ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Police are following several lines of inquiry in locating Siriena Tyrella Wharton who was reported missing since 12 December 2013.

While investigators are not in a position to comment on the investigation, the feedback from the public has been positive and Police are actively following the lines of inquiry. However, she still has not been found.

Deputy Commissioner Alwin James shared his gratitude for the public’s support and their understanding while investigation continues into the matter.

“While we are doing everything possible for the safe return of Siriena, she is a minor and understandably neither the details of her relationships, nor the conditions that may have led to her absence can be shared by the RVIPF,” he noted.

On Monday, 13 January 2014, 12-year-old Siriena Wharton, who resides in Old Plantation, was reported missing. Police were informed then that she was last seen on Thursday, 12 December 2013. A missing person enquiry was started by the Major Crime Team who is continuing to follow lines of inquiries here in the Territory and USVI.

Siriena is a student of the Joyce Samuel Primary School and has a wide circle of friends and relatives across Tortola and St. Thomas, USVI. 

Persons who may have seen Siriena after 12 December 2013 or have information about her present whereabouts are requested to make contact with the RVIPF through its three-digit access number 311 or through the RVIPF Intelligence Unit at 468-9339.

    This story doesn't sit well with me.....but I wont make the mistake of saying anything judgemental, especially since I dont know the full story. My hope and prayer is that she's found soon, and that she's safe.

    What were the parents or guardians thinking when a 12 year old child did not come home from school, and they reported her missing a month later. This smells fishy. Lock their a$$es up until they tell authorities what happen to that little girl. Please RVPF don't let this one go
    unsolved.

    A child is missing for a month and only now a report is made? Something is not adding up. Hope in God's name that she is okay.

" we are all upset but be correct don't make the parents any worst than they are, she was reported the next day the question is really why they did not seek help from the General Public earlier.

    A failing society will produce failing citizens. Failing parents will produce failing children. It takes a village to raise a child,
