      Does it matter now?

        There’s a 14 year old young lady that’s missing. Focus should be about finding her not about what time she left her home. Ask those questions when she’s been found. #Imjustsayin

      It matters. It needs looking into. She could be living in a home, where the supervision isn’t the best, or a home environment that is making her unhappy and thus she ran away, or she could be acting out, as some teenagers do. If the reason why she left home after midnight is found and nipped in the bud, then it matters because maybe, she won’t have cause to do it again.

    A 14 year old leaving the house after midnight is either scared or in love,someone needs to question parents as to which it could be

    Amber Alert Barbados does not seem to be used the way in which it was intended to or should be used. To avoid both false alarms and having alarms being ignored as a “Wolf Cry” there needs to be strict criteria for issuing an Amber Alert. The police should have valid reason to believe a person or persons is in danger/harm, such as abducted, met with foul play etc. before an Amber Alert can be issued. The abuse of Amber Alert will eventually lead to the public (if not already) becoming desensitized to Amber Alerts due to what presently appears to be frequent false alarms. Perhaps B’dos would achieve more by having two systems, one for those whose lives are known to be in danger (evidence to prove such), another system just for missing persons. For example there could be a Missing Persons Barbados to be used for what we are encountering on an on going regular basis, where people do not show up at home then at a later time/date appear/show up safe, sound, unharmed. I am by no means trying to stir the pot, I am merely just pointing out some obvious facts.

    I think amber alert is Doing an excellent job, they are not responsible for the “wolf cry” but merely aid in providing the information of missing persons as they get it, it’s a social media page that is doing an excellent job ,at least the group is adequately informed.

      Amber Alert was named after a nine year old child by the name of Amber Hagerman who was witnessed being abducted while riding her bicycle in her neighborhood in Texas. Amber was later found dead. Amber Alert is intended to be used only for serious disappearances. It was not developed to be used in the way Barbados is using it. Barbados is taking away the real sense/meaning of Amber Alert and it is an absolute a shame they are continuing to do so.

      I clearly understand that their hearts are in the right place nevertheless when a system such as AMBER ALERT which is of great importance and meaning is not being used the way it was intended to does not make it ok. This is why I suggest another system be implemented for the everyday Barbados missing persons issues.

    !$ year old leaving home after midnight ? Is a big ? I must admit

  13. Alex Alleyne March 30, 2015 at 7:18 am

    14 year old….. “hide-go-seek” . Anytime you leave home at them kind of hours you know exactly where you are going . Girl, please come back home and don’t waste the people’s time .

    Fact that these articles are printed with no accompanying photo tells me that the parents really don’t want the help of the public. Why aren’t they supplying the newspaper with a recent picture? Perhaps, this article was placed by the police as a mandatory chore. How can I identify someone with such vague detail? The height, complexion and description sounds just like me!!

  15. kathy-Ann Clarke March 30, 2015 at 9:55 am

    WOW ! all these missing persons. Well I hope they are safe, and will be found sooner rather than later. The 14 year old, I honestly believe she knew what her plans were, she needs some good lashes when she return. The guy, I was wondering if he may be the same person who was kidnapped at Drill Hall Beach???

  16. Kimberley Patrick March 30, 2015 at 10:13 am

    Maria Leclair, just to confirm.. have both Akeen and Meleah been found safe and sound?

  17. Patrick Blackman March 30, 2015 at 2:24 pm

    Pictures or no pictures, the bigger issue here is why are they going missing? Is this the new trend emerging now?
