Police on St. John, US Virgin Islands have confirmed that human skeletal remains found on the island in August 2012 have been identified as that of 21-year-old St. Lucian native Seara Samantha James, who went missing in Oct. 2011.

Reports are that the skeletal remains were discovered on Aug. 1, 2012 by someone walking a dog at Estate Adrian on St. John, and police sent a DNA sample to an FBI lab on Aug. 8, 2012.

The results were last week, however according to the Virgin Islands Daily News, “detectives contacted the family privately a few days ago and gave them the opportunity to begin to deal with their loss before releasing the information to the public”.

James was last seen in St. John, US Virgin Islands on Oct. 13, 2011. She reportedly left Castaway’s Bar shortly after 5 p.m. and was subsequently seen at the Mongoose Junction shopping center, at the Nature’s Nook fruit stand. At 8 p.m., a friend reprotedly dropped her off at the entrance to the Power Boyd residential area, near where she lives. She was never heard from again since.

At the time of her disappearance, police said she had the following tattoos: the name “Pascal” on her back, a tribal tattoo on her right arm, and a rose on her left leg. She was wearing a white t-shirt over a black tank top, and black jeans. She was carrying a black handbag containing a binder.

James moved from her native St. Lucia to St. John in the Virgin Islands about five years before her disappearance. She attended classes at the Julius E. Sprauve School and got her GED. She worked at Global Marine at the time of her disappearance. She never filled her last prescription for asthma medicine.

  9. That last sentence is confusing,did she die because of asthma or did the investigation reveal signs of trauma?...While reading this I'm getting that she was probably raped & murdered & her body dumped in a secluded area.But after reading the last sentence I don't know if it could be that she fell really sick & wondered off in search of help & maybe ended up there & passed away.
