Five-year-old Destiny Norton has been missing since Sunday. Destiny Norton went missing from her home around 8:30 Sunday night in the area of 720 South and 500 East near Trolley Square. Even though Destiny as not been found, the Amber Alert has been cancelled as it does not meet the requirement. One of the flaws of the system of helping missing children.
Police said that they are missing criteria required for an Amber Alert because they do not have a suspect or direct evidence that the child was kidnapped. They have now changed the status of the case to “endangered child or juvenile”.
She is 3’ 6” tall
weighs between 45 and 50 pounds.
She has blond hair with green streaks in the back
Was last seen wearing an adult-sized black shirt with gray stripes.
Sevkija Ferhatovic was questioned and released by the police in her disappearance. He may be re-questioned, there is no evidence that Sevkija Ferhatovic was involved in her disappearance; however, he has been charged in the past of sexual abuse but was found not guilty.
In 2002 Ferhatovic was charged in 3rd District Court with two counts of sexual abuse with a child and one count of sexual abuse of a minor but was found not guilty on all those charges.
UPDATE: Police ask for help in search for missing girl
Police today, emphasizing their belief and hope that Destiny Norton is alive, issued a passionate plea for residents to scour their immediate surroundings and to reflect back to what they were doing and may have noticed Sunday evening, when the young girl was reported missing.
