The reigning schoolgirl body fitness queen is on the police missing list.
Shanice Reece, 18, the winner of last December’s Senior Girls Miss Body Fitness – Body Figure Contest, has gone without a trace for the last four weeks.
Inspector David Welch of the Royal Barbados Police Force told the DAILY?NATION yesterday that he had received reports Reece was missing.
Mother Tracia Worrell confirmed she had not heard from her daughter since mid-February when Shanice called by telephone, admitting she was a victim of substance abuse.
“She told me all was not well with her and that she was with friends. I am really worried. Shanice is the second of my children, but has strayed since moving out from home.
“If she is crying out for help, she should come home. I don’t want anything to happen to my daughter,” said a despondent Tracia.
Shanice left her mother’s home in Grazettes New Road last November, days after her 18th birthday. According to her mother, Tracia was staying at friendsin Black Rock, and quickly after resided briefly in Haynesville, Deacons Farm and Wellington Street.
“She has lost her way, but I hope she recognizes that her family is looking for her and is in position to make contact with us.“Shanice may have left home last November because she just wanted to be out there and probably got caught up in bad company,” Tracia added.
A few days after leaving home, Shanice, representing St Lucy Secondary,  stepped on stage at the National Sports Council’s Mr Schoolboy & Miss Body Fitness Championships at the Lester Vaughan School and prevailed in a riveting fitness contest.
With remarkable composure she showcased tight, well toned legs, thighs, and lean muscle mass to edge out second-placed Rebecca Charles of St James Secondary and Rashida Gill of The Lodge School (third).
Shanice is a sister of flamboyant dancer Charles Reece, who got his big break last year at the 2010 Barbados Music Awards where he performed in front of Michael Jackson’s father Joe Jackson, and  displayed dance moves that very closely resembled those of the musical icon.
“My daughter has talent. Shanice represented St Lucy on the track and was good in the 400 and 800 metres. She has it in her to come back and make her mark,”?Tracia added.
