“Everybody loved you” – aunt to 14-year-old who vanished after leaving for Regent St store
The family of a 14-year-old boy, Simeon Selby, who went missing last Wednesday, is pleading for him to return home. His aunt, Sylvanna Selby, with whom he lives at Seventh Field, Cummings Lodge, Greater Georgetown, said that her nephew vanished on June 10 after leaving her stall at King and Regent Streets, Georgetown, to use a nearby store’s washroom facility.
She has since filed a missing person’s report with the Police.
Sylvanna explained that her nephew has been residing with her for several years after his father passed away. His mother, according to her, is mentally unstable.
When asked if this is the first time Simeon has run away, she responded “yes” adding, “I don’t know why; maybe he wants his own way, maybe he wants to follow bad company.”
The distraught woman said that one of her nephew’s friends messaged her on Thursday via WhatsApp, informing her that he saw Simeon at a football match last Saturday at National Park.
Sylvanna said that she is experiencing sleepless nights because of not knowing if her nephew is safe. She wants her nephew to know that his family loves him and wants him to come home.
“Please come home. Everybody loved you. Up to [Thursday] morning, me and your sister went to the Police and to the welfare officer,” Sylvanna said in an impassioned plea. (G1)
