Shanice Jemmot still missing, reward offered for her safe return

Shanice Jemmot

Four days after Shanice Jemmot was reported missing, she is yet to be found.

Shanice, who lives with her at Clark Hall, Layou, did not come home from school last Thursday and it appears she has disappeared without a trace.

This has prompted her uncle, James Henry, to offer a ten thousand dollars reward for any information leading to her safe return.

“We are not hearing anything and I am offering ten thousand dollars for her safe return,” Henry, who lives in St. Thomas, told Dominica News Online (DNO). “There seems to be no progress and it is really tough. We just don’t know what to do.”

He said he hopes some form of monetary reward will prompt someone to give information on his missing niece.

“Deliver her to us,” Henry pleaded. “I really want to know my niece is safe. I am willing to pay the money. Just contact us. Somebody, please contact us.”

Henry said he can be reached directly at 340-642-2685.

The police, the Welfare Division and other officials are continuing their search for the young lady.

It is reported that the Shanice’s mother has fallen ill because of the incident.

If anyone knows the whereabouts of Shanice Jemmot they should contact the Welfare Division at 266-3080/266-3020 or the nearest police station.

    February 21, 2011

    To the mother::Please turn to God ,for he is your source of strength and he will give you hope. With man all things are impossible ,but with God all things are possible. There is nothing my God cannot do. He is all powerful and He is most understanding, He’s longsuffering and
    He cares for you. Don’t let down your faith but pray a prayer that comes from deep within you. The Lord hears you and is always willing to help but only if we turn to him completely he will never refuse. To her friends and relatives: Please pray with and for her that she remains stong and that she will not be too depressed. Take her to a specialist for help and ask the Lord for his holy spirit to comfort her in her destress.
    If there are other kids do the same .Stay as one and pray together for strength to go through this time of depression.

    To the public: Let us join prayers asking the Lord to cover his child with his blood that nothing bad should happen to her. Dear God bring her home to her family safe ;thats where she belong.Iif she is afraid or depressed, comfort her and give her hope that she will be safe again with her love ones.
    wherever she is never leave her side but stay close to her heart; Lord do a miracle and let your glory reign. Shine your way through Father and we trust that this young daughter of yours will be safe home .AMEN.
    To the people who has taken her: The Lord is ready to forgive you and cleanse you from all evil that you have done. He said that He died to give you life eternal, but only if you believe in him. ask him to forgive your evil works and the strenght to bring back his daughter home safe to her parents. He hears a sinner prayers only if you are sincere. S
    o please don’t harm this young lady but let her go home to be in the arms of those who love and miss her

    my prayers are with the family of this little girl. i have 2 children and i cannot begin to comprehend how this mother feels. I will be praying for this child safe return. Now i think we should dedicate a radio program in search of Shanice. have people who last saw her call in on the program and maybe this will help . i am quiet certain that someone knows something.We have a habit of minding peoples business this is the time to mind a business . Lets help bring this child home to her family.

  19. OH God
    February 21, 2011

    Father I join my faith with the hundreds and thousands of other well wishers and those praying for her safe return. I ask you in the name of Jesus to turn this tide of evil away from this child and by extension her family. Lord Jesus just as you set Paul and Silus free I ask you to have her break free from what ever chain/s that have her bound. I pray against every physical, emotional, spiritual, relational or sexual chain that may have her bound and indifferent. Lord if she has been abducted we pray that you revolutionalize the thinking of her captors of if it’s her own doing, I ask you in Jesus’ name to bring this beautiful daughter, sister, friend, student, grand daughter back to her right mind. I pray against every evil thought and every imagination that seems to exhalt itself against the spirit of God in Jesus’ name I pray AMEN!

      February 21, 2011

      the article states that she’s gone missing with no trace, how come you accusing somebody of kidnapping her. what has really happened???

      Admin: Did you read the article carefully? It stated “its APPEARS that she has disappeared without a trace.” “Appear” is the operative word there. How could this be accusing anyone of kidnapping her.
