Fourteen-year-old Corinth Secondary School student, Joshua Flavius, who went missing since Sunday, October 26 returned home this afternoon.
Joshua’s mother Marceline Leonce told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) this evening that she received a call from her eldest son that Joshua returned home.
However, it is still unclear as to what led him to stay away from home that long without attempting to contact his relatives.
Marceline had told SNO earlier today that she received a text message from her son’s phone saying, “Dont call the police I am safe where I am.”
She said she received the text message yesterday after sending one stating that she will put the matter in the police hands.
Leonce told SNO that she has been calling her missing son’s phone every day, but never got a response until she sent the last message.
Joshua, who resides in Corinth with a brother, went to spend the weekend at another brother’s house in Agard.
On Sunday, Joshua told his brother in Corinth that he had to go out with friends. He sought his permission, but his brother told him to call his mother instead.
He was granted permission and told to return home no later than 10:00.p.m.
Relatives told SNO that they were fearful that Joshua might be in bad company.
