ORANGE PARK, Fla. (AP) — A school social worker reportedly warned a northeast Florida girl's mother about the danger of the child walking home from school a year before she was abducted and killed.
The unidentified worker told the Department of Children and Families that 7-year-old Somer Thompson and her three siblings got lost at least once walking from Grove Park Elementary School and were found in woods with a stranger. But a DCF probe concluded the allegation had no basis. It also found the girl's mother, Diena Thompson, properly arranged for her children to be taken to and from school.
The 7-year-old girl vanished in late October as she was walking home from school. Her body was found in a Georgia landfill about 50 miles away.
No one has been charged in her death.
