Hon Akierra Missick reminded that Alicia, also known as ‘Leecie,’ was missing since Wednesday and was seen a couple of times on the weekend. The DP said she has been in conference with both the Police and the Social Welfare Department on the case, informing that a command post has been established to see the 15 year old returned home. I quote the Minister now: “At this moment, the command post has established two arms, one being an investigative arm and the other being a support and counseling arm. Both arms will work in tandem to bring about a swift and lasting resolution to this matter.” The Minister turned her attention, in that press release issued earlier today, to Alicia directly when she said: “Leecie, if you are hearing or seeing this please, I repeat please – contact the social welfare department on 338-2681…” Discretion was also promised by Minister Akierra Missick.
