A 17-year-old girl who reportedly wrote a letter to her mother, stating she was "running away", was this afternoon taken off a JetBlue flight destined for New York.
The Gleaner understands that on seeing the letter, the mother asked the police to check all the New York-bound flights departing the Sangster International Airport, where she found her daughter getting ready to take off.
Minors aged 15 to 18 years are allowed to travel on their own.
Otherwise, they must be accompanied by an adult.
