Mother in search of her daughter who’s been missing for 4 days

Melissa George of Portsmouth is pleading with the public for help in locating her daughter Kernelle Benjamin, who was last seen four days ago.

George told Dominica News Online (DNO) that her 18-year-old daughter was last seen in the Chance area on Wednesday, May 24, 2023, and to date no family members or acquaintances have seen or been able to contact her because she does not own a cell phone.

She says a missing person complaint has been made at the Portsmouth Police station.

George urged anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of her daughter, who is also the mother of a one-year-old, to call her at 1 767 2450705/2951706 or call their nearest police station.

    I’m of the belief that most of these crimes are being committed in Dominica by strangers and foreigners. Get rid of them. Dominicans are nice people but for the past 23 years there have been many Wolves among the Sheep. Most of them go about without ID and address. Who’s to be blamed for this chaos in Dominica?

      I am of the belief that most of these crimes are being committed by Dominicans that are connected in one way or another with that ruling party. They have got Card Blanche in DA.

    Boy those news there now a days raising a lot of questions though as a human being we have to show some humanity. But an 18 year old, with a child, she doesn’t have a phone and she missing but last seen around Chance? Boy you see that country called Skerritica? Boy let me not say more because Dominica is not real and strange things are happening in this unreal country according to Roosevelt Skerrit himself

        Perhaps you need to put on your spectacles and read again yourself. Hopefully this time you would make it past the headline.
        I too hope she is found……

      Stop being a damn as. hole. Where does Skerrit come in? You telling me now that Skerrit has to be responsible for the whereabouts of all kids today? Boy, go get a decent education and stop being a downright as.hole.

        Who mentioned Skerrit? You are hallucinating! You are high from that red kool aid. You overdosed on it again. I really pity you and your madness. Your first name isn’t Roosevelt by any chance, ds?

    Someone has to know the whereabouts of this young lady. Let the whole of society combine our efforts and prevent this daughter of the soil from becoming another dubious statistic.

    Too many people are going missing in Dominica. We need to become a closer knit and more caring society. It should start with those who put themselves up for political power to manage the affairs of the country.

    LEADERSHIP MATTERS! When the head and government of any country are ultra selfish, aloof, and insensitive, apathy permeates the whole of society.

    I hope this young child would be found soonest unhurt.

      Ibo, stop being an as. hole. Where does Skerrit come in? Leadership begins in the house that is where parents are supposed to be with their kids and to know their whereabouts. This is not Skerrit’s responsibility. You are driving me crazy with your nonsense about Government Leadership. My Daughter’s whereabouts is my responsibility to know where she is, with whom she is and where she has gone to. Not Skerrit or Biden’s responsibility. Stop that hate and nonsense of yours. Then you have those blue monkeys giving you thumbs up. You are pissing me off with your garbage. Are you an as. hole?

        The country takes on the way, attitude and demeanor of the ruler. If the head is corrupt and criminally minded so does the rest of the country.

        Parents, teachers, preachers, community leaders, politicians all have a moral responsibility to guide and ensure the young keep on the straight and narrow road. Parents can’t be everywhere with their children 24/7.

        It takes a village to raise a child. The man at the helm of government has to be a role model for the children. Roosevelt is a rotten, good-for-nothing example for the children.

        Dog Molester, you’re still smarting from the truth I penned about you. Instead you heed my advice and sign up for reading and spelling classes, you are edeavoring exact your pound of flesh by attempting to belittle me.

        Try as hard as you do to hurt me it won’t happen. The only way someone can hurt me with words if I give them permission.

        Go and grab a book with a list of basic sight words (but was. have. with what she they of).

      • May 30, 2023

        Ibo is an a..hole. He wants to shift responsibility of children from their parents to Skerrit. He would like to see Skerrit every day/night go knock at every door in Dominica and ask whether their daughter home, their son home. De man is a lunatic, de man is loco.

    Sorry to hear that, my heart goes out to the family. It’s⏳️time to legislate how dark the TINTS can be on vehicles except law enforcement. Even though legislators like windows and windshields totally dark-themed. People will only see a little of your zaféh as very dark tints are a hazard for general public.
    And no, I am not off topic.
