Durham woman, child found safe after search

Posted July 30

— A woman and child reported missing from Durham were found Wednesday morning. An off-duty Durham police officer located Ashli Nicole Green, 27, and Rashad Tylee Eaborn, 4, at the bus station, at 515 Pettigrew St.

Both are safe, police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said. 

The pair was last seen at the same bus station July 18, and on Tuesday police asked for help from the public in looking for them. 

Police said Green is friends with Rashad's mother, but they did not classify the case as a kidnapping. Michael said she didn't anticipate any charges against Green.

    Did this woman not have a cell phone that the mother could contact her? I find that hard to believe.

    Oh gee, I bet that's it... no one simply thought to call her.

    She been trying to catch a bus since the 18th ?

    Maybe they took the bus somewhere, then took the bus back a few days later. That would explain why they were spotted at the same bus station twice....

    what's up with them and the bus station? To be found there twice in 2 weeks.....seems a little odd somehow. Were they trying to leave the area or just catch a local bus? Not quite enough info here. BUT I am glad they were both found safe.
