The family of kidnapped Sangre Grande businesswoman Mary Ali is offering a reward for information leading to her safe return.
Ali, a 67-year-old mother of three, was snatched on Wednesday morning as she was about to open her business – Co$$ Cutters Supermarket – at George Street, Sangre Grande. She was thrown into a grey Mitsubishi Lancer which sped off in the direction of Coalmine.
Up to late Thursday, there has been no demand for a ransom from the retired principal’s abductors.
On the supermarket’s Facebook page on Thursday, relatives asked members of the public to call 273-0123 if they had any information.
“All calls will be treated with the strictest of confidence. If you know anything or have seen anything please call or WhatsApp at this number.”
When Newsday visited the area on Wednesday, Ali’s son Anil declined to comment on his mother’s abduction. A man who described himself as a family friend told Newsday the community was badly shaken by what happened.
Members of the Special Operations Response Team, the Eastern Division Task Force, the Anti-Kidnapping Unit and the Cyber Crime Unit are involved in the investigation.
