Melia Thomas returned to her home in Bisee, Castries about 7:50 p.m. this evening, May 11 — three and a half hours after St. Lucia News Online (SNO) published a story about her disappearance and overall behaviour.
Melia, a form two student of the Bocage Secondary School who turns 14 in just under two months, reportedly left home on Wednesday, May 3 and was not seen until this evening – the second time in two weeks this has reportedly occurred.
Her mother, 50-year-old Coletta Thomas, told SNO that she will provide more information tomorrow, as they are yet to ascertain where the minor was all this time.
In an earlier interview, the mother refused to say her daughter was missing
“I wouldn’t say she is missing. She is on her own vibes,” Coletta said. “She always goes and comes back when she feels like. She always does that.”
A close family friend, who had also contacted us about the teen’s disappearance, credited SNO for her return home.
“So word got out… thanks, could not have done it without SNO,” he said.
The family friend said they are now hoping that the teen will reveal her whereabouts and that there will not be a repeat of this behaviour.
