TEENAGE mom Arianna Solomon, who was reported missing by her mother Gail Garraway on Saturday, contacted her family on Tuesday to say she is in San Fernando. Arianna, 16, the mother of nine-month-old Ishmael Solomon, left her parents’ home with her child on Friday and did not return.
On Tuesday when Newsday visited Solomon’s home on John Persad Street, Freeport, Garraway said Arianna called earlier that day to say that she and her son are safe.
“I was happy to hear Arianna’s voice because I was unsure what had happened to her.”
Garraway was worried that her daughter and her grandson were kidnapped.
“With the amount of kidnapping and the high murder rate in this country I did not know what to expect when I realised Arianna and her son was gone for the entire night.”
About reporting the two missing at the Freeport Police Station on Saturday, she said, "I was so worried about their safety that I pleaded with the police to find my daughter and her child.”
Asked why Solomon did not inform her relatives of her whereabouts, Garraway said her daughter sometimes got upset with her for days at a time but she never left the home before. She hoped Solomon and Ishmael would return home on Tuesday.
