Two men were detained by police over the weekend after lawmen found in their company, a mentally ill woman who was reported missing.

Police confirmed to OBSERVER media that 25-year-old Anniel Robin was located on Saturday, based on a tip-off a day after she left her Swetes home.

Police Public Relations Officer Inspector Frankie Thomas said that Robin was found in the company of the two men in St Johnson’s Village early Saturday.

He said the men were being held to “assist” the investigations and had not been charged.

Moments after she was found, her bother Jamil Robin spoke to OBSERVER media and said the family is thankful she’s safe.

“I am happy to know that she is okay, relieved. I felt deep down that she was somewhere safe. God is a good God. Family members would have prayed so it was only a matter of time that we got the call that she was safe,” he said.

The young man said that while his sister sometimes suffers from short periods of “anxiety” and “emotional distress” nothing like this has happened to her or the family, before Friday.

“Normally, she is home on her own. She is on medication and when she takes it, she is typically okay by herself so we wouldn’t have any issues like that with her,” he said.

Meanwhile, the police continue to search and

appeal for help to find 26-year-old Vincia James. She left her workplace, Dixie Betting Company, around 1 pm on April 7 and never made it home. Her relatives have not heard from her since either.

The police, along with her family and members of the community came up empty handed after they searched several areas such as Burma, New Winthorpe’s (her area of residence), Parham, government-owned farm Diamond’s Estate and Devil’s Bridge for days to find her.

They say they will not stop looking until she is found. A $16,500 reward is being offered by the police, relatives and a local businessman to anyone who provides information that helps locate her.

Meanwhile, as relatives of Bathlodge resident Craig Richards continue to search for him since he disappeared on March 22 and blood was found in his home, the government is offering EC $10,000 as a reward for information to find him. His family is also offering a US $10,000 reward.
