The perplexing tale of a pregnant South Ozone Park mom who mysteriously vanished for three days ended on a positive note last Friday morning with the woman being found, safe and sound, in Manhattan.
According to authorities, Amarjit Kaur, 34, a mother of 7-year-old twins who is six weeks’ pregnant, disappeared after running an errand on Tuesday, Dec. 5, at approximately 10:30 a.m. at the Chase Bank on Liberty Avenue and 118th Street, not far from her 128th Street residence.
The case took a vexing turn when investigators discovered her car parked in a spot on 113th Street with her cell phone inside. Surveillance footage secured from a nearby store showed Kaur parking the car, talking on the phone for about five minutes, then exiting the vehicle and walking away. She was supposed to pick up the twins from school that afternoon, but never did.
Kaur was found wandering the streets of Lower Manhattan on Friday around 6 a.m. She was taken to a hospital for observation.
“On the face of it, it does not appear that she is a victim of a crime, but we are still investigating why she disappeared,” a police source told the New York Daily News.
The News also noted that the NYPD is performing an “internal review” to learn why Kaur’s husband’s report to police was initially characterized as “unfounded.”
