    When I was a youngster, our family wasn’t into taking pictures and it looks like Yanique’s family has the same situation, because clearly the young Lady in the picture does not look like she weighs 170 lbs, nor does she appear to have her nose pierced.

    Perkaps a more recent picture would have been more helpfull!

    Obviously this is a serious issue and I hope for the girl’s safe return!

    It’d seem you hit the nail on the head:

    "We do have a worrying  number of children who cannot be controlled by parents!!"

    My guess – that is the root cause. Tv’s, Computers are not a babysitter. Kids need organized group activities with parental involvement/monitoring. As small as this island is — a parent should know at least everyone one of their child’s friends by name, if not the friends parents as well. Unless they are hiding out in a hotel – it shouldn’t be that hard to find someone.

    With summer break soon upon us — I suggest parents discuss a plan to provide constructive activities for their kids that are supervised and controlled. Provide your children with guidelines, expectations, and goals. Monitor their progress and discipline when necessary.

    Good luck, and I hope this young lady is safe!

    The Cayman Islands needs a secure faciity for these Youth at Risk.  This has been said numerous times without a commitment by the powers that be.  Sadly, this will continue to happen.  We do have a worrying  number of children who cannot be controlled by parents!!
