Former Minister Concerned For Safety Of Missing Mother And Baby


Former Saint Lucia government minister Alvina Reynolds has expressed concern for the safety of a missing mother and a 20-day-old baby.

Natrani Narain, also known as Monica, was last seen with her baby on Friday, March 10, 2023.

Narain’s Stepmother told St Lucia Times that the missing woman has mental issues.

The Stepmother said it was not the first time Narain was missing, although this time she was with her newborn.

Alvina Reynolds, former Minister of Health, Human Services, Family Affairs, and Gender Relations, said it was very worrying.

Reynolds, a former MP for Babonneau, where the missing woman is from, said that Narain and her baby need much care and attention.

She hoped that Narain, 25, was safe.

“And I am appealing to anyone who may have her for whatever reason against her will, I am appealing to them to please, please, release the young lady and her baby as quickly as possible,” the former Minister told reporters.

In addition, she explained that if Narain were in an unsafe place, it would have a big psychological impact on her now and in the future.

“If somebody is holding her against her will, I am pleading with them to please bring her to the Babonneau police station. If that is a scary situation bring her to the Babonneau health centre or to the La Guerre health centre which is closest to the Plateau area,” Reynolds stated.

She also suggested that Narain, originally from Guyana, could be taken to the OKEU Hospital.

“All what we have said about women, caring for vulnerable people, unemployed women¬† – even if she is not Saint Lucian, it matters not what country she is from. She is a citizen from the CARICOM region and so we want to take care of our brothers and sisters,” the former Babonneau MP said.

“Anyone who has spotted her, please call the Babonneau police station. Call me so we can get this lady and her baby to safety as soon as possible,” Reynolds said.

A family member of the missing woman told St Lucia Times  on Tuesday of a report Narain had been spotted in Gros Islet.

As a result, a search was being organised there in the hope of locating her.
