No trace of missing woman
After searching for more than six hours on Saturday, police are yet to find a trace of missing woman Samara Bristol.
Police public relations officers, acting station sergeant Rodney Inniss, told Nation News the extensive search, which started around 5 a.m., ended around 11:45 a.m.
“We believe the chances are slim, but we are optimistic. We will continue our searches and they will be dictated by the way the investigation goes.”
Inniss said the investigation was still in the early stages and they were hoping to get more information. He said there was a person of interest in custody.
Samara Bristol was reported missing by her mother Samantha Bristol on Tuesday.
Searches were conducted near the home in Airy Cot, St Thomas and expanded to Welchman Hall, Farmers, Vaucluse and Sturges.
Inniss said they would give the public early notice when the next search is to be conducted as some people indicated an interest in helping.
Samara, 30, who has dual Barbadians and American citizenship, was staying at Airy Cot. Her mother arrived from Queen’s, New York, on Friday.
Samara is between 5’7” an 5’8” tall, stoutly built and full breasted. She is light brown in complexion and walks erectly. She speaks with an American accent.
Her nose is pierced once, her ears have multiple piercings and her hair is in black box braids. Samara has a slightly long forehead, oval shaped eyes which appear to be puffy, a small mouth and lips and straight teeth.
It is not known what she was wearing at the time of her disappearance.
