THE family of missing Penal teenager Nicole Jaggan is seeking the assistance of the public in finding her, after three days and no word on her whereabouts.
Jaggan's father, Prakash Jaggan, said relatives and friends have posted flyers in San Fernando and Penal and are hoping that some one contacts them with information on her.
Nicole Jaggan, a hairdressing student, of Suchit Trace, left her home on Monday morning to attend classes at a hairdressing school in San Fernando.
Her mother, Vicki Bhagwandass-Jaggan, said she dropped her off at the junction at Suchit Trace and SS Erin Road around 8 a.m.
The teenager was last seen wearing a red jacket, blue jeans and a pair of sandals. She carried a white handbag with flowers.
The teenager began travelling on her own by taxi to San Fernando only three weeks ago.
Bhagwandass-Jaggan said they contacted the school, and was told the teenager did not turn up for classes on Monday.
The family went to the Penal Police Station and reported her missing, and spent Monday night contacting her friends on Facebook and on the telephone, but no one had information on the whereabouts of the girl.
The mother said she believed her child intended to go to school because the teenager told a class-mate of hers that she was bringing a hair product for her in class.
The father said nothing appeared to be missing from the teenager's bedroom. "Everything is still there. If someone was planning to leave they will take up some of their personal belongings but nothing is missing. On Sunday we went to Maracas beach and she was normal, I doubt she was planning to leave home", said Jaggan.
He said his wife was taken to a medical doctor for treatment today.. "We have three other children and I am trying to be strong for them", the father said.
Anyone with information can contact the Penal Police Station at 647 1233, or the family at 757 3012; 473 3947; or 770 7731.
