(SNO) – A teen has returned home, less than an hour after our newsroom ran a story in which her mother sought the public’s assistance in locating her.
Shirley-Ann Rene has informed St. Lucia News Online that her daughter, 14-year-old Vernelle Rene, “has come home”.
“She just arrived. I’ve called the police and they told me to take her down (to the Central Police Station),” the mother said.
Our news team is happy that Vernelle is home and hope that she assists her mother in resolving issues.

A Belair mother is seeking the public’s assistance in locating her daughter, 14-year-old Vernelle Rene, whom she last saw on Saturday, June 9, 2018 before she left home for work.
“I was at work whole Saturday. I came home after 8 p.m,” said.
The mother also told St. Lucia News Online that this is the first time the teen, who attends Sir Ira Simmons Secondary School, has gone “missing”.
She believes her daughter ran away because she is unable to do what she wants, particularly keeping a boyfriend. Her mother said she is under-aged and she would not allow that under her roof.
According to the mother, she has been receiving reports that her daughter was seen in Sarrot, Belair, and Morne d’Or.
When asked to describe the clothing her daughter was wearing when she was last seen at home, Shirley-Ann said this is irrelevant because each time her daughter was reported seen, she was wearing a different attire.
Shirley-Ann also pointed out that her daughter did not bring any extra clothes with her.
“All her clothes is home.”
The mother said it is obvious that her daughter is bathing at someone’s home and wearing their clothes.
The police has been notified.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the nearest police station.
