‪An 11-year-old girl who went missing from her home in Marchand, Castries this morning, has been found.

Shanice Emmanuel was reportedly seen by two women walking on a bridge in San Souci, Castries about 5:00 am.

The child’s mother, Rusina Emmanuel, told St. Lucia News Online that Shanice is now at the Human Services Dept. in good health.

The family is now trying to find out how and why Shanice left the house.

EARLIER REPORT: 11-year-old missing

A search is now underway for an 11-year-old girl who went missing from her home in Marchand, Castries in the wee hours of this morning.

Rusina Emmanuel told St. Lucia News Online that she last made contact with her daughter, Shanice Emmanuel, about 4:00 this morning.

Emmanuel said she was resting on a sofa when she saw the lights on in her daughter’s room. She said is not unusual for her daughter to use the bathroom at odd hours.

“I asked her where she was going. She told me she was changing her clothes because it (night gown) is too big. I said ‘okay’ and I turn around and fell asleep. I got up about 6:30 and I haven’t seen her since,” the distraught mother told St. Lucia News Online.

The family is unable to say what Shanice was last wearing.

According to the mother, her missing daughter shares a bed with her nine-year-old sister, who has no idea where her sibling went either.

Emmanuel described her daughter as a quiet girl who did not show any signs she was troubled. She does not believe her daughter, a student of the Carmen Rene Memorial School, ran away.

She said the girl’s father, who lives in Cacao, Babonneau, does not know where Shanice is either and has joined the search for their daughter.

The matter has been reported to the police.

  1. it may very well be that in the midst of the sleep mom did not realise that the answer her lil girl gave her did not make much sense until she woke up and found her missing. we are not always alert when we in and out of sleep, and its 24 hours and not 72 hours for someone to be classified as missing. we lucians just say anything that comes out of our mouths.

  5. To all mature St Lucians playing "God" and being judge and jury, I pray to a God higher than yourselves that you never find yourselves in a similar situation. Clueless, hopeless and showing the world how insensitive, divided and inhumane we are as a nation. Go pray for your loved ones.

  9. Thank God she's safe. Now I hope they find out what is troubling this child because I see no other reason for her to just leave unless there is something wrong.

  11. If we have nothing positive to contribute in a time like this keep silent.

    We should offer words of encouragement until we have all the facts to the matter. Judge not that ye be not judged.

  13. Yeah to wake up @ 4am to change a night gown is kind of suspicious...But Oh well I hope she is found safe & sound.

  14. Very strange. Why would you wake up from your sleep at 4:am to change your nightgown unless you wet the bed. Can't believe a mother would accept such lame excuse. The mother is the #1 suspect till she can say something which makes sense.

    • I think this type of comment is not warranted until all factors come into play.

      If we have nothing positive to contribute the best option is to keep silent. Judge not that ye be not judged.

    • Why would the mother be the number one suspect and report the matter immediately to the police. Maybe the child has wet her bed before and changed her nightgown when this happened - not an unusual occurrence for the mother at the time.
