UPDATED: Missing teen returns home safely

Joshua Flavius

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.

  1. it sounds like the momma ran away first, the brothers have their own lives to live, and the boy,s happiness is only with the horses, so logically he,s been hiding among the horses or riding to america to find his momma.

  4. The police needs to be aware of these young men that are leaving their mothers home for school, get to town and go to WILTONS YARD, remmove their school uniforms are are used by some disgusting drug pusher to do their dirty work. I hope this is not the case with this young boys. THE POLICE TAKE NOTE GO IN THIS PLACE ON SCHOOL DAYS YOU CAN SAVE THE LIFE OF ONE OF THESE YOPUNG MEN. FATHER GOD HELP THESE YOUNG BOYS. They are jusrt babies, 15, 16, for the eldest about 19. People of this land stop comdeming the children and pray for them and love them to save their lives.

  5. 14 years old? He would get a good licking from me. In as much as some children may be going though stuff which they don't talk about, others are downright manish and womanish and don't like their parents or guardians to tell them what to do. They think that they are already all grown up. They don't take advice and will not listen to their parents. They are hard headed and openly rude. Some even raise their hands on them curse their parents. Some children may runaway because they have a problem but others are downright disobedient.

    • REMEMBER KIDS USUALLY LEARN EVERYTHING THEY DO FROM THE ADULTS.
      YOU HAVE TO GIVE RESPECT TO GET RESPECT,, KIDS ARE NOT BORN RUDE.
      IF YOU RAISE YOUR KIDS CURSING AROUND THEM ,THEY OR MORE LIKELY GONNA DO THE SAME.IF A COUPLE IS RAISING A CHILD AND EITHER MOTHER OR FATHER DISRESPECT EACH OTHER ,THE CHILD WILL DO THE SAME ,, AND IF YOU HAVE A HABIT OF EMBARASSING YOUR CHILD IN FRONT OF COMPANY OBIOUSLY HE OR SHE MAY HATE YOU.

  6. If he was my son, when I was done with his ass, he would never think of doing that shit again....wasting law enforcement officers time and disrespecting his parents and country....yeah right.....Mwen tay ka bah lee yonh volay uh katyeah'e.....leer mwen fini ayepee'e....pa mem lameer kee tay kahii say bahway'ee......these children do too many things and they are not held accountable....and if they were also holding parents responsible for their children's behaviour....more parents would be serious about how they raise their children....period!!

  7. This is happening way too often,children go missing for days, and then return home and that is it,things just die there,no investigation is carried out into y and where the child spent the week or so,at least we are not aware cus no arrest are made or follow up on the matter.

  9. Some folks don't like to conform to the norm of society so no matter how hard to try they will keep the company of those who will help them on. Teenage years are the most difficult years to control in a child. Some folks thinks they're invincible & no one can stop them.

  12. Thank god he returned home safely... But we as lucians like to stay on the outside and speculate... How could u assume that there is something wrong with the family.i dont kno the ppl but we kno very well, that when we have kids.. And they reach that age group 13-16, they're in their rebellious stage. They want to do their own thing and have their own way, we now as parents have to figure out a way to guide them, speak to them and sometimes if we have to use tuff love then thats what have to be done.i read a comment which states everyday he is on the feild instead of at skool, why dont u the individual find out from him what is the reason he id not at sko and if there is something i can do to help then do it ... If yall notice there's a problem why not try to be part of the solution instead of adding to the problem.

  14. Joshua's mom should seek help for this child and herself as well from pastors, police, tees hers, ministries, whatever it takes to help this little boy

    The fact that she texted him when he didn't answer her many calls, and only responded when she mentioned contacting the police says to me he has done that many times before

    Today it's staying away from home and keeping bad company, then it's stealing and becoming a menace to everyone, and God forbid ending up in prison or dead.

    I believe there is still time rescue to this boy but act quickly

    To Joshua: please stay in school and stay away from the friends who encourage you to be delinquent. Your brothers seem to care - make them proud. God bless

    • She is not around to do so . . . he has been without parental supervision for many years (what you will call a "barrel" child). The older brothers and sister just do (did)not have the parental skills necessary to handle him.

      Additionally, this is not his first time running away. From the time his mother left, he has taken this road. It is unfortunate that parents will sacrifice their children for the all powerful US$.
