Family seeking Monica
RELATIVES have joined police in searching for 54-year-old Monica Marshall-Wilkinson.
Marshall-Wilkinson, of Lot 129 Bagatelle Terrace, St Thomas, left home around 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday wearing a brown vest and a pair of khaki pants. The vehicle she was driving was recovered at Speightstown, St Peter, later that day.
When visited by the WEEKEND NATION at about 7 o’clock last night, Marshall-Wilkinson’s husband Michael was sitting in the silence of his garage, having recently returned home after almost an entire day of searching spots he and his wife frequented.
He said he was just “lost at sea” as to where his wife could be.
“This is 24 hours she has been missing now, so you know we are beginning to get worried. We are very worried,” he said.
He said family members were constantly searching the length and breadth of the island, including the popular St Peter area where her vehicle was found.
“I don’t know how she just vanished into thin air. I cannot believe that there has been no sighting of Monica. Speightstown was searched and nobody has reported seeing her,” he said.
The husband also indicated that the mother of two boys and a stepdaughter was dealing with a serious medical issue that resulted in her being home on sick leave.
“She is not a person who goes out; we go out together. She just goes out to church. We go exercising and take walks on the beach as a way to unwind.”
“We are hoping for the best. The neighbours have been calling me; people want to know what we want them to cook for us. Everybody is concerned and supportive,” he said.
The missing woman is about 5 feet 8 inches tall and of slim build. She has a light brown complexion, brown eyes, a long face, a long nose, black “open-styled” hair and has an erect appearance.
Anyone with information relative to the whereabouts of Marshall-Wilkinson is asked to contact the District “D” Police Station at 419-1726, the nearest police station or emergency telephone number 211. (AH)
