The Consulate General of Saint Lucia in New York says it is ‘thrilled’ to report that Saint Lucian national Samantha Denise Primus, 46, who had been missing for just over three weeks, was found safe on Saturday, January 14, 2023.
As a result, the Consulate announced the cancellation of a City-wide search planned for Sunday.
“The Consulate General wishes to extend sincere appreciation to the Saint Lucian community in New York for the unwavering support provided to the Primus family during their time of distress,” the Mission stated in a release.
Primus disappeared on Friday, December 23, 2022, from her sister’s house in Elmont, Long Island, where she was spending the Christmas holidays.
Her family found her riding the one train in Lower Manhattan.
Relatives subsequently took Primus, described as a developmentally disabled, deaf, non-verbal individual, to the New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital for a medical check-up.

There’s no way this woman was on the 1 train or even been in Manhattan from 23rd December. Humm
What is wrong with some of you who continuously use this medium to expose your ignorance and negativity. John the article does not state that she has been on the train from December 23rd. The article states that she “disappeared on December 23rd”. Stop your negativity or take it somewhere else. The article comes with such positive news so just leave it as that. Take your bad mind somewhere else and go and learn to read.
@John … if you know nothing of the story – keep your fingers off the keyboard. You should only comment if YOU KNOW about the story! She was found alive!! Bottom line!! Take your negativity and bury it somewhere else – like in your stunted brain!!
I am extremely happy to hear that Samantha was found. However as a healthcare professional it would be extremely helpful and beneficial for Samantha to wear a medic alert bracelet as she is developmentally challenged deaf and non verbal. These devices can aid in more ways than one. Thank God she was found 🙏🏾
