AKS to probe case of missing teen

...as parents make appeal to 18-year-old Nicole Jaggan to come home

COME home or call us.

This was the appeal from the family of missing Penal teenager Nicole Jaggan if she is able to contact her family and inform them that she is safe.

"Feel free to come home or give us a call anytime. We will be happy. We just want to know you are okay", said Jaggan's father, Prakash Jaggan.

Jaggan, 18, was last seen on Monday after her mother dropped her off in Penal to get a taxi to attend classes at a hairdressing school in San Fernando.

Jaggan did not turn up for classes that day.

A missing persons report was made to the Penal Police Station that day, and flyers with her picture have been posted in San Fernando and Penal, and on Facebook.

The teenager was last seen wearing a red jacket, blue jeans and a pair of sandals. She carried a white handbag with flowers.

The father said nothing appeared to be missing from the teenager's bedroom.

Prakash Jaggan, said family and friends have been desperately searching for his daughter. "My wife and I are market vendors and we have not worked for the week. Our three other children have not been to school. We are just trying to find her", he said.

The father said he received two calls from persons who believed they saw the teenager in Princes Town and South Oropouche.

The Anti-kidnapping Squad is expected to visit the family today.

Prakash Jaggan said police officers of the Penal Police Station have been in contact with him everyday.

Anyone with information can contact the Penal Police Station at 647 1233, or the family at 757 3012; 473 3947; or 770 7731.
