Man due in court on child abduction charge after 14-year-old girl’s disappearance
An 18-year-old is due in court tomorrow to face child abduction charges after a 14-year-old girl went missing earlier this week.
A child rescue alert was issued by police in the Republic of Ireland on Thursday after Svetlana Murphy went missing from Co Louth three days previously.
Last night, a PSNI spokesperson confirmed that the 14-year-old had been located “safe and well”.
Today, a spokesperson for the PSNI said an 18-year-old male has been charged with “child abduction and other offences”.
The spokesperson added: “He is due to appear at Belfast Magistrates Court on Saturday 24th April. As is normal procedure, all charges will be reviewed by the Public Prosecution Service.”
