Mum arrested after missing daughter found

In other missing person’s news, Jamie Moore, 39, a mum from East Orange in the US state of New Jersey, was arrested on Friday and charged with Endangering the Welfare of a Child.

Moore’s 14-year-old daughter was found in New York City on Thursday after she disappeared on October 14 from New Jersey.

Her disappearance sparked widespread media coverage in the US with Moore claiming she was abducted.

Acting Essex County Prosecutor Theodore Stephens told reporters the teen was not missing and had actually run away from home.

"She seemed to be more so at ease where she was,” he told reporters.

It is alleged Moore’s daughter had suffered abuse. She and a three-year-old boy have since been removed from the woman’s custody.
