A 16-year-old girl who said her parents asked her to remove a necklace that said “I’m Not wearing jewelry” from her neck has been in hiding since her mother reported her missing.
Kristen J. Sperling, of the Bronx, told the New York Post she was taking her mother to a beauty salon Tuesday to change her necklace, and when she arrived, the woman told her the necklace was a fake.
“I told her, ‘That’s not jewelry,'” Sperly said.
“She said, ‘You’re going to regret this.’
I said, I don’t regret it.
I’m not going to wear that necklace.
She was like, ‘Are you kidding me?’
Jessica told police she had taken the necklace out of her purse and was wearing it under her clothes at the time. “
Sperling told the Post she took the necklace away and called the police after the woman, who asked to be identified only as Jessica, showed up at the salon.
Jessica told police she had taken the necklace out of her purse and was wearing it under her clothes at the time.
She said she left it at the office because she was worried about it.
The teen said she was wearing her earrings, earrings with her name on them, and her ring, and that the necklace had no identifying markings.
The mother, who is also a nurse, said she checked her daughter’s purse and discovered that the jewelry was missing.”
She didn’t have any identification on it,” Jessica said.
Jessica said her daughter told her she had left the necklace in the bathroom because she had a cold, but she did not want to think about it until she returned home.
Sperly told the News that Jessica has been cooperative with authorities, and she was taken into custody and is expected to appear in court in the coming days.
