“Please come back home,” a weeping Lydia Hinds, mother of 16-year-old Nicole Lezama, said yesterday as she appealed for the safe return of the teen who has been missing since Saturday.
Hinds fears something bad has happened because her daughter always returns calls and never leaves home without her permission.
Lezama, a Form Three student of San Fernando East Secondary, left her home at Picton Street, Diamond Village, at around 10.30 am on Saturday to go to the library in San Fernando. When she did not return home by 4 pm, Hinds became worried and began calling her daughter’s cell phone.
“I was about to leave to go to work. I called her phone and it was switched off. She never do that before, she would have it on silent. Even if her phone not working, or she have no money on it, she would find somebody and use their phone to call me,” she said.
Hinds said her daughter, who has a twin brother and three other siblings, had no problems at home and had no reason to run away.
“I just want to tell her to come back home. We are missing her. Please come back home if she’s out there,” she said.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the missing teen is asked to contact the San Fernando Police Station or the nearest police station.
