Assistance needed in locating missing woman

Baptiste went missing on January 10
Baptiste went missing on January 20

The family of a woman from Portsmouth, who they say went missing a few days ago, are asking for assistance in locating her.

Marette Baptiste, 32, was last seen on January 20 at around 5:30 pm walking from One Mile to Bourne.

A family member said the last time Baptiste was seen she was wearing a brown top, white three-quarter pants with her hair tied in a bun with a brown head-tie.

DNO was told that Baptiste recently suffered a stroke and as a result, her right side has been “de-formed.”

Baptiste has brown eyes, is approximately five feet, eight inches tall and weighs approximately 160 pounds.

Her hair is described as “black and kinky.”

She is the sister of Miss Dominica 2010, Marcia Baptiste.

Family members are now desperately searching for Baptiste.

Anyone with information should call the Portsmouth Police Station at 445-5222; Nenette Daniel-Baptiste at 245-4721 or Carlyn Rolle at 225-5707.

    why are we so slow to react. Search parties should have been out already over 24 hours ago looking for her. What if she has suffered a another stroke that has left her with mental confusion, and she is wondering the bushes in that area, all alone, hungry confused, maybe even injured. Come on people move on with the search. Is it that we as a community don´t care. It is not common for a 30 year old to have a stroke, this young lady needs help, LOOK FOR HER PLEASE.

    Why was she walking even though it is a mile? This is still far.
    I hope she will be found safe and sound.
    Lord, please help her to return safely to her family.

      Abled people should be out in droves to search the area to find her. I am wondering if someone offered her a ride? The rest you should speculate.
      Gone are the days in D/ca when people walked for miles, all alone and nothing happened to them.
      Let us pray for her safe return.

    On behalf of Marcia Baptiste, I call to our Lord God, for the safe return of her sister.

    O God let it be that You are guiding Marette back home; or that You are leading someone or a group of people to find her. Nevertheless dear God, Your Will be done; we have no control!

    But I ask You to bless the family of Marette Baptiste with the strength they need to build abiding faith, the force that will walk them to safety from that stormy blast, which they walking through right now. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen

    Massive man hunt all through. From morning till its visible to see in the evenings.

    Keep calling out her name. In every corner and every short cut. and everywhere. Come on Dominicans we can do this. She is not alone. Start the move … We are each other’s keeper… Remember this…….get these strong able men who are not occupied at the moment and asked them to lead the search. Also persons who know the area inside out should be in the forefront of this search.. If this is well orchestrated, This lady should be found soon..a plan of action needs to be formed any ways..
    Water. Dry food(biscuits, fruits) warm blanket, medication, bandages, plaster etc.. should be with the persons carrying out the search just in case.

    If the public is moving too slow on this matter, let the church of Marette mount a massive search for this woman. One Mile to Bourne is not much distance, and a search can easily narrow the possible causes of her missing.

      Hey! SDAs from Bourne and Possie! What are you doing about your sister? Put Master guides and Pathfinders on that stretch of road and find your sister! Help is also available from the Secondary School at Glanvillia. Find your sister before the sun goes down on Friday. Make the clarion call and help will come from sister churches. FIND YOUR SISTER!!

  22. January 22, 2015

    I hope and pray that she is found safe and sound. God please guide her back home.

    January 22, 2015

    A MASSIVE man hunt should be in progress and prayer warriors and others on bending knees requesting her safety and return.

      A search, not a manhunt should be ongoing. Manhunts are for fugitives.. Hope they find her safe

      I´m sure DOM meant no disrespect in any way shape or form. It’s just that sometimes when the mind is looking for the ‘correct’ term it doesn’t always come to mind immediately. I guess that’s why the term they used Was place in parentheses, meaning it’s not exactly correct but, u get the message and sorry for any inconvenience caused.

      I suppose you meant, she walks with a ‘limp’.
