How do two kids disappear from the state agency supposed to make sure they're cared for?
That's the question as police search for two sisters, ages 14 and 15 - one of them missing for 7 months from the care of the Department of Children and Family Services. CBS 2's Pamela Jones hit the streets tonight on the case.
The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services said Larita and Shantease Coleman are two of 192 children missing from their system. That's out of a total of more than 15,000 wards of the state in DCFS care.
Larita Coleman, 15, disappeared from DCFS care while staying at Aunt Martha's Youth Home at 5001 S. Michigan Av. Police said she was last seen with her sister Shantease on May 2, possibly near 79th and Langley. But police did alert the media about her case until December.
DCFS said that From July 1, 2008, until June 30, 2009, 1,450 of their kids ended up missing.
The report out of Denver was a very important and very fresh lead. We have been told that a ground crew member observed a plane filled with minors, about to depart. When he started asking questions, a woman flashed a badge, said, "Social services!", and told him to get lost. He checked the manifest,and discovered it was headed for Paris.
Sure seems like our agencies are up to no good huh?!!
