

Because of the investigation, Banks said, no word on where Morris was found, who found her or what happened in the little more than 24 hours she was missing was available.

Morris went to a store about three blocks away on the 1800 block of East Broad Avenue to buy soft drinks but did not return home. The teenager was last seen in the alley behind the store.

Police said Kaneshia's mother, Jacqueline Williams, indicated the family is new to the neighborhood and Kaneshia has not yet formed friendships.

Anyone with additional information should call investigations at (229) 431-3288 or Crime Stoppers at (229) 436-TIPS (8477). The Spanish speaking APD-COP Tip Line is (229) 434-2677.

Crime Stoppers is an anonymous tipline. People with information could become eligible for cash rewards.

Found?? She was not lost. She was right where she wanted to be. If monies were spent on this, they should be charged back to the parent. This was a rowdy teenager who the parents have allowed cell phones and whatever, now she thinks she is grown.

If you are right, she will have a "friend" in about 9 months.
