Parliamentary Representative for the St Joseph constituency Kelver Darroux said he is deeply concerned about the disappearance of 14-year old Shannice Jemmot.
Shanice disappeared last week Thursday and despite repeated efforts to locate her, she is yet to be found.
Darroux said the disappearance of Shanice is affecting several individuals.
He said the entire Dominica Labour Party is praying for her return and is calling on anyone with information to come forward.
“It’s very sad and it’s unfortunate. I have visited the family whom I am very close to and I know what they are going through. The entire community of Layou is saddened by all of that and government is working with police to see Shanice return home,” he said.
Shanice’s uncle James Henry, who lives in St Thomas, is offering a ten thousand dollars reward for any information leading to her safe return.
He said he hopes some form of monetary reward will prompt someone to give information on his missing niece.
