By BBN Staff: The Special Envoy for Women and Children, Kim Simplis Barrow issued a press release a short while ago on the disappearance of seventeen year old Kelvin Usher.
The release says that Barrow joins the nation in calling for the safe return of Usher and a “transparent investigation into his disappearance.”
It also says that Barrow’s thoughts and prayers are with the family as they search to locate their loved one.
“ The Special envoy is however encouraged by Police CEO, Col. George Lovell’s assurances that the police officers involved in the raid on Sunday have been removed from the search and are being interviewed by the Professional Standard Branch of the Police Department. Hopefully, this will lead to a full and thorough investigation and bring clarity and accountability to Sunday’s events,” the release further states.
The release also stresses that is the state’s responsibility to protect its children including those youths who come in conflict with the law.
It ends by saying that Barrow applauds the community for their unity in support of Kelvin’s family in their search and encourage anyone with information about his whereabouts or of the events leading to his disappearance to come forward.
