Police in search of 12-year-old abducted from her home by ‘suspected lunatic’

Kernisha Etienne

The Commonwealth of Dominica Police Force (CDPF) is seeking the assistance of the general public, more specifically the people residing in the Warner and Belles area, in finding 12-year-old Kernisha Etienne who was abducted from a home at Warner last evening.

In a statement to the media, Assistant Superintendent in charge of the Southern Division, Leana Edwards, reported that on Tuesday 7, June, 2022, at about 11:30 p.m. Etienne was abducted by “suspected lunatic”, Kian Alexander, male adult of Belles.

Edwards said that in committing the offence, Alexander went to the home of his uncle, Laurent Joseph Bruno, and attacked him with a cutlass inflicting serious wounds to his head and face.

“Thereafter, he abducted 12-year-old Kernisha Etienne, the adopted daughter of Laurent Joseph Bruno, and disappeared with her into the bushes of Warner. Laurent Joseph Bruno was transported in a conscious state to the Dominica China Friendship Hospital (DCFH) for medical attention,” the Police Superintendent stated.

According to Edwards, an extensive search is being conducted by the police and residents of Warner for the 12-year-old and her abductor.

Edwards issued an appeal to anyone with information to call Police Headquarters at 6115100 6115158 6115165 and 6115164.

    The longer it takes to find this loving, little child, Kernisha, the chances of finding her alive rapidly diminish. No resources of the state should be spared in trying to save her if she still has the breath of life.

    For the last two mornings, on rising from my sleep, the first thing on my mind is whether or not little Kenosha was found. Each time there is no positive news I try to keep hope alive, but inevitably I am overcome with sadness and anxiety.

    One last thing I wish to mention. This sad incident should bring focus on our children. They are extremely vulnerable and should be protected and cared for like a lioness protects and cares for her cubs. These creatures would die protecting their young.

    The last thing I will say about this sad situation is, this child picture should have never been posted online because she’s a minor. It’s not like you are looking for a missing dog and you need to show the color and breed. I would not have posted it. What good has it done? The age of the child would have been enough. She has been out longer than she could survive under such man. If this man is found alive just castrate him from shaft and balls.

      They are quite happy to post pictures of the victims but very seldom post pictures of the offenders, in particular not when they in possession of the DLP party bible second edition, volume3 from 2008.

      …where is the picture of the alleged kidnapper? Where is it? In case one of us see him…? Could it perhaps be the case that he is a DLP supporter and as such has immunity? This entire police search is one of those famous SMOKE SCREENS which can be experienced in our country on a daily basis. It’s utterly disgusting.

    Don’t blame me, people. But this guy is a Monster! How would this innocent child survive if this Monster gets wild? I don’t think she’s still with us. How parents are able to bear such pain? I couldn’t celebrate my birthday (as a leader) if my country was experiencing such pain. The whole country is in pain while de AM celebrating with champagne and who knows what. As a leader, I would order all hands on deck and make sure this child doesn’t spend one night out with this Monster who is DRESSED UP ALL IN RED. You see what I see? OK, then. Many of these characters are RED PEOPLE.

    But what is the difference between those that abducted Choksi and the man that abducted this 12 year old girl? Ok I guess is a school girl and she was a minor though Peter told us at 13, 14, 15 they looking good.
    So if this man could be referred to as a lunatic then I conclude that those who abducted Choksi are Lunatics as well and seems like is lunatics that running things here and not Skerrit who claimed to be running things

      You notice that no government ministers are addressing our concerns? Warner and Campbell are laboratories but are very simple and blind. They still kiss 💋 de boy Bar-Hind regardless eem sey nah ting. Once they get 3 sheets of galvanize they alright. 3 sheets of galvanize to sell out your country. Has Skeritt send any help to these villagers where this child was kidnapped? Are there police officers in de bush searching for her? I guess the people’s tax money not going far enough. If you put 50% of the population to work, then there will be a steady flow of revenue. The passport money goes to pay for trips to Dubai, hotel expenses, spending money, and making desert 🌵 friends.

    Let’s not lose focus. This is not the time to cast blame. All our attention should be like a laser beam on finding the little one, and returning her to her family if that is God’s will.

    After the child is found let the floodgates of blame, criticisms, suggestions and advice open.

    Just looking at the photos of this little, innocent child makes my heart weeps. The little girl looks so innocent, full of life and promise, seems to have not a trouble in this world.

    Why is it that bad things seem to happen to good people so often. This world is up-side-down. So many good people are suffering while the bad ones seem to prosper. But, Karma will inevitably catch up with the WJCKED.

    This incident should propel mental illness to the fore. Too many homeless and mentally unsound people are aimlessly roaming the streets. Much more can and should be done in an effort to try and rehabilitate these people.

    The government, relatives, and civil society should combine their efforts in getting this ballooning number of vagrants in a proper institution as they are a present and growing threat to society while left up to themselves to make their homes on the streets.

      Please Ibo can we leave politics out of this for once in awhile. Pray for this child in you head to the bush like us and look for that baby. My My My… For a matter of fact mentally ill people are usally the VICTIMS. They are the one that is hurt not hurting others. Do your research. Men hearts are evil IBO. They use all kind of substance and blaming it on mental health. A true Mental person would not do that. It is either the devil has gotten into the person. He is evil because there is a true devil out there. We need to take things seriously. We are looking at all these school shootings in the USA and Republican blaming it all on Mental health. These people ar4 not mental they know how to go to the Gun store and purchase an A-15 riffle. What for. This guy with that baby in the woods is a pervert. Stop blame shifting. He is possesed with an untouched little girl. Hate to say this but I hope they put him down this is a disgrace to humanity. Poor little girl.. Let us get the monster

Would you agree then, is because Skerrit is laden with blessings from the peoples cry you are so obsessed at him?! Ibo MALAPROP France, what planet did you drop from? Certainly not one God created.

    This is one time we must put our collective efforts, both the police and members of the public, to try to locate this innocent child. I’m just praying and hoping that she would be found unharmed.. If the police have to use all of the resources available to them in an effort to find little Kernisha.

    My heart also goes out to Kernisha’s parents and the rest of her family. It has to be a most horrifying experience for them.

    May her uncle, Mr. Bruno, have a complete recovery from his injuries.
