Where is 8-year-old Malaysia Goins? The Arlington Police Department have been searching for the young girl since a little after 2:45 p.m., when she was last seen outside of her apartment. The child was in an altercation with a younger sibling, say sources, and is considered a runaway. However, it's been several hours and 8-year-old children don't ordinarily stay "run off" for that long.
Malaysia Goins was last seen wearing a purple shirt, denim shorts and shoes that were pink and black. She has brown curly hair that was worn in a ponytail. If you've seen this child, please call the Arlington Police Department.
What needs to be asked, in the meantime, is what adult was present during this so called altercation? An 8-year-old child shouldn't have had the ability to run off in the manner that is claimed in this story. Were her parents around or a babysitter? Has everyone been properly questioned in this disappearance?
