Saint Lucia police who launched an investigation into a report of a kidnapping in the City, have disclosed that based on information obtained, the incident involved a domestic dispute.
Earlier this week, a WhatsApp message warned people to be on the lookout for a white Daihatsu Terios vehicle.
The message, which was widely circulated, suggested that someone in the vehicle may have kidnapped a young woman near the offices of the Water and Sewerage Company Inc. (WASCO).
It was reported that screams were heard coming from the vehicle.
However, law enforcement officials have said that based on their investigation, a couple had rented the vehicle.
The officials said they learned that the man and the woman were going through some ‘domestic issues.’
As a result, the woman is said to have attempted to get out of the moving vehicle, but her partner held on to her to prevent her from doing so.
Law enforcement officials who provided St Lucia Times with information on condition of anonymity, disclosed that the couple have since returned the rented vehicle.
Both are believed to have left Saint Lucia, it was reported.
