Missing Hillsborough girl, 11, with Asperger’s Syndrome found alive


BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS SHE HAS BEEN FOUND ALIVE. SHE WAS FOUND THIS MORNING BUT POLICE BELIEVE SHE WASN’T READY TO BE FOUND THAT THEY REMEMBER SHE IS A HIGH FUNCTIONING ASPERGER’S CHILD. A LOT OF WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN THE TIME SHE DISAPPEARED AND THE TIME SHE’S BEEN FOUND IS STILL UNKNOWN. THEY’LL GET TO THAT. THE MOST IMPORTANT PART IS SHE HAS BEEN FOUND A LIVE. WE WANT TO GO TO RYAN HUGHES RIGHT NOW. HE IS STANDING BY RIGHT NOW AT THE SCENE WITH THE VERY LATEST. . GOOD MORNING TO YOU BOTH. OF COURSE THERE ARE A LOT OF QUESTIONS RIGHT NOW AFTER WE JUST GOT A BRIEFING FROM THE SHERIFF OF HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY. JENNA FOUND ROUGHLY 30 MILES FROM HER IN PASCO COUNTY. IMAGINE HOW FAR, HOW LONG IT TOOK HER TO GET THERE. THE SHERIFF DOES NOT KNOW IF SHE WAS GIVEN ANY ASSISTANCE BETWEEN HERE AND BRANDON AND THAT CIRCLE K STORE WHERE SHE WAS FOUND. SPECIFICALLY WHEN SHE WAS FOUND HE SAID HE DID NOT KNOW AT THIS POINT BUT A CITIZEN AND A CONVENIENT STORE CLERK APPARENTLY NOTICED HER AND FROM NEWS REPORTS AND SIMPLY CALLED 911. AND THAT’S WHEN DEPUTIES WENT TO THAT STORE. TALKED TO HER. SHE REALLY DIDN’T WANT ANY CONTACT WITH THOSE DEPUTIES. THEY TALKED TO HER, IDENTIFIED HER AND OF COURSE THEY CONTACTED HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY SHERIFFS DEPUTIES WHO IN TURN CONTACTED HER PARENTS. SO SOME GOOD NEWS, OF COURSE, AT THIS POINT. SHE IS BEING MEDICALLY EVALUATED RIGHT NOW TO MAKE SURE SHE IS OKAY AFTER BEING GONE FOR SOME 37 HOURS BUT SHE WILL EVENTUALLY BE REUNITED WITH HER PARENTS HERE IN BRANDON. MARCO, STACIE. YEAH, THE GOOD NEWS IS THE SHERIFF IS SAYING THE FAMILY IS CURRENTLY ON THE WAY TO HER. HOPEFULLY THEY’LL BE REUNITED HERE SOON AND WE’LL GET SOME ANSWERS TO THOSE QUESTIONS AS TO WHAT HAPPENED AND THE TIME THAT SHE WAS MISSING. THANK YOU. WE DON’T KNOW WHY SHE LEFT HOME. THEY SAID THERE MIGHT BE MINOR EMOTIONAL PROBLEMS. UNLESS THERE’S SOMETHING CRIMINAL IN NATURE THE SHERIFFS

  1. so the HCSO. never reported she was really a run away, and had dozens of us in the community searching the woods in the rain all night and give no further explanation to the community –  the parents and the SO owe the public a full report___ QUESTION 1: What kind of parent lets there 11 year old wander away for an hour or two at a time without putting safety procedures in place? much less a special needs child?QUESTION 2: How did she get to Pasco Cty? (not walking) and did HCSO conduct an early examination of computer/ internet etc? QUESTION 3: If she did meet someone online this should be reported so that other parents can learn to take more control of their kids.QUESTION 4: Where are the parents now? I haven't heard the first word of gratitude to the HCSO or the community for the tremendous time and money expended…. ever heard the fable of the boy who cried wolf … that's how the community feels
