Police authorities in Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) are searching for a 19-year-old female from St Ignatius, Region Nine, who went missing on Friday from a bar located in Region Seven.
Anisa’s aunt, Elizabeth Betty Adolph, related to MTV News Update that she last spoke to her on Wednesday after she called and informed her she was doing well. Days after, she received another call on Saturday around 02:00h that her niece had gone missing on Friday.
According to Elizabeth, her niece’s boss told her that Anisa left with two other young women to go and sell perfume at Martin Landing, which is one and a half hours by boat from Tamakay, Papishu Landing.
The boat driver who took them to the location had a specific time to pick them up, but when he returned, all three women were intoxicated and refused to go in the boat, so he left them there.
“The owner of that bar where they were, told him to leave Anisa, because she was the one who said they were more intoxicated, to leave her in her room inside the Martin Landing bar. So he decided to come away without any of the girls because they were intoxicated.”
She further explained that Anisa’s boss received a phone call around 01:00h on Saturday morning from the police station who told her that they have two of her workers, but one of them is missing.
“The boss lady for Anisa went up there the next morning and inquired what happened, and they said they last saw her in the dance hall. That was the last view of her between the girls. The boss lady kept inquiring and that was all they could tell her.” Elizabeth said Anisa’s brothers and father were devastated by the news of her disappearance. “We just hope that she’s alive somewhere”
Divisional Commander for Division Seven, Dion Moore on Thursday told MTV News Update that the search continues for Anisa.
“We still continue the search, we are working with a family member, at the same time we’re looking for two persons. we’re actually looking for a male and a female.”
“We have some persons who we are speaking with and they are assisting with the investigation,” Commander Moore said.
