14Ï‡ÏÎ¿Î½Î·Ï‚ Peace from the Attica square.
The president of the “Smile of the Child”, Kostas Giannopoulos, explains to the Un.T.” that there has been a spate of disappearances of minors drawn from contacts established via facebook: “they Have significantly increased the cases of vanishing small girls from their homes. The ferment made up to make the decision to disappear usually take place in social media. It is underage that a lot of times they’re looking for ways to escape from the family environment. This will take advantage of the sophistication that makes them friends in facebook. The drift and disappear”.
Shock causes a real incident that describes mr. Giannopoulos: “Us has been a case in which we found that the minor had 3,000 friends on facebook, amongst whom there was a child molester. Studies have shown that girls consider a person trust the online friend in the know for more than a week. As a result of drifting, mainly from people of the opposite sex with ease”.
The European Line for Missing Children 116.000″ accepted in 2014, a total of 7.151 calls, in 2015 a total of 8.852 calls, while 2016 estimates speak of an increasing trend of phone calls. The responsible officers of the EL.NES. face, on average, every year 300-360 cases of disappearances of minors, of which 2/3 are girls who leave mainly after fights in the family environment, or teenage love.
At a rate of over 50% of the underage girls that are lost are detected after 1-2 hours after the disappearance, while the majority of cases are in ages ranging from 12 to 18 years of age.
In this age group and the 14-year-old Peace left at noon last Saturday from her home in Attica square taking with the 11-year-old sister. Police sources indicate that several days earlier he chatted with a young man via facebook arranged to go together for bathroom. The two sisters were finally concluded in the house of the young in Ano Liossia, with the result that the mother of the children to be upset, believing that her children were lost.
“Peace, even during the extinction, was active on social media. Certainly applications such as facebook is an important part of her life, as well as find through these outlet. With the young, with whom he had emotional ties, communicating mainly over the internet, until he decided to go to stay with him and leave the house. The decision was hers, and not brought responsibility for that. Sure, but we can’t know how much was influenced by their conversations until you get the decision at this age to stay in another house without telling anyone. The child’s mother faces a serious health problem, which, combined with the lack of a father makes it more dicult for the upbringing of children,” says a police source.
When last Monday the disappearance of the brothers took the spotlight, the Peace decided that the little sister needs to come home. That is what happened. At noon of the same day the 11-year-old Anna appeared to her mother in the Attica square. The same, however, not made a Peace, which had to be detected by the cops.
“We are happy that the adventure had a happy ending. The Peace and Anna is in good health. What I want to stress is that parents need to be careful with who they talk to their children on social media. Anyone can take advantage of situations to attract the kids. And that someone is nobody knows who the hell he is. It can be dangerous as we can’t imagine,” concludes the president of the “Smile of the Child”.
