Visitor upset Emela missing

Social Share

A CANADIAN WOMAN who visits Barbados regularly is concerned about her missing friend, Emela John.

Kelly Mainhart read about John’s disappearance in this newspaper and has posted photographs of herself and the 19-year-old on Facebook.

The 55-year-old woman told the WEEKEND NATION she met John in 2011 in Oistins,  Christ Church, where she was soliciting sponsors for a school event.

The two quickly became friends and she met John’s mother, Tracy Lawrence, the following year.

“We kept in touch and I visit Barbados a couple of times a year. Emela used to call me a few times here and there.”

The last time she heard from the teenager was on September 7, when Emela informed via Facebook of her new mobile phone number. (MB)
