“Why she is not calling to set our hearts at ease”

-Shonnette Dover’s grandmother says all leads coming up empty handed

Missing- Shonnette Dover

It has been 10 days since 21-year-old Shonnette Dover of Wismar Linden, has been missing and despite numerous published news stories and attempts to contact her, she has not made contact with her family members. Her grandmother, Constance Dover, said that everyday she gets less hopeful, but is still praying she is found alive. She too reasoned that it is strange that there has been no contact with family members, even though her face has been featured all over the news. Constance said that all they have been receiving is fake news and several empty leads. “Up to today, her brother and father went to Mabura because we hear she is up there and when they went, is another girl, they are on their way back empty handed,” the worried Grandmother said.

Commander of Region 10 Hugh Winter also said that the police are following leads, but none has been met with success. “We heard she was in Berbice, when they turn up at the house, is a different girl,” he said. Winter said that further questioning was done on Shonnette’s boyfriend whom she lived with, Shaquan Allen and he is required to report to the police station every morning. The family and friends have also started a search party in Linden, in hopes of finding her. Last weekend, a fake photo was circulated on social media, showing the lifeless body of a girl, with similar features to Shonnette lying in a drain.

Shonnette was last Saturday, April 3rd, by her brother, who gave her $2000.00. Her little sister said she left for work, but she never turned up. He cousin, Esther Dover, said days before she went missing, she confided in her that she wanted to move out of her boyfriend’s home and move back into her grandmother’s home, because of the issues she was experiencing with him.

Her boyfriend Shaquan Allen, told INFO 10 that he last saw his girlfriend on Saturday morning at home and they had no problem. “Me, she and her sister was at home, we did’nt had any issue, I woke up, she made breakfast and I ate,” he said. He then left to drop some clutches for someone who was involved in an accident. From there, he said he went to his aunt’s house where he spent time with his family. He then went home where his girlfriend’s little sister relayed to him that Shonnette left for work. He then dropped her little sister to another sister’s residence before going to a party in Blue Berry Hill with his friends, after which he said he returned home and he realised Shonnette was not home. “When I go and look and see I left the key right where I left the key and I said this girl ain’t come home but I know the first time she did something like that and when I was looking for her, she was at her mother’s residence so I didn’t dig nothing, so I sleep,” he related. After calling her phone the next day and it was going to voicemail, he went over to the mother’s residence who told him Shonnette is not there and she did not sleep there. “Right away I start getting suspicious and I start calling all she friends to find out if they see this girl then I got to understand that the brother saw her over the river (Mackenzie) with a girl. He decided to make a report at the police station on Monday and it was there her sister related that Shonnette was allegedly seeing someone else. “The sister start saying about this (name given) that she use to meet up at she place and is now I gon get to learn about this (name given). She said he use to come and meet Shonnette by she house and Shonnette go out and go in the car and they use to meet up steady by the sister house.” The boyfriend then related that some weeks ago he saw the same person’s name in her phone and he asked her who is the (name given) and she said she shouldn’t question her about her contact information. He also said he saw the person’s car drop her home a few nights ago.

This media house was reliably informed that the other guy works at an expatriate company, which is located in the interior. During the time she went missing, he was at work.
