The Meegoda Police said tody that the 10-year-old girl who was reported missing from the Welisenawatte area in Meegoda recently had been found. Earlier, the National Child Protection Authority (NCPA) sought public assistant to locate the child who had been missing from Friday (26).

According to the Chairman of the NCPA Muditha Vidanapathirana, the child’s mother had complaint with the NCPA and Police that her child had gone missing.

The Chairman said that the child's mother divorced the father and left to the United Kingdom 2 years ago, where she had remarried. The father of the child had thereafter died in November 2020, following which she was taken care by her grandparents and an uncle.

The NCPA Chairman said the child’s mother had returned to Sri Lanka and had attempted to obtain legal custody of the child in order to take her to the UK.

Muditha Vidanapathirana said the Court too had issued three orders calling on the grandparents and uncle to produce the child to identify her fingerprints.

However, the trio are said to have concealed the child, prompting the mother of the child to file a complaint with the NCPA claiming that she was missing.

The Police said that the child had been receiving treatment at the Lady Ridgeway Hospital under her grandmother care.
