Father makes second appeal

For the second time this week, Mark Taylor made an emotional appeal for his 14-year-old daughter Kaneisha to return home.

It has been nearly a week since the teenager left home, telling a family member that she was going to meet a younger cousin at school. She was last seen near the St Luke’s Brighton Primary School in St George last Friday.

Police said she was wearing a red and white striped dress with black tights and a pair of black and white slippers. Her hair was plaited in two cornrows, with red braids.

The young girl had left home once before without word of her whereabouts, and was found three days later by police at the home of a St Michael man who was charged for involvement with a minor just last Thursday.

Earlier this week, Taylor held hope that his daughter would come home, telling Barbados TODAY he had suggested to the police where to search for her.

However, his spirit appeared fractured today, as he wondered aloud whether the child was being held against her will.   

Mark Taylor just wants his missing daughter Kaneisha to come home.

“This time it feels totally different to me now, that is the truth. Somehow to me, she leave home on her own free will, but this doesn’t seem like what she had planned. I think probably if she is somewhere, things may have got out of hand and I feel she being held against her will. I feel somebody telling her what to do,” he said.

Taylor said he was aware that the Royal Barbados Police Force was doing all it could to find his daughter. Yet, he remained anxious and wondered whether enough was being done.

“Up to this morning I called the station and was told that I would not get hold of the detective because everybody out in the field looking for my daughter.

“As a concerned parent I am just hoping and praying that somebody tell me or the police that they see her somewhere,” he said with a sigh.

The father said he logged on to his daughter’s Facebook page this morning, in the hope of discovering some form of activity that would restore his spirit, but found none. He also checked her clothing and it was all there.

“She just leave home with what she had on. What got me skeptical is knowing that she is no dirty person; she would want to bathe, she would want to change her clothing. This got me so good I don’t know what to think,” the father said.

Taylor explained that he and the child’s mother were not in a relationship. However, he said they had been corresponding and were both hoping for the safe return of their daughter.  (AH)

      Were any charges brought against the person who abducted her before?.. Is this person a family member or friend?.. Is Your daughter challenged in any way?.. Disabilities etc?.. Do you all have any clue who the person maybe?.. Sorry but these questions immediately comes mind as I read your views. Are you telling the public the entire truth or just part of?.. Be mindful people are more prone to help when they have a clearer picture.

      Be nice.. Look beyond her grammatical inadequacies. She’s expressing her hurt.. Be sympathetic towards a fellow mother (presuming) and human being.
