ACT Policing is again seeking assistance from the public to locate 11-year-old girl Susannah Brown (pictured), who has been reported missing.
Susannah chose not to return to her home on Friday evening, and spent Friday night (31 May) at a Woden hotel with a friend. She was last seen getting off a route 6 bus on Yamba Drive, around 5:15 pm on Saturday (1 June).
She is described as Caucasian in appearance, about 165cm (5’5”) tall, with a medium build. She now has dark brown or black hair. On Saturday afternoon she was wearing a black tracksuit top with white stripes down the sleeves, black pants with ripped knees and black shoes.
Susannah has been reported missing several times in the past, and police believe people are helping her including lending her bus passes and telephones, or providing somewhere to stay.
ACT Policing Officer-in-Charge, Tuggeranong, Station Sergeant Greg O’Ryan said that while it appeared Susannah did not wish to be found, her safety was the primary concern of police.
“We have several police officers, and other police resources involved in the latest search for this eleven-year-old girl,” Station Sergeant O’Ryan said.
“Some people may think it’s harmless to give a runaway a place to stay for a night. But simply put, she is eleven years old and when the whereabouts of a child is not known, there is always that increased risk of harm or misadventure.
“I would ask anyone she asks for a place to stay to let police know her whereabouts immediately.”
Anyone who has seen Susannah or has any information about her whereabouts is urged to contact ACT Policing on 131 444.
