Missing schoolteacher’s handbag, umbrella found in Botanical Gardens

The Digicel Umbrella and the handbag believed to belong to Nygozi Goodman

A woman’s handbag and an umbrella believed to be the property of missing St Stanislaus College teacher Nyozi Goodman, who has been missing since July 6, were found at the back of the Botanical Gardens yesterday afternoon.

Goodman, 34, vanished without a trace after she left a basketball game at the National Gymnasium on Mandela Avenue 14 days ago.

The handbag and umbrella were found at approximately 4pm, an hour after the search party of 10 commenced a search. The search was led by social activist Mark Benschop.

Goodman’s mother, Carol Greene, who was present when the bag was found, could not confirm that the bag belonged to her daughter, but said the umbrella looked like Goodman’s. “She has so many bag,” Greene said. However, two colleagues of Goodman stated that that they had seen her with a bag similar to the one found.

Speaking to Stabroek News, her brother Nestor Thompson related that Goodman left her residence on July 6, to attend the event but no one was aware of what she was wearing and whether or not someone was with her. Thompson said that after the game his sister told her students that they could leave and that she was waiting on someone to pick her up.

He said that all attempts to contact his sister had proved futile and though he hopes for the best he is worried about her.

Goodman is dark brown in complexion and approximately 5 feet, 4 inches tall. Persons who may be aware of her whereabouts are asked to contact Thompson on 692-4526.
