17-Year-Old Girl Quarantined For Covid-19 Goes Missing in Clarendon

The Police are urgently seeking the public's assistance to locate 17-year-old Krisson Lodge of a Belle Plain address in Clarendon who skipped home after being placed under quarantine.

The Clarendon Health Department reported that Krisson, who was placed on quarantine at home, has left and all efforts to locate her have proven futile.
