What would make a 16-year-old model run away from her manger in Paris ? That’s a question for a Ghanaian Model, Miss. Grace Ama Mensimah Amponsah who has reportedly gone missing a day after arriving in Paris.
Grace fled after she had been billed to feature at 4 major shows in Monaco and the just concluded Cannes Film Festival.
Grace was also scheduled to have meetings with worlds leading modeling agency – Elite Models, in Paris.
Reports has it that international Grace had done shows in Nigeria, Ghana and Amsterdam with world class designers, the likes of Diana Pinto,Smocky world and Kingsley Ushie.
Grace has also been to Portugal and Amsterdam to participate in the International Fashion weeks and this current trip to Paris was to solidify her grounds with modelling agencies in all the major fashion markets.
The trip to Paris turned bizarre after her management said they all, excluding Grace, stepped out of their rented apartment to buy drinks only to return to a locked door. After they broke into the apartment worried about the safety of promising Grace, they found out that she had disappeared along with her passport and other documents leaving behind her luggage.
Her management contacted the Paris police, where they saw her on CCTV as she ran away.
Further investigation revealed the plot to vanish in Paris was a scheme crafted by her family and planned even before Grace left Ghana. The plan was assisted by Sarah Essien (her mother) who provided Grace the information on how to escape and link with family members already in France, her manager reports.
