BVI –– Police said they are seeking the public’s assistance in locating another Virgin Gorda resident – Stanisha Fontaine.

The 17-year-old was reported missing by her parents after several attempts to locate her proved futile.

The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force, in a release today, did not say exactly when the report was made.

It however stated that the parents’ last contact with her was Tuesday, June 9, when she indicated that she was on Tortola, and had missed her return ferry to Virgin Gorda.
