A frantic search for a woman of Laborie whose mother fears she is dead continued in earnest this morning.

Saadia Byron, 32, of Black Bay, Laborie, was reported missing since last Thursday evening.

A condom, a stone, human faeces and her underwear were discovered about 25 metres from her home where she lives with her mother and other family members. One family member said there was a bit of blood in the bushes but another said there was none.

According to her mother, Georginia Byron, sometime before 8 p.m. on Thursday someone spoke to Saadia via cell phone and she (Saadia) told the person that she was on a minibus, coming from Vieux-Fort and heading to Laborie.

The area where her belonging was found.

Her mother said sometime after 8 p.m. she heard dogs barking around the same area where her daughter’s belonging was found, but it did not raise an alarm because it was not unusual for dogs to be barking in such a way during that time of the night.

Georginia said it was a friend who led her to the scene where her daughter’s belonging was discovered. She said she then called her daughter’s cell phone which rang for a while and then went to a voice recording message which said the person she is trying to reach is unavailable.

“I searched the whole area looking for Saadia but I can’t find her. She is dead…” Byron told this reporter in an interview.

“At least they should of leave the body for me to see…” she grieved.

Saadia’s home

According to Georginia, her daughter would always tell her where she is going and would return the time she promises to do so.

Saadia, a mother of three, is described as a quiet and friendly person by her family and friends.

“Saadia don’t look for trouble with anybody. It’s really sad…” a resident said.

Yesterday the police carried a search in the vicinity of her home but to no avail.

In the meantime, family members, friends and neighbours are currently combing the area in search for the missing woman.

Police are continuing their investigations into the matter.

  8. Do yourll ever read before making those damn ass comments. Did the news ever say she spoke to the mother to say she was on a bus. Read!!!!!!!! For Christ sake man. To the family, may you find closure and now is the time to be strong for one another.


  9. This story is so incomplete by the mother : she was on a bus going home when she got a phone call, QUESTION: HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT,WHERE YOU ON THE BUS WITH HER?
    you never said whether she got home and left again and what time did she leave, but you say she is missing.give the complete story to the reporters and the reporters should not publish an incomplete story like this.


  10. It's amazing how clueless and incompetent our officers are. You have so much proof in this case, including a person of interest and u guys can't solve this case yet. This is so disappointing. Nothing works in this little island. No wonder people are talking the law into their own hands.


    • Seriously? Has the DNA or other evidence tied the person of interest to the scene. #WhatYouSayWhenYourPhoneIsSmarterThanYou


  11. There will be no rest for the wicked....smh...Why would someone want to hurt Saadia???Can't even imagine what the family is going through, especially her mother...
