Missing 19-year-old girl reappears after 7 years

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that a 19-year-old girl who had gone missing reappeared after 7 years.

Idris ran away when she was twelve; she said she did not experience the love of a mother and decided to stay on her own.

While she was wandering, she ran into a man whom she approached for help. The man took her to a pastor who took her in and converted her to Christianity. She was enrolled in a school in Jos and ended up living there.

The young girl said she could not really tell what made her leave the house; becoming a Christian was not a forced decision according to her. The pastor upon meeting her did not report her case to the police, neither did he try reuniting her with her family.
