An unknown caller who claimed to have possession of missing eight year old Roxanne McLean has demanded a whopping $10M for her return. The child’s mother Tova Patterson told this newspaper that she received the chilling telephone call around 20:45 hours yesterday.
It has been over a week since seven-year-old Roxanne was “kidnapped” from her school. Police had apprehended a suspect who is very well known to the child’s family. However, police sources claimed that not enough was found on the suspect to detain him for more than 72 hours.
As Kaieteur news kept in contact with Patterson yesterday, she informed that she was in receipt of numerous calls from an unknown number yesterday. However, nothing was said by the caller until last night when the caller demanded the large sum.
A distraught Patterson said that the person on the line did not disclose much information. However, she said that the caller indicated that Roxanne is “okay” and is being held in Nikerie Suriname.
The caller indicated to Patterson that he will call her back today to tell her where she will find her daughter, providing that she comes up with the ransom.
Crying loudly over the phone, Patterson explained to this newspaper that one of her ex spouses, who resides in Suriname had expressed concern over the child’s disappearance.
The man related to her that the suspect who was previously detained by police had contacted him via facebook. She said that the man claimed that the suspect told him “de whole story and say how I lock he up.”
Patterson noted that she had spoken to her Suriname friend minutes before the “kidnapper” called.
Earlier in the day, the mother told this newspaper that she has hopes that her daughter is alive but she is worried about the conditions she may be under.
The saddened mother said that she had “mix up” dreams about her daughter and woke up in tears. She also disclosed that her three other children are mourning the disappearance of their sister.
“Every time I go out and come back, all they keep asking is if I find Roxy yet or have a clue where she is.”
Meanwhile, the missing child’s father, Walter Mclean said that he went around to a number of places in search of his daughter, “just hoping that someone may have seen her.” The man said that he is growing more and more worried since so much time has elapsed without anyone being able to gather a simple clue as to “why all this.”
The St Agnes Primary School child went missing from her school on Monday last. A teacher noted that a man was at the school twice inquiring about the child.
A description given fitted the physical of the son of Patterson’s companion.
Patterson received several cellular phone calls on the day of the child’s disappearance from someone who informed her that her daughter was kidnapped and warned her that any police involvement may result in her death. Last evening, Patterson said that the caller who demanded the money sounded like the voice from the first day. Well placed police sources stated that “we are pulling out all the plugs on this one.”
The Officer said that a team of investigators is “working on this case as there is an innocent child involved.”
He indicated that the police have been following several leads but keep arriving at dead ends.
Further, and most interestingly, the source said that “there seems a lot more than what is being presented in this case and we have reason to believe that this child is caught up in a serious triangle that may cause her to be hurt by the ones who are supposed to protect her.”
