Police: Missing girl most likely kidnapped
PHOENIX — Police looking for a 5-year-old girl who has been missing six days said Monday they now think she was most likely kidnapped, because otherwise they would have found her.
Jahessye Shockley was last seen by her three older siblings Oct. 12 at her Glendale home while their mother was running an errand. Police think she left their apartment through the front door but don’t know anything about what happened next.
“If it was just her walking away, we would have found her by now,” Glendale policeSgt. Brent Coombs said. “Obviously, she’s not with us. Somebody knows something or somebody has interacted with her and put her in a place, and we just haven’t found her yet.”
Police have no suspects, evidence or promising leads.
School limits bathroom visits for students
EVERGREEN PARK — Students at a suburban Chicago high school will have to hold it or risk staying after school.
A policy at Evergreen Park High School allows students to leave class three times per semester to go to the restroom. After that, they have to make up any missed class time after school.
Principal Bill Sanderson told the SouthtownStar of Tinley Park the policy is designed to make sure students don’t miss valuable class time. He says it deters them from using restroom visits as an excuse to miss class.
Each teacher gets to decide whether to enforce the policy in their classes.
But some students argue that they don’t have time to stop at the restroom otherwise because they only get five minutes between classes.
