Kerran Baker’s mother and father literally
begged on Thursday for anyone with information as to their missing daughter’s
whereabouts to come forward.
The 25-year-old nurse was last seen on
Saturday around 7pm at the Foster’s Food Fair. Her white Honda Civic was
recovered less than two days later in the Pedro St. James castle area with
doors locked and the keys tossed into a nearby bush.
Sandra Anthony said the last time she heard
from Kerran was around 5pm Saturday when her daughter phoned to tell her she
had wired some money to Jamaica.
“That’s my child, someone tell me
something, give me closure on this,” Ms Anthony said with tears in her eyes
during a press conference at Royal Cayman Islands Police headquarters Thursday.
“I need her, I need her. Please, I’m pleading I’m begging, oh God.”
Wilmot Anthony, who lived in Cayman between
1999 and last year, asked anyone with information about Kerran’s location to
call him directly if they were not willing to go to the police.
“Almost 95 per cent of the people on this
Island know me,” Mr. Anthony said. “Say something to me, make me feel good. We
cannot sleep, we cannot eat.
“I’m bracing myself for the worst.”
Royal Cayman Islands Police had little
comfort to offer Kerran’s family on Thursday. Chief Superintendent John Jones
said police were still largely at a loss to determine where she might be. He
said police officers were out along the south coast of Grand Cayman searching
the water with dive teams and patrol boats.
“Anybody that’s a parent should know what
they’re going through and I hope that, if people do have information that they
do come forward,” Mr. Jones said.
