Anisha Young’s Family Getting Desperate

Just before News Five, the family and friends of missing woman, Anisha Young, congregated at the Queen Street Police Station when word spread that her boyfriend was being released from custody. He has been held for forty-eight hours following the disappearance of the twenty-three-year-old woman. Anisha went to a Christmas party on Saturday and left to socialize at a nightclub. It is after leaving that nightclub in a taxi with her boyfriend that she was never heard from. As days go by, her family fears the worst. They have been organizing searches on the highways and places where they suspect that her body may have been dumped. Emotions were running high late this evening as the crowd waited at the police station. Her cousin, Sheree Salgado told News Five that they desperately need help to cover more ground in the search for the missing young woman.

“We went into areas like the eight miles and so forth from the little bit of tips that we got today, but we came up with nothing.  We are out here right now at the police station because we know that Mister Fortune forty-eight hours is up. We want to know right now what the police will do because he was the last person that Anisha was seen with on that morning. Right now we are getting upset because nobody is trying to reach out to us, the family. None of the N.G.O.s—COLA—nobody is trying to reach out. I clearly remember when Kelvin went missing, these people were out there in hundreds. Now, the only people that are out there hunting for a female is us, the family. Where’s the help? Where’s the love? Weh part fi we country di go? So we need help. We di family need assistance, we need people to come. We held a vigil last night at six-thirty. A few family members and friends showed up and we are thankful for that. But like I said, we alone as the family can’t do it. Nobody; nobody had reached out to us to offer their assistance. We are begging for assistance, we are begging for manpower, we are begging for you guys to get in contact with the family. Please get in contact with the family and come out and help we search. We will be out on the road again tomorrow. We have no leads. We are just going by what people are telling us. We are getting frustrated, we are getting exhausted and so please I am asking.  She is a woman, she is a female; please unu come out and assist us. Today fi we and tomorrow fi somebody else and we definitely will be out there. Today is day three; this is not the norm for her to do this, so we are fearing the worst, but yet still keeping the faith.”


If you would like to assist with the search, you can meet up at the family’s residence on Lindo’s Alley at nine-thirty on Thursday.
