The following statement was issued by Annemarie and Bill Scobey-Polacheck following the return of their daughter, Teenasia, who had been missing since July 1:
We are so very grateful to have Teenasia safe at home with her family. She is healthy and happy to be here and we are so happy to have her with us.
We want to thank the entire community who helped bring our daughter home, including the Glendale and Milwaukee Police Departments, community activist Tory Lowe, Safe & Sound, our family, friends and neighbors, and the many volunteers who helped make this joyful reunion possible.
Teenasia was reunited with her family late Friday night as a result of contacts made through community outreach.
