Missing granny found down cliff

Monday, May 26 2014

AFTER missing for 18 hours in the forest, a 96-year-old woman was finally rescued yesterday by officers of the Gran Couva Police Station.

Sylvia Maurice Chevalier was yesterday reunited with her daughter Mariam Pomeroy, who had reported her missing on Saturday at about 7pm from their home at Cameron Road, Gran Couva.

Pomeroy, who was interviewed by television station CNC3, said she assumed her mother had gone up to her house and she fed her dogs and did her other chores.

“When I went upstairs later I realised she wasn’t in the house,” she said.

Realising her mother had wandered off, Pomeroy telephoned the Gran Couva Police Station.

Officers searched on Saturday night but without the support of the K9 Unit had to call off the search.

On Sunday the officers were joined by the K9 unit and the Chaguanas Task Force and the search began at about 6 am Chevalier was found about seven hours later at 1.30 pm at the bottom of a 75-foot cliff from which she had fallen. Officers say she had no major injuries but just some scrapes.

She was taken to the Couva Health Facility and examined by a doctor.

Pomeroy noted that her mother had remained outside for the entire night but was glad she was in good health. She also thanked the police for a “wonderful job” and being so helpful.
