Valley of Peace Teen Still Missing…May Be in Placencia

Seily Jozeline Aguilar

Another minor is missing. Fifteen year old Seily Jozeline Aguilar has been missing since January sixth. She left her home in Valley of Peace early, as usual, in her Belmopan Comprehensive School uniform. She never returned home. Her mother has been frantic since, and has enlisted the aid of the Belmopan Police in an attempt to locate the minor.  Today Inspector Stephanie Grinage, Deputy Commander of the Belmopan Police Formation, told News Five that they expect to have Aguilar back home soon.

“We have spoken with the mother of the child and we are looking at a lead that the child is somewhere in Placencia. So right as we speak, the officers are liaison with the officers there in Placencia to see if we can locate the child in that area.”

“Is it a situation that there is some speculation that she is being forced against her will? An abduction or anything of that sort?”


Stephanie Grinage

Insp. Stephanie Grinage

“No, not that I am aware of.”


Mike Rudon

“But at that age, she is not somebody who can make the decision to just run away from home and…”


Insp. Stephanie Grinage

“No sir. No sir.”


Mike Rudon

“So the police would have to be involved?”


Insp. Stephanie Grinage

“Yes sir, the police would have to be involved. And missing person, we actually take very seriously. Once we get a lead, we act on it and so far we are liaison with Placencia police and check the address that we gave them and see if the child is in that area.”


Late this evening, we confirmed that police have not managed to locate Aguilar in Placencia, but will continue the search in that area.
