  • Police find teenage girl reported missing

    STONINGTON — Capt. Jerry Desmond said an officer’s continued concerns about a stop he made earlier in the evening led to the apparent recovery of a teenage girl reported missing from Amherst, N.H.

    Desmond said Joshua H. Peterson, 18, also of Amherst, initially drew the attention of one of the patrol officers who stopped the vehicle, after observing what he believed to be some suspicious activity in the area.

    Later, at about 2 a.m., officers were investigating the thefts of items from vehicles in the area when they came in contact with the same car.

    The car stop was made. When both names were called into the national system, Peterson’s 15-year-old female passenger’s name came up as having been reported missing by her mother.

    Desmond said this morning that the teen’s mother was on her way to the Stonington station to meet with authorities.

    He said it wasn’t clear as of early this morning whether or not the teen left willingly.

    Desmond praised the efforts of the officers saying, “the first contact wasn’t enough, they took the extra steps, looked around and stopped them again.”

    The investigation into possible larcenies and other pending charges continues, Desmond said.

    Thus far, Peterson has been charged with risk of injury to a minor/impairing the morals of a child, weapons in a vehicle and sixth-degree larceny.
