Today when I picked up my son at his house to take him to the doctor, he was very excited to tell me about things he had learned. Unfortunately, he doesn’t understand what it means or how scary the situation is – to him it’s exciting news because someone he knows was on TV.
Malika lived in my son’s supportive community – “Malika moved” “Malika on TV” “Malika lost” was the news that he told me.
Malika has now been found:
A 17-year-old mentally disabled girl who ran away from a Bonney Lake-area group home Sunday was found safe this morning, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office.
Auburn police found Maliika Andrus at a Starbucks coffee shop after a witness reported seeing her. She was taken to a local hospital for evaluation and will be returned to the group home later today.
Staff last saw the teen early Sunday morning at the facility in the 18400 block of South Tapps Drive East. Deputies believe she tampered with the alarm on the window of her room so she could escape
