Florita Harris

Where is fifty-six-year-old Florita Harris?  On Saturday, Emmett Usher reported to police that Harris was last seen on September ninth at the upper flat of this building on Levi Slusher Street in the Jane Usher Boulevard area of Belize City. According to Usher, he left for work around seven o’clock that morning and when he returned twelve hours later, his tenant was nowhere to be found. Harris has been renting for a few months; she is not known to have relatives living in Belize and does not usually spend the night away. Usher and his family are concerned because Harris has been missing for about a week.
