Have you seen 14 year old Shadira Dyer?

Shadira Dyer

A fourteen year old high school student left her home on Rivero Street early Monday morning to start the school week, but she hasn’t returned home since. Her family now fears that she may have fallen victim to the crime and violence that plague Belize City Streets. But they are holding on to hope and are asking the public to be on the lookout for Shadira Dyer. Her grandmother, Jane Lambey, is especially worried because she says Shadira is a loving and well behaved teenager, who had no reason to run away from home.

Jane Lambey, Grandmother of Shadira Dyer

“She left from here seven-thirty in the morning on a pink beach cruiser bicycle in her Gwen Liz uniform because she was on her way to school—with a black shoe and her schoolbag on her way to school and that was the last time I saw her.”

Delahnie Bain

“And what day was this?”

Jane Lambey

Jane Lambey

“Monday, the fourteenth. My son went to the school and according to the school, they sent her back like ten o’clock and she didn’t come home.”

Delahnie Bain

“Is there any reason why she would have run away from home or do you think something may have happened?”

Jane Lambey

“I have no reason why she would have run away from home because I have done nothing to her and believe you, me, she is a loving granddaughter. There is nothing in the world I wouldn’t do for her. So I don’t know where Shadira is and I hope and pray that she’s listening so she can come home.”

Delahnie Bain

“Has she ever left home without anyone knowing where she’s going or anything like that?”

Jane Lambey

“No, this is the first time. Where she goes, I always know and anywhere I go I take her along so I don’t know. I don’t know what to say but she needs to come home and she knows that we all love her. It’s really rough but we’re just trying to cope with it.”

Delahnie Bain

“And no word from friends or anything that may have seen her?”

Jane Lambey

“We went to friends house and they say they saw her by the Complex building. we’ve there up to last night after two we were back there and no sign of Shadira.”

Delahnie Bain

“Anything you’d like to her if she should hear this report tonight?”

Jane Lambey

“Mama please come home. We miss you and we want you back home. [crying]”

Anyone with information on Shadira’s whereabouts can contact Lambey at 662-7241.

    I hope this one has a positive outcome. Why was this child sent home from school at 10 o’clock?

    I hope her disappearance & the arrest of the young man in the news yesterday who has the same last name as the grandmother is just a coincidence.


    So your loving granddaughter was sent to school on Monday morning, and at ten in the morning she was sent home from school, why?
    Why did you waited so long to go to the media/police to help locate your missing, loving granddaughter?
    A few months ago another girl went missing after she was seen entering a taxi, before that another teen went missing and was found murdered after she went to do errands for her mother, and the rest of murdered teens over the years still have no justice.
    I hope beyond all hope that this teen will not become another statistic. There are more than one serial killers in Belize, who’s going to stop them..


    U know this type of thing seems to be a growing trend over the last couple months or year at least. Could it be possible that we have these sick perverted monsters preying on our poor young ladies? I think the police needs to start setting up decoys and wire them and set them up as baits in those “hot” areas. We need to find a way to counteract these crimes!

    It is equally disturbing and is a great concern that whenever a young girl goes missing, there is almost NO presence of a father figure within the picture at all! Its always the moms who carry the horror of dealing with the dilemma on their own. I think Bzean men needs to stop ” laying pipe” without making a commitment to always be there for their offsprings. Its a sick trend that U men in Bze seem to enjoy doing! Man up …… grow some balls and be responsible!

    I put the blame soley on the school administration. In this day and age almost everyone has a cell phone there is no need to send a child home until a parent comes. You can easily call the parent or guardian to come to school to deal with the situation while the child stays in the principal’s office or in her classroom where she belong. We as adults have to be more responsible when dealing with children. I do home that the child returns home safely.

    I am suprise that the school is not equip with a system to announce when a child is being sent home. Here in LA a parent needs to come pick up a child under 18yrs old from any High School and there name needs to be on an emergency card. From the time she didn’t bring a parent she should have been in the principle office until a parent came to school to see what the problem was with her. I am not saying the school is at fault but no school should sent a child home without letting the parent know she is being sent home by herself during school hours at least sent her home at lunchtime with the other kids still letting the parent know. It is too dangerous in Belize City. As for the grandmother by the time 6 or 7 o’clock comes and your child or granddaughter is not home go to the police station call her friends and search for her right away someone of her friends will know especially if she has a cell phone. I have been thru this already so I know it is very stressful and she might be scared to come home because she is already in trouble at school I hope she is found as soon as possible.

    I pray that they find this young lady quick and that she is not harm in anyway!

    overall it’s really concerning about the girl, the school administration handling the departure of the girl and the grandmother waiting to give the alert at this time when it could have been done earliest would be monday night when she never showed up at home. these things are getting to be a problem for the teens and parents who need to have a lecture programm with ideas how to handle cases when teens go missing. Schools need to be more professional when sending home a kid regardless the time and age worst with the crime situation in the city and country. Is there any NGO or specialist out there reading these things to help giving talk show in the media as how to deal with this issues. Channel 5 kindly enlist a show with a specialist who can give the public a better idea of handling this cases when kids tend to go missing or things like this happen as to what to do. make it be a show after your news cast please. we need more programms that deal with family values so belizeans can get more ideas as how to be a community better than what we are.

    PRINCE MICHAELS , Men can’t “lay the pipe” just anytime, anywhere, or whoever they see around. There is always a “yes” from the other side. But I am not disagreeing the fact that men are suppose to grow up and be responsible. Shout out to that! God is watching, and I hope that she returns home vsafely!

  9. chabelli says:

    This is very disturbing indeed;the economy will need to take some blame however this nonsense of sending home kids should be cause for urgent meeting of the minister.he was the one who removed corporal punishment we need more facts on this matter

    California Kester, I truely cannot believe that belzeans have not enter the 20th century and have a better system with the schools today. And parents are not educating themselves with the Sex slaves trades and the petifiles and pimps and peverts that have been in exsistence in that country. The behavoirs of many I see to comes to no surprise. With all the cable news etc. Parents are allowing their school system to not have better communication and notification with the parents. Here we have thinks like amber alert, If my child was not home by 5 pm, I went through my phone book I kept every parent and friends cell and landlines phone numbers. I check the I.D’s of all people who came to my door looking for my kids, If you don’t want me to have a photocopy you got to go. I’ve caught a few petifiles that were27 lying that they were 17. and trying to date my three daughters and one saying he lost his green card and passportI check their hands if it look like duck it’s duck and their hand look old as mine they had to go. You can’t trust teacher now a days. Ask for degree of graduation and parents talk to your children.Find out who thir frinds are. Also have a buddy system with a another parent that you trust if you cannot communicate well with your children fell free to spy also I did anything coming into my house became mine. And meet the mothers and trust your maternal instincts moms. I keep her in my prayers…,

    Prince M. There is no men in Belize, just a bunch of little boys who think that sinking their …… in any willing hole, makes them a man….but it takes two to tango, the same applies on the other side of the isle, I see these young ladies just letting any dude all up in them, so don’t blame on the men, blame the females for opening their …….. The only reason that the women is left stuck with the offspring is because they are the ones who have to carry the child for 9 months, so logically they are the ones who will end up with responsibility, men can easily move on to the next warm, willing fool with a slit between the legs.

    Who to blame? Us, society, educational system, most of all the parents, it seems we are in a perpetual state of idiocracy in Belize and the planet, the world wide population is booming and it seems that education is not going around to a majority of humans; that is evident in Belize with the behavior of these young men slaughtering each other at the drop of a hat.

    Everyone is responsible for the insidious, infectious, bile of society – parents, educational institutions, religious institutions, government…everyone, however we were subjects of despots not too long ago and our colonial mentality makes us think its not our responsibility for our behavior…we are becoming savages.
