      I agree, however if these were criminal in anyway what so ever we would hear of it. This is why we assume they are just doing as they please.

    Is this the thing for girls? Have anyone notice that boys do not go missing ? I remember that about three years ago I witnessed this trend .When there was an upcoming event or bank holidays teens went missing .I was going to write my thesis paper on this topic .I am now sorry I changed topics mid stream .It would be interesting to know why .

      I do believe the reason more girls are being reported missing is due to cultural beliefs that boys can look after themselves better than girls can. Boys have always been allowed the opportunity of coming and going as they please whereas girls have been sheltered and protected from the outside world. If parents were more trusting of their girl children, had an open communication, children would be more honest about their whereabouts as well as what they are up to and parents would not be left in the position of having to wonder where their children were. Perhaps most of the reported missing girls, wouldn’t have to be reported missing if they and their parents were more considerate of each other’s feelings and dealt with their trust and communication issues together. Professional help in educating parents and children to work together can be helpful in these situations.

      Only difference between them and I, is that I use to call my parents and let them know. If children trusted that their parents would allow them the freedom of spending time with friends or partying, they would be more honest about what they are doing and their whereabouts rather than hide.

    I agree with those who say that the reason for the disappearances need to be exposed..Yes Barbados is small but if you don’t think that the neighbour and the village ain’t talking you are wrong… Time to tell all of us officially… You are asking for our help in locating the child now tell us why… Some Bajans actually worry about these missing girls ….
