Police in St. Vincent and the Grenadines are soliciting the assistance of the public in locating Bequia teen who has not been seen since Dec. 29.

Sarana Aberdeen, 16, of Paget Farm, Bequia, was last seen on Dec. 29, 2018 at 8:45 a.m. when she left home for Port Elizabeth to braid her hair.

She is 5 feet 6 inches tall, of medium build, with scars on both legs and light brown in complexion. She also has “knocked-knees”.

At the time of leaving home she was dressed in a white, fitted t-shirt, multicoloured dragon pants, pink and white slippers and was carrying a light-brown leather bag. 

She has an “up-street cane row” braided hairstyle, but because she left home to braid her hair, her hair-style may have changed.

Police are asking anyone with information about Aberdeen’s location to call the Officer-in-charge of Grenadines Division, Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of Crime at Telephone +1784-456-1339 or +1784-457-1211 ext. 217, the Officer in charge of CID/CRO/MCU at +1-784-456-1810 or 457-1211 ext. 216, 220 or any police station.

Calls would be treated confidentially, police say.
