A 14-year-old girl whose father was murdered days after she went missing has been found by police at a mall in Chaguanas.

Police say the girl was in the company of a 25-year-old man.

The girl's mother, Rehana Singh, had made an emotional plea for the girl to return home, after father Vishnu Persad was shot dead at the family’s home at Mahabalsingh Trace, Navet Village, Rio Claro, on Saturday. 

She had gone missing after leaving home to go to school last Wednesday. 

After the teenager did not return home, her parents went in search of her in Mayaro after they got information that she left school in the company of a 25-year-old man, who had worked with her father in the past. 

Officers are currently questioning the man.

They are also looking for evidence linking the killing of the girl's father Vishnu Persad, to her disappearance days earlier. 

Two male relatives of the suspect, aged 26 and 17, were detained by police on Sunday and were released on Monday after being interviewed by officers.
