A Point Fortin man is seeking the public's assistance in finding his only child, who went missing almost a month ago.

Jomo Williams, a watchman, said his daughter Ruth Williams, walked out of the family's home on December 10.

She has been diagnosed with epilepsy and is on daily medication.

Williams, 47, said he has searched the homes of friends and relatives but cannot find her.

"People told me they are seeing her around the La Brea area, but I cannot find her.

I am appealing to anyone who sees her to contact the police. She is a child and we need to save her," he said.

Williams said his daughter lived with her grandmother at Hollywood Road, Point Fortin.

"Her grandmother asked her to go to Point Fortin and buy some groceries.

"She came in a car and handed the groceries to an aunt and then left.

"We haven't seen her since then," he said.

She was wearing jeans and a blue top.

Williams said none of his daughter's clothing was taken and she has no money.

Williams said she has not attended her food preparation classes this term.

"My Christmas and New Year's were not happy. I was searching for my daughter. I kept telling myself that she will come home on her own.

I think she was influenced by someone to leave home. I don't know if she has a boyfriend, if she has someone it is a secret," he said.

A missing person's report was filed at the Point Fortin Police Station, police said.
