    I’m once again happy that this young lady has been found . That is two 13 year olds and one 14 year old over the last week alone . I hope that the relevant authorities would ensure that the reasons behind why they would leave home is investigated and any needed support offered and if it’s found that anyone is behind encouraging these young ones to “run away” they are dealt with seriously.

      Flogging will make girls at this stage resent you and slip further in a shell.Find out the true reason why they feel the need to escape from home,and put their families through nightmare.Because if you flog a child they may become afraid,but they maybe still going to go against you looking for answers,cause their are young and curious.That’s why we need to talk to children about sex,and their bodies. So when people come to them and try to convince them they have prior knowledge of what’s going on.

    These missing young teenagers are going missing to regular, I wonder when they are found what happens? Is it life as usual or do the authorities investigate and take whatever measures are needed?This is a very serious matter and it certainly has the tendency to escalate to another level.

    So, where was she ‘found’ and what was the reason for her going ‘missing’?

    And before anyone says it is a private matter, it is not. The more of these young girls who go ‘missing’ and are soon found ‘safe’, the less attention people will pay to these notifications. The time will then come when a youngster goes missing ‘for real’, will be in real danger, and no-one will be paying any attention because of the regularity with which these false alarms are raised.

      I think someone they know is taking her & bringing her back to avoid trouble. I also believe she should receive medical treatment & counseling after being taken away from her alleged family by child protection services and placed far away in a good home.

      Sharon Dominique , soon ignore? I think they ignoring them long time now . And the next thing , only a description , no pictures. This is the first pic i see in a long time , so you don’t know if you had just seen her or not. And some of the notices are put out 3 and 4 days after the child has gone missing . Like the people not serious about finding their loved ones .

      Michael Goodman, you have pretty much said what I have been saying since the time when “Amber Alert” existed and I was blasted for it…Lol. Bajans have already been desensitised to these Alarms and yes, there will come the day when unfortunately, no one will pay attention when one of these teens are in danger of being serious hurt or even killed.

        I often hear and read bajans complaining when the media doing its job, they don`t want pictures of accidents, of convicted persons in criminal matters, I was surprised when I saw the pic of the missing girl, when persons go missing the news papers, flyers, the subway, you name it, their pictures are posted. Hope they understand that this is the year 2017 and not 1720.

      Exactly…every week “Young girl missing” next day, “Girl found safe, thank for your cooperation.” Where was she, she didn’t sleep on the street did she? I doubt it. No, “man charged for harboring under aged girl.” Or “Girl charged for WASTING DE POLICE TIME.”

      RBPF should not be issuing alerts unless their is evidence to suggest the teen is in danger. Teens leave home all the time and are in no immediate danger. Normally there return is waited out as they will return home if the home is not the reason they left. Those who leave due to living in abusive situations will find a place to go and are generally safe. I believe parents are using the RBPF as a system to Alert their children that it is time to come home because they may be getting worried because they have stayed away longer than they usually do. Most of these teens may very well be leaving because they just want to have fun and at the time are selfish by putting their own desires first.

    What I would honestly like to see as a young person and mother,is when we can all look out for each other,and stop saying it’s not my child, I don’t have anything to say. If u see a child going in the wrong direction speak to it in a civil manner,look out for the young children in your neighborhood.I just want to see a Barbados where we all look out for each other

      It’s true that its a rough task, but all will not use vulgar language towards you,some will heed your advice even although it may seem like your not getting over,trust me you will get over to some. Children can spot real and fake,if u genuinely love children u can relate to them and their level of thinking. If u go to a child in and aggressive manner expect that behaviour in return. And don’t go with the mindset I’m the adult u got to listen to what i say.If we want to solve problems,we cannot go with the mindset that create these problems from beginning.

      @ Stress Babi they will always be people that don’t understand the clearer picture,because someone can produce a child doesn’t mean they have the capacity to educate that child to what’s correct and incorrect.Because any sane normal thinking person should not get aggressive towards any person that is looking out for the best interest of their child.I can relate to these issues strongly because when i was younger they was a lady in my neighborhood, who always looked out for me,and always use to be on my case about respecting yourself,importance of an education.I sometimes would ask myself why she don’t stop confusing me though, but i never for one moment ever disrespected her. This is more than 20 years ago, but all now as i raise my own children i never forgot a word she told me, she impacted my life, and i try to raise my children the way she thought me.Genuine care and understanding can make a big difference, don’t turn your back on them please.

    Lost today ,found the next day or two..a question to be asked,why every week you are reading or hearing of teenagers going missing, is it that life at home is unbearable, are these children being mislead by older folks,the guilty pleasures of this world are driving them to look beyond their self worth, is it being rebellious, questions that need answers,and then consequences for what suits the behavior..it will be a sad day,if all these teens,being lost is not found..get to the bottom of this thing,before it become a major problem..shalom.

    I bet she’s no longer a virgin. Perhaps another teenaged mother in waiting. I smell statutory rape. Question here is will the police move in and start by questioning that teenager then have a medical report. and action taken by Social and welfare department. All this before this become another expense to the unprepared.

    These “young ladies” go missing and then turn up and the Police thank the public for their support. That is all well and good, but we never hear about any one being arrested and brought before the court. This is worrisome to me and I don’t have any youths. This will fester on just like the ZR culture.

    No Sheryl Smith flogging in public will not be a great idea. I will make things worst. What work many years ago do not work today. Children have become more rebellious. The need some Holy Ghost power around the home. (No laughing matter).

    I hope the authorities investigate this thoroughly. Did she just run away because she didn’t like a rule or chore at home, or was she being abused? Is there a man luring youngsters like her? She needs to give answers to the authorities to clear up why. As for the public knowing, no, it is not their business!

    It should always be considered that these young girls may in many cases be running FROM something rather than TO anything or anyone. Each situation is admittedly different BUT let’s not take the easy way out and confuse someone’s motives for running as being a search for somwhere temporarily happier, if the root problem is abuse in fact any or many sorts at home, by family or those known to family

    It seems as though every weekend these young girls go missing and all we hear is that they have been traced .The police force has to spend valuable time and resources looking for them not only because they are minor’s but they are mandated to follow up on every person missing report within a certain time. But trust them girls don’t be missing like that the only person that them does be missing from is their families cause I am sure their friends knows where they are .

    Glad to know that she is found! Any parent gets a cold gut feeling when you see a missing child! About a year and some months ago a 13 year old from St George I believe Eastline went missing. As far as I remember she is a Taylor family member.I tried to find out if she was recovered but got no information. I do hope she is safe and ok. I’m writing from the New York metropolitan area.
