Providenciales, 21 Sept 2015 – “As Deputy Premier, and Minister of Education, Youth and Sports, I extend an appeal for information on the whereabouts of Alicia Duncanson also known as Leecie.”
“Alicia Duncanson is a teen who was last seen on Wednesday 15th September by her mother, and reports are she was also seen over the weekend.”
Earlier today I spoke with officials from the TCI Police force and the TCI Social Welfare Department who have setup a command post to lead efforts to assist in returning Leecie home.
“At this moment, the command post has established two arms, one being an investigative arm and the other being a support and counselling arm. Both arms will work in tandem to bring about a swift and lasting resolution to this matter.”
“Leecie, if you are hearing or seeing this please, I repeat please – contact the social welfare department on 338-2681, a team of officers has been assigned to help you and assist you if needed. If anyone is harboring this teen I would also like to invite them to contact social welfare and have her turned over in a discrete manner.”
“Alicia’s mother is assisting efforts to locate her and has been receiving counselling from our professionals as we work together to ensure the wellbeing of this young child.”
“The Turks & Caicos Islands is a community and regardless of the circumstances, whenever one of our own young children decides not to return home we must be ready to pitch in and assist.“
“In closing I repeat my call for somebody, anybody with information to come forward and help us bring Leecie home. Any person with information can contact the RTCI Police Sargent Ensa Wilson on 331-2432 or 911 or Ms. Olivia Day of the Social Welfare on 338 2681 her personal Support Officer.”
