So far the search for a missing woman of Portsmouth has been unsuccessful.
Marette Baptiste was last seen on January 20 and her father, Marley Baptiste, told DNO on Friday morning efforts to locate her will continue.
“So far the search has been unsuccessful but we are not giving up,” he said. “We are continuing to search for her and hoping and praying that she is safe.”
On Thursday a search effort, involving the police, the Cadet Corp and family members, was mounted on Segment 11 of the Waitukubuli National Trail, near where she was last seen.
“This morning we are meeting with the Portsmouth Police to set up a team to continue the search,” Baptiste said.
He revealed that he plans on attaching a PA-System on his vehicle “to make some announcements.”
Marette was last seen on January 20 at around 5:30 pm walking from One Mile to Bourne.
She was last seen wearing a brown top, white three-quarter pants with her hair tied in a bun with a brown head-tie.
