Dominica: An update was shared by several police sources about the 12-year-old Kernisha Etienne, who was abducted from her home on the night of June 7, 2022. Police have confirmed reports of the sighting of her abductor Keyan Alexander.

According to information received from several police sources, on the afternoon of June 16, Alexander was spotted by four civilians in the bushes somewhere on the west coast of the island.

The men attempted to apprehend Alexander, but he managed to escape during a scuffle. They chased, but the abductor evaded their pursuit and had not been seen since. Police sources disclosed that 12-year-old Etienne was not spotted with Alexander during yesterday’s brief sighting.

Further information revealed that Alexander appeared to have been camping for some time in the area where he was last seen.

However, despite an extensive search carried out by the police at the location and surrounding areas, Alexander and Etienne’s whereabouts are unknown as of today.

Over a week ago, Etienne was abducted from her home by Alexander, who the police labelled as a “lunatic.”

During the offence, Alexander, who’s from Belles, went to the home of his uncle, Laurent Joseph Bruno, and attacked him with a cutlass inflicting serious wounds to his head and face.

Thereafter, he abducted Etienne, Bruno’s adopted daughter, and disappeared with her into the bushes of Warner.

Scores of citizens have joined the police in their search for the minor and the assailant.
