    Police search for 6-year-old girl missing in Kensington

    By Thomas J. Gibbons Jr.
    Inquirer Staff Writer

    Philadelphia police this afternoon were investigating the disappearance of a 6-year-old girl from a sleepover at a home in Kensington earlier in the day.

    "Our main concern right now is to find this child," said Capt. Len Ditchkofsky, commander of the East Detective Division. "We have no information at this point that says foul play is involved."

    Although police were treating this as a "missing tender age" search, Ditchkofsky had initially said the state's Amber alert system had been activated through the Pennsylvania State Police. The system uses media bulletins similar to weather warnings to help locate missing children after an abduction.

    However, other investigators later backed off that statement, saying the system had not been activated because the girl's disappearance did not fit the criteria for sparking an alert.

    Girl Staying With Family Friend

    POSTED: 12:14 p.m. EDT August 7, 2002
    UPDATED: 7:39 p.m. EDT August 7, 2002

    PHILADELPHIA -- A woman told Philadelphia police that she thinks she saw 6-year-old Destiny Wright in a Rite Aid store about 1:30 Wednesday afternoon.

    The woman said she spotted the girl at the chain store located at Torresdale and Erie avenues. Police are reviewing surveillance videos to see if the girl was Destiny, who disappeared from a Kensington home overnight.

    Police told NBC 10 that Destiny was at a sleepover party with a group of girls at a rowhome on East Westmoreland Street in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. She disappeared sometime after 2 a.m. Wednesday.

    Kareama (Destiny's mom) said that she was told about several things that did not seem right.

    Neighbors heard some screaming in the back yard about 5 in the morning, but nobody went out there to check. But they found some shoes that don't belong to nobody in that house. They found one in the back yard and one in the alleyway and that's all. They don't have no evidence or nothing.

    One neighbor, who asked to not be identified, told NBC 10 that she is sure she heard a scuffle around 6 a.m.

    "I heard a little girl in the back scream. She said 'no!' That's all I heard. I thought it was one of my kids so I did not look through the back. So, I yelled, 'Why you up so early?' and then I didn't hear any more screaming," the neighbor said.

    Default Wonder what he will get for a sentance.

    I also wonder how many other children he has harmed...being the "perfect" baby-sitter and all.

    http://newsdirectory.com/go/?f=&r=pa&u=www.nbc10.com

    "Destiny's body was found in an overgrown lot Thursday night and Abdul El Shabazz faces multiple charges, including murder, rape, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, statutory sexual assault, sexual assault and aggravated indecent assault, all felonies. He also faces misdemeanor counts of indecent assault, indecent exposure, abuse of a corpse and corruption of a minor.

    Family members told NBC 10 that El Shabazz was the perfect baby sitter. He was always available to take care of the little ones and clean the house. While the family frantically searched for Destiny, he searched too. But police said that his conversations with them didn't add up. "
