“If you are harboring Shanice please return her to her relatives or the police”.
That’ is the plea coming from Police Public Relations Officer Inspector Claude Weekes who was responding to queries by the media about 14- year-old Shanice Jemmot who went missing last Thursday.
Weekes said authorities are searching for the teenager day and night.
He is also encouraging the public to come forward with any information no matter how big or small.
“We are working together with the family and we also want to appeal to anyone who is harboring her to please release her to the police or to her family,” he said.
Shanice’s grandmother Dorris Paul has commended the police for their work over the past four days.
“They visit us all the time to let us know that they are looking for her. They are really working and I want to thank them,” she said. “They need to bring her back home. They need to bring back my child home for me. Please, Papa Bodieh bring her back for me.”
She also confirmed that the incident has also had a bad effect on the health of Shanice’s immediate family members.
“Her mother was admitted to the psychiatric unit. I have not eaten in days and her brother isn’t himself since that happened. It’s a sad time for family. Very, very sad time,” she said.
