A Mother’s Plea for the Safe Return of Her Teen Daughter

Asha Panting

A thirteen-year-old Nazarene High School student has been missing since Monday evening. Today, her mother Shemadine Panting came to News Five studios to report that Asha went to school and has not been returned home. The second former was last seen around five-thirty p.m. when her teachers dropped her home following a volleyball game at the Saint Catherine Academy gym, but Asha never entered the house. It is believed that she is in the city, but does not want to come home. Panting made an appeal for her daughter to come home.
