Hunt for runaway girls
Four girls who went missing from the St Dominic’s Children’s Home in Belmont may have been assisted by staff, police said yesterday.
The girls who were identified as Angel Farrel, 16, her sister Niana, 15, Parbatee Ragbir, 15 and Sumintra Jaikaran, 16, were last seen on the compound on Wednesday at about 11.30 am.
Police said they had information that the girls were headed to Sangre Grande.
The girls were reported missing to the Belmont Police Station by an employee of the home identified as Crystal Hospedales.
Angel is of mixed descent, five feet six inches tall and slim built, with a dark complexion, and her sister, Niana, is also of mixed descent with a brown complexion and slim built.
Ragbir is of East Indian descent, slim built, light brown in complexion and has short black hair. Police said she has a foreign accent.
Jaikaran is of East Indian descent, wears glasses, is five feet six inches tall, medium built, dark brown in complexion and has short black hair.
A police source told the T&T Guardian “We have cause to believe that these girls were assisted by an employee. We also received information that they had a vehicle waiting for them.”
Anyone with information on their whereabouts are asked to call 800-TIPS or contact the police at 555, 999, 911 or the nearest police station.
Efforts to get a comment from officials at the home proved futile as all calls and messages went answered.
