Family members of Shanice Jemmot are relieved now they have reunited with the rescued teenager.
Jemmot was taken to Princess Magaret Hospital for examination after police discovered her alive in the Hillsborough Estate area in St. Joseph Monday night.
Her mother Josette Paul, in very brief remarks to local media, said: “I feel happy, I jump up in the house.”
Doris Paul, Jemmot’s grandmother, was more forthright with reporters, saying she had become very stressed with Jemmot’s ordeal and had lost hope.
“I had a feeling she had die… I say Webster Edmund kill my child and he kill himself,” Paul stated.
Edmund was supposedly with Jemmot during the 40 days she had gone missing.
Paul said she never stopped thinking about her granddaughter.
Jemmot was expected to remain at the Psychiatric Unit for evaluation for at least 48 hours.
