    Hopefully she’s found safely. It says in the caption American woman. Is there not a picture of her from a cell or computer or something. The description given seems a little disrespectful as always when there is no pic.

      It’s printed in Barbados Today! If the editor couldn’t ask the question I asked before printing useless descriptive information that will embarrass him and the media outlet, then it is at him/her!

      Lol… I’m even thinking that if there is a “normal” mouth there must be an abnormal one. Haha. And, if so, I would like to have a description of both!!

      A normal mouth is the opposite of an abnormal one perhaps…edit before print…lawd smh

    You know that bajans complain when pictures are posted, they don`t like to see pictures unless it`s a criminal, missing persons instead of using a picture, the description they give is so misleading that it`s useless.

    What is the emphasis on ‘american woman’ does that mean more resources will be used to find her.Why not female tourist, i know the Bajans will make every effort to find her, and I hope she is found safe and well, not because she is American but because she is a tourist in Barbados

  25. Alex Alleyne July 27, 2017 at 5:43 pm

    @Hcalndre, “You know that Bajans complain when pictures are posted unless it’s criminal”.
    A friend of mine went into the constituency office in her area to see the Minister to speak about having a street light put in an overgrown /bushy area owned by someone living outside of BIM. The residents are complaining about how things are now a days you can get rob or rape. Would you believe a person call her one day and said to her “I hear you went into the Minister office begging for a piece of wuk, things that brown wid you”.

    Lisa Skeete July 27, 2017 at 6:29 pm

    What a description… next time post a pic. Hoping she’s found safe and sound tho…

  28. Lyn July 27, 2017 at 7:27 pm

    In my humble opinion i believe that when persons are reported as missing…it is best that a picture is provided…that way as soon as someone recognises that individual…assistance would be a lot more forthcoming….i highly doubt that these missing individuals do not have photos as they are constantly using social media and uploading pics of themselves…
