Durham Police Department has classified Tekenya Wooten in her high risk condition as a “run a way”. Because of your refusal to place information on your police site about the child and her baby and issue the all points bulletin. You greatly reduce the chances Tekenya will be found, safe. Something went terribly wrong at the group home. Have you investigated the home? Spoken with other residents and staff? A group home is not a warehouse for troubled youth. It is suppose to be a safe place for chilldren who have no family and or have been in danger. A child, pregnant can not be very far. Is this a new way to "profile the less fortunate? Do you even know the circumstances of her pregnancy? This is a life. Treating a child like yesterday's garbage waiting for a truck to pick it up and haul it away is a crime. Please take the time and work to properly ensure media coverage by issuing an Amber Alert in this situation.
