Please help us to find our dear Ania!

That’s the anguished cry of the family of 14-year-old Ania Sanghanoo of Laborie, who went missing close to three weeks ago.

According to her stepmother, Melania Francis, Ania left their home on January 5, 2020, to go to a prayer session at her grandmother’s home, located next door to where they live in Banse, Laborie.

“Since then we have not seen her,” Francis told Loop News in an interview.

 Francis said the situation has left the entire family worried and in pain. She said they are praying for her safe return.

“The situation is unbearable. We can’t take it,” Francis grieved.

According to her, upon checking the house, they realized that the only things left in the house which belong to her stepdaughter were her school books and uniform.

Francis said it was the third time she went missing, once while living with her mother in Vieux-Fort, and twice while living with her. According to Francis, the last time she left her home, she returned only after her father pleaded with her to do so.

She said they have received reports from persons that her stepdaughter was seen in Vieux-Fort, Babonneau and in Laborie with one of her school mates but so far, they are unable to confirm it.

Germain Hunte, a family member of the missing teen, who was part of the prayer group with Sanghanoo, said: “She left the prayer session and said she was going to her home, but never got home.”

Hunte said she was told by someone that Sanghanoo was seen leaving her home with a bag on her back and two parcels in her hand.

The family is now making a passionate plea to the public to assist them in locating Sanhganoo.

Anyone with information regarding her whereabouts, is asked to call 7162007 or 7230537, or the nearest police station.
