Dear Observers, this is an emergency this time. A young, 19 years old girl from South Africa that only came to Taiwan recently has gone missing. She was last seen at the Changhua Police station after 3 am this morning. The girl in question was apparently quite intoxicated and this was the reason for the Police to apprehend her. Officers not knowing any better what to do with their ‘find’ drove her to National Changhua University of Education at 4 am and left her there. Later police claimed they didn’t know how to help her and the girl requested to be dropped off at that particular location, the force did not try to contact anybody. A search party has been dispatched combing Changhua county.
The girl doesn’t know anybody here in Taiwan apart from a few people that are beside themselves with worry. Her phone must be lost or broken as it appears to be turned off when somebody calls it.
