Missing sisters found safe again, police say

Shauntae Joseph, 10, was reported missing in Delta and her 13-year-old sister, Nikita Joseph was reported missing in Surrey

Police say two young sisters who were reported missing earlier this week have been located and are safe. It was the second time in a week that they’d gone missing.

Delta Police were handling the case of Shauntae Joseph, 10, the younger of the two, as she was reported missing in that city Chris Leykauf, DPD’s public affairs manager, said both girls were located overnight.

“Thank you to everyone who shared social media and the earlier news release in an effort to help locate her,” Leykauf said. That was echoed by Surrey RCMP Corporal Elenore Sturko, in the case of Shauntae’s 13-year-old sister, Nikita Joseph.

“Thank you to the public, media, and our policing and community partners for their assistance,” Sturko said.

A woman named Tanya Marie Joseph had posted a tearful video on Facebook early Sunday afternoon, appealing for information to help find the younger girl, before her elder sister went missing again on Monday.

“I’m very worried about you. I’m worried about your safety, and I love you so much Shauntae, I want you to come home,” she said. “I’m so broken right now, and I’m desperate. I’m desperate to find you. I’m not mad at you and I’m not angry and everything will be fine. I just need you to be safe.”
