    Not every weekend so there int no weekend that none of these children go missing? But what I realise is that everytime the missing bulletin get put up the children does magically return home

      She walks with a gait which tends to lean to the right….

      No frivolous excuse/s acceptable either.. Oft times these children are very delinquent from the jump and overlooked by parents

    So a 12 yr old is a minor
    Is this the child? Or fake? Media is supposed to put photos of children even partial ones in newspaper?????

    • Kim Ramsay

      How else will she be identified in the absence of a photo? She’s missing

      With the parent’s permission I’m sure it’s allowed

      If the child is missing, it it obvious a photo would have to be provided for identification, because more often than not, you cannot go by the description given by the police.
      I see photos on posters of younger children than her that go missing, maybe not in Barbados, but elsewhere.

      • hcalndre November 19, 2017 at 3:21 am

        Michelle; they are even put their pictures on milk cartons which millions of people purchase, but then again this is Barbados still not there yet.

      Cyan Jada I don’t know
      I do know in Grenada no minors face can taken in photo or filmed either it is illegal. Something about protecting minors
      Like I said I don’t know what is right here laws here are confusing at best

    It’s not always fair to say that the girls go “ Manning”.

    When I was young and my mom was on my case… I’d think of leaving too. But the thought of returning and getting more licks was worst.

    Sometimes these kids leave after something is happening at home. They are told to leave, they feel neglected or unwanted, they might be victims of all kinds of abuse. The parents are aware, but would never confess to what ACTUALLY caused them to leave. My nephew left his mom’s house and spent the night outside a nearby church because his mom hit him and told him to leave. All he did was to stand up against his step father . So he did… then of course the police were called to go find him. Every situation isn’t the same

      A very reasonable and realistic comment. Every story is different, and it’s sad nowadays these so called parents or women, are so neglectful

    Many reasons can be given for the absence. It is not nice to say that she gone Manning. Sometimes these little ones are under so much pressure at home or school.pray for her safe and speedy return

    speaks in an abrupt manner……….she ain’t got no manners. so remind me again why I should be wasting time looking for this one.

  31. Ossie Moore November 18, 2017 at 5:07 pm

    Cherylann Bourne-Hayes : You are perfectly right and I cannot reiterate enough how stupid bajans are when it comes to having common sense. Bajans only have common sense when it comes to ” wuking up in de streets or coming out in support of ” a fete or crop ova ” . . .among a list of other other stupid things .

    No one on the comments seem to be bothered that The Barbados Today news managers continue to describe black people like they are describing animals or slaves. An article about an RH sign a short while back drew more responses and comments than articles about black people being described in a derogatory manner.

    Bajans ! ! ! just a bunch of black cattle and that’s what King Dyal said back in the 60’s / 70’s when he used to walk through Bridgetown dressed in his purple suit , smoking his pipe and with his walking cane.

    Now the Barbados Today , the ROYAL BLACK Barbados Police force and other media outlets continue to re -echo King Dyal’s words.

    Does Kaymar Jordan and Sandy Deane ( Barbados Today Mngrs. ) realize that the very same descriptions that they and the B’dos Police are giving out are pointing back to themselves also ?

    Large nose , broad flat forehead , thick lips , protruding teeth , large eyes , dark complexion , bow legs , round head etc , etc.

    It seems to me like a description of the staff at the Barbados Today newspaper ( with the exception of Peter Harris ) and the entire Barbados Police force .

    I’m sure that animals would describe black people in B’dos a lot better that black humans in B’dos can describe themselves.

    • hcalndre November 19, 2017 at 3:29 am

      Ossie; the only thing that is missing from their description is the length of her tail.

    instead of social workers visiting some schools, a school like princess Margaret needs a psychologist.I have visited that school on two occasions ,a lot of those girls up there or not girls, they getting on like big women,& they are very open to adult behavior, instead of judging them, we need professionals to help them.that is the problem, the people who can change things doing NOTHING, & our young people on the road of doom

  34. gsmiley November 18, 2017 at 8:24 pm

    Ossie Moore I ask again . Are you the real Ossie?

    Oh and by the way describe yourself for me during your next installment.

    I am dying to hear it.

    Sorry, Barbados parents have lost control of their children. Why? A once well-behaved society is now gone loose. I feel that the older men with a few dollars in their pockets are luring the little away from home. When I was a little girl going to school, I used to see the older men drive up in their expensive cars and encourage the girls to get in. Some would get in the cars, others didn’t. Predators.
