Tip-off after police bulletin leads to safe return...

overjoyed husband: Ashook Nagessar

A police bulletin seek­ing the public’s help in finding a mis­sing 21-year-old Couva wo­man led to her safe return on Tuesday night.
Nickey Lalla was found in Caroni and returned to her family with the assistance of police officers.
Her husband, Ashook Nagessar, 43, said he was relieved she was found.
“I am overjoyed she is back home. I took up her picture and prayed on it. Within a few hours, I was able to get her back.”
Lalla left the home she shared with Nagessar at Hill­view Lane, Lower Couva Road, on December 29.
He said that evening around 7 p.m., he walked out of the house to speak to someone, and when he returned home, his wife could not be found.
Nagessar said he, Lalla’s family and friends looked “everywhere” for her.
A missing person’s report was made to the Gran Couva Police Station.
The police issued a bulletin to the media on Tuesday with her picture attached.
“We went to certain places around the area looking for her, but couldn’t find her at all. When people saw it on the news, someone called her mother and said Nickey was in Caroni. The person gave us directions to the house and the Caroni police helped to take her out of the place,” said Nagessar.
Third time missing

Nagessar said that was the third time she had gone missing in about two years.
“We were going to get married in December. We didn’t set a date as yet. And then this happened,” said Nagessar.
When the Express visited Lalla at her mother’s home in Lower Couva Road, she spoke little, but said she was doing “good”.
Her mother, Samira Lalla, said: “I am glad that she is back home. We are happy that she is okay.”
