Amy Greenan Wiki – Missing Girl
Missing schoolgirls are cold and scared after being locked on the train overnight
Two 12-year-old girls were found after falling asleep on a train and waking up in a locked car without a telephone battery. Amy Greenan and her friend were traveling home from Glasgow on Friday afternoon, and they both fell asleep and woke up on the empty train at Helensburgh station. They then decided to sleep through the night and wait for the staff to return the next day. In the morning, they were about to break the windowpane, but noticed a woman walking on the platform and knocked her down. He warned the station staff who had taken them out. Amy’s mother, Bonnie Louise Greenan, said: “They were hysterical. Amy was cold and tired, and someone went to Greggs and bought her food and drink. They were scared. She had an old phone and no charger.”
The girls’ mothers were worried about them, tried to call them around 7pm and had no answer. Eventually they called the police and reported their children missing. “I was hysterical and couldn’t sleep all night,” Ms. Greenan said.
A friend of the girls told their parents that they had left Glasgow and were on a train to Balloch, near where Amy lived in Gartocharn. “That’s why I was driving to check trains, check out the usual stops, but there was no sign of them,” Ms. Greenan said. Early Saturday morning, the police telephoned to say they had found the girls at the Helensburgh police station. “Everything that could go wrong went wrong. We are glad we got them back – saying we are sick is an understatement,” said Ms. Greenan. The mother of five added: “She’s asking the question – how could that be? At the end of the day, I thought the trains needed to be controlled from top to bottom.” British Transport Police said the staff who locked the train passed through each car, but didn’t see anyone. The force requested CCTV footage to see how similar situations could be avoided in the future. Scotrail and Police Scotland are investigating the situation.
