Your nanny Rita lost both of your daughters - Victoria and Charlotte.
April 9th, 2009 around 11:30am at Carl Schurz Park on the Upper East Side I was with my students and fellow teachers (I am a teacher) and I saw a girl around 2 or 3 years old wandering around alone crying. She had curly hair. I asked her her name and she said her name was Victoria and that she was lost. I asked for her nanny's name and she told me it was Rita and that she had dark skin. I picked Victoria up and carried her around the park trying to find Rita. About fifteen minutes later she pointed to a woman with an empty stroller, she was dark skinned and had an accent. It was Rita. She said she had been watching the sister and that Victoria had wandered off. I asked where the sister was who was 6 years old and she said she was off looking for Victoria and that now she could not find the sister whose name she told me was Charlotte. I found Charlotte who was alone and looking for Victoria. Your girls are lovely girls and were very frightened - especially Victoria. What concerned me was that anyone could have easily taken the children out of the park and the Rita would not have noticed. She was not even looking for the children and was not upset at all when I returned Charlotte. I wish you the best.
