On the sands of Manzanilla Beach on Trinidad’s East Coast, Spiritual Shouter Baptist believer Tameka Harris stood in the darkness before daybreak among the worshippers who had brought her there to be cleansed of her troubles.

There was a full moon and the tide was low that early morning in March.

The Government-imposed Covid-­19 restrictions at that time said beaches and coastal waters were open to the public from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

However, at 4.16 a.m., Tameka slipped away from the others, shed her clothing and walked into the sea where she died.

THREE years after the disappearance of Zachary La Rose, his mother is still waiting to bury her son.

Nikki La Rose remembers him as a jolly and music-loving man, who at 24 years old, had a zest for life, and was determined to achieve his dreams.

That all ended abruptly on July 11, 2018, when he was snatched from La Rose and the family he treasured.

THE past 18 months have brought unique transformations to lives around the world in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

No one has escaped unscathed from the economic, social and psychological disruption of the deadly virus.

But the Bruce family found themselves in a different tailspin with the disappearance of their loved one, Chaguanas taxi-driver Clevon Bruce.

Time is critical if you are searching for a missing loved one.

Kelvin Ballantyne had been missing for about three months from his Tobago home before his family members in Trinidad were informed that he had disappeared.

FOR Deo Persad, who knew nothing but family, work, and church, life was complete.

That was evident in the trademark grin on his resting face, hence his nickname “Smiley Boboy”.

Then one day, his heart-warming and comforting smile, even when he was angry, was lost, and the man who never took a vacation day in his life walked out of his family’s home on August 6, 2020, leaving confusion, hurt and grief at their doorstep.

On Deo’s 53rd birthday on December 14 last year there was nothing but hope that he would walk back into their lives.

DURING a power outage on the night of October 16, 2019, two men abducted Cedros resident Janelle Teeluck.

Teeluck, 41, was in the gallery of the house of her neighbours—a sister and brother whose physical ailments left one barely able to see, and the other struggling to speak.

The elderly siblings were unable to identify the two men who called out to Teeluck before they dragged her down the front staircase, just as the ­power went out.

They wept as they recounted the horrific episode to her family, friends and police investigators.

“They called her by her name. They said, ‘Janelle, it is you we come for. We want to talk to you’,” Janelle’s sister, Samantha Teeluck, said, as it was told to her when she spoke with the Express this week.

MADHO Ramkissoon had the face that everyone knew but no one ­actually ever saw.

He lived at Hardbargain, Williamsville, but from Monday to Saturday he might be seen at Marabella, San Fernando, or even Princes Town in line at a Play Whe booth, checking his cash and tickets, and playing a “mark”.

Madho loved his belly too, and in between the “mark” playing at 1.30 p.m. and 6 p.m., he might be seen buying or “hust­ling” a meal, or eating.

Madho would have turned 65 years old this coming August, distinguished as a milestone birthday for anyone. But one of the defining moments of his life occurred more than 50 years ago.
