LOST AND FOUND
In August, another teenager went missing after she was separated from her tour group in the city of Arlington, Virginia. When the police followed the leads, they found the girl in the custody of none other than her own parents.
Less than a week after 12-year-old Chinese girl JinJing Ma disappeared after excusing herself to go to the bathroom, the police found her to be in Queens, New York.

The parents, who have been living in the US for two years, are fighting to keep their daughter with them in the country.
