Ladyville Girl Stripped from Family over “Revenge”

Lucera Constantino

A twelve-year-old girl is missing. Lucera Constantino, a standard five student of Ladyville left home on last Friday in the company of a twenty-four-year-old man identified as Luis Sinturion. According to the child’s mother, she got suspicious when her daughter woke up early that morning and shortly after she got a visit from Sinturion. She told us that Sinturion gave her a false message to get her out of the house that day but when she returned her daughter was still there. But within minutes her daughter left without her knowledge.  A search in the nearby bushes led to the discovery of her daughter with Sinturion. The child pushed off her uncle who was trying to take her back home and took off with the man.  The family has not seen the minor since – but they were told that a few days later the man was in the area looking for food and water. While the matter has been reported to police, the cops have had no luck in finding the child. The mother told us that she is very concerned for her daughter’s safety because Sinturion has a history of violent and predatory behavior. She believes that the man took her daughter because a while back she took his common-law partner and his child.  Here’s what Lucera’s mother had to say about what happened.

“The last time when I see she woke up five o’clock the morning – that is on Friday. I tell she why she di wake up so early to go to school. And she just tell me ma’m I di get ready. So, I start to get suspicious of something because she neva get up like that. A couple minutes, the same man weh ker mi daughter come knock by my window.   She ask me weh the man tell me and I tell ah Lucera that is something weh nuh concern you because I mi done know something weh dah wah set up and she look on me like in an ignorant way.
