The Kelowna RCMP are looking for a 15 year old girl after she took off from a Kelowna group home Sunday morning.
On July 16th, 2012 just before 1pm, the Kelowna RCMP received a report that Samantha Henman was missing from a group home in downtown Kelowna. Apparently Henman had been staying there for the past two weeks but was set to return home due to curfew violations. Henman packed a suitcase Sunday morning, but seemingly not to return home. Henman has apparently gotten into the drug culture and is likely frequenting downtown Kelowna and West Kelowna but did indicate a possible desire to hitch hike to Vancouver.
Police are concerned for Henman's well-being as there are indications she is engaging in high-risk behaviors and has been known to inflict self-harm.
Henman has gone missing in the past, usually in conjunction with rebelling against house rules. She is described as a Caucasian girl, about 5'8" tall and 125lbs with shoulder length dark brown hair and hazel eyes.
Although there has been some contact electronically through social media, police must speak with Henman directly to confirm her well-being.
Update: Samantha Henman has been located, and she is safe and sound.
