Birth­day with­out daugh­ter

Daily Nation (Barbados) - - News -

A ST LUCY MOTHER had to cel­e­brate her birth­day on Satur­day with­out one of her daugh­ters, who has been miss­ing since last Tues­day.

Broom­field res­i­dent Car­men Matthews’ birth­day wish was to know whether her daugh­ter Rox­anne Matthews, 29, was safe. She said her daugh­ter’s own birth­day was com­ing up and she hoped by then word would be forth­com­ing.

“The last time I saw her was last Fri­day in Speight­stown when she [had an ap­point­ment]. Af­ter­wards she came and sat down with me and we talked and then she left and went along.

“It hard for me as her birth­day is on Thurs­day com­ing, Novem­ber 16 and she will be 30. We cel­e­brate our birthdays in the same month as mine is to­day (Satur­day). We go out to­gether and I even take her with me to church,” she said.

Matthews said while her daugh­ter had been born with a dis­abil­ity, “she is not a lazy child and would help me around the house with any­thing – a very, very help­ful and use­ful child”.

Po­lice re­ported Rox­anne, who lives with her boyfriend Hugh Thomp­son in Collins, St Peter, was last seen at home by Thomp­son around 6 a.m. on Tues­day.

Un­able to hold back the tears, Matthews said Rox­anne had stopped liv­ing with her since

(in­set).

March, ques­tion­ing why this had hap­pened to her. “My child ain’t de­serve this. My child is a lov­ing, lov­ing per­son and it’s very hurt­ful that I don’t know where Rox­anne is. I don’t know what to say, I don’t know what to think,” she said. Rox­anne is about five feet, five inches tall, brown com­plex­ion and is thickly built. She has an oval face, thick lips, thick short neck and is full-breasted with a pro­trud­ing stom­ach. She has her hair braided, speaks with a slur, has an erect ap­pear­ance and is in the habit of swing­ing her hands. She was last seen wear­ing blue leg­gings and a faded pink shirt.

She is known to fre­quent the ar­eas of Speight­stown, St Peter, and Broom­field, St Lucy, and can be con­sid­ered a slow learner.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion on her where­abouts can con­tact Dis­trict ‘E’ Po­lice Sta­tion at 419-1730 or 419-1731, po­lice emer­gency 211 or the near­est po­lice sta­tion. (RL/PR)
