Antigua: Missing without a trace


LOOP CARIBBEAN: Each year thousands of people appear to ‘disappear off the face of the earth.’

In 2021, 521,705 persons were reported missing in the US.

In little Antigua-only 108 square miles with a population of around 100,000 – it is surprising that a number of persons have vanished and years later their families are still without answers.

Here are a few such individuals …

The last time 74-year-old Hyacinth Gage was seen was on May 7, 2019, by one of her daughters who left her at Mount St John’s Medical Centre to undergo some routine blood tests.

  1. Have they found shemar? So much devastated families. My prayers go up to God on their behalf.

  2. Can someone please advise of a group/ person that is involved in finding these missing people. I don’t mean the police. I believe I read an article on the ANR that focused on a woman who is involved in finding the missing. I would be happy to help in any small way that I can. If there is a group/ person who works on this alarming issue, I would like to help.

    This seems to be a dirty secret on the Island. It must not be.

    What about Shamar Harrigan? No news about this child. My heart has been with his family since he went missing. I wish them support and do not need insensitive details from the media, but why no word?

  3. What about the young lady that went missing at Jabbereock. The boyfriend , the guy Simon the medical student was found dead. He father worked at CIBC bank and then finance advisor to UPP.
