The family of Jayleena Titus, the seven-year-old who is believed to have drowned after a mishap at the seashore near the Guyana Marriott Hotel at Kingston, Georgetown, is still searching for her body.
Stabroek News was told that the girl’s family has organised a search party, which has been searching for her body since Saturday, when the mishap occurred. The Coast Guard and the police force are also assisting with the search.
The girl had accompanied her father, Richard Titus, her brother and a cousin on a fishing trip.
A relative said the family was told by the girl’s brother that while her father was fishing on the jetty, she was in the water playing. Sometime after, she ventured out towards a boat, which reportedly hit her and she went under the water. The family was told that the girl’s brother rushed to her rescue but was unable to pull her up from under the water.
