Salina was ‘hiding in some bushes’

LAUREL V WILLIAMS Friday, April 21 2017

SALINA Sanchez, the 16-year-old girl who was reported missing by her mother on Tuesday, was not abducted as initially believed by her relatives after she failed to return home after a trip to a nearby bakery.

Instead, the Siparia resident, a form four student, told police yesterday that she spent the two days hiding alone in some bushes behind her home.

Sanchez’s mother Anjela Ramlakha confirmed that her daughter emerged from the bushes yesterday and subsequently went to the Siparia Police Station.

She said Sanchez went into hiding after she discovered a text message on Sanchez’s phone. Ramlakha said Sanchez was fearful of the repercussion in the event a male relative had learnt about the contents of the text message.

“We are just glad she (is) fine,” Ramlakha said.

Newsday asked if Sanchez had any visible marks of insect bites. Ramlakha responded: “Her skin seemed fine.” On Tuesday at about 1.30 pm, Sanchez left her Syne Village to purchase an item from the bakery. When she failed to return home, relatives searched for her but she was nowhere to be found. All calls to her phone went unanswered.

Siparia police are continuing investigations.

Meanwhile, police are calling on members of the public to assist them in locating 15-year-old Akiede Thomas who is a ward of the St. Jude’s Home for Girls. Her mother Leann Alexander of Embacadere, San Fernando, said relatives last saw her at the house at about 8.30 am on Wednesday. At about 1 pm, Alexander reported her missing to San Fernando police.

Thomas was last seen wearing a pair of black three-quarter pants and a pink top. She is of African descent, five feet tall, stockily built with short black hair and of dark brown complexion, police said Anyone with information on her whereabouts can contact the nearest police station or 800-TIPS, at 555, 999 or 911.
