Children reportedly abducted in the Toledo district

The village of San Marcus, in the Toledo District was rocked in August of 2010, when a brother and sister pair vanished while out selling fruits. Three years have passed and the Rash family is still searching for answers. But tonight, another family plans to leave no stone unturned until their daughter and son returns home. 8 year old Fanny Romero and 7 year old Jairo Romero disappeared from their neighbor’s home in Cowpen Stann Creek this past Wednesday. They were outside playing when a woman reportedly abducted them. PlusNews spoke with their older sister Carina Romero via telephone.

Her brother and sister, she says, were spotted in Silk Grass Village on Saturday, but that’s the last lead since then.

They don’t find them.  They don’t know nothing about them.

Romero asks the public to keep an eye out for Fanny and Jairo Romero and if anyone has information on their whereabouts to contact the Police or their father at 624-4051.

Carina Romero: [Paraphrased]

We just want them to come back home.  If you see them, please call us or call the police.  We’re looking for them.  We don’t know where they are. 

She says the children were staying with their mother at the time they disappeared.
