A nine-year-old student of the Mocha Arcadia Primary School disappeared on Friday afternoon while on her way home from school and relatives have no idea where the child might be.
After school was dismissed the child, Sade Stoby, left for her Barnwell North, Mocha Arcadia home but never arrived. Several searches were mounted for the child in the East Bank Demerara village but she was not found. Her disappearance was also reported to the Mocha police outpost.
A worried Sharon Berry told this newspaper last evening that she had called relatives in a bid to find her daughter but came up empty handed. The woman said that the teachers at the school did not report to her that anyone had come and picked up the child. She said that she had been told that the child left school on foot, heading in the direction of home. She said too that her daughter walked home from school every day.
Berry said Sade who lived with herself and husband, Eric Stoby, has never gone missing before.
The Grade Four student who is brown in complexion was last seen wearing a cream shirt and burgundy uniform. Her hair was combed in two pony tails and each was tied with a burgundy ribbon. She also had a grey and black single-strap bag.
Anyone who may have seen the child or knows of her whereabouts can contact her parents on 690-1475 or the nearest police station.
