The Anti Kidnapping Unit is investigating the disappearance of a central Trinidad woman who left home on Tuesday to visit a male friend in Chaguaramas and has not returned home.
Chelsea Mohammed, 20, told the Newsday yesterday that she last heard from her mother Anita Mohammed, 45, at about 8pm on Tuesday.
“She called me and said she had gone to Chaguaramas to lime with a friend and she was going to stop in the grocery and then come straight home,“ Chelsea said.
”She would usually send me a picture and the name of a person if she was going out with them, but she didn’t send anything on Tuesday. I didn’t even know she was going out until she called to say she was coming home.”
Mohammed lives at Rafael Road, Freeport with her 19-year-old son and Chelsea.
According to a police report, Mohammed’s black Toyota Hilux, registration TCU 2658, is also missing and persistent calls to her cell phone since Tuesday went to voicemail. Chelsea has even searched Mohammed’s social media accounts for clues as to her whereabouts.
“I went through all her messages. We even tried tracking her phone but we haven’t been able to find anything yet.”
With just three days left to Christmas, Chelsea is praying her mother returns home safely. The family has also made contact with Mohammed’s employers, but to no avail as regards her whereabouts. The names and telephone contacts for a man whom Mohammed had been in contact with has since been passed on to the police.
“We have been trying to be as helpful to the police as we could be, but we don’t know where to start to look because she has never gone this long without calling us before. Since we haven’t heard any news, we don’t know how to react, its so surreal.
She does not do things like this, we are always in contact with each other because it’s just the three of us, since my father died four years ago. When she last called me, she didn’t sound upset or panicked, so I didn’t even think anything was wrong.”
Members of the Freeport police station have confirmed a missing person’s report was filed regarding Mohammed’s disappearance. Anyone with information is being asked to contact the Anti Kidnapping Unit at 679-3165, Crime Stoppers at 800-TIPS or any police station.
