Every night before bedtime, Dhanrajie Murray looks at photographs of her daughter and reads all the old messages, and tries to remember all the good times, going back to childhood that she had with the 37-year-old woman.
When she closes her eyes, she hopes, by some miracle, to see Shawnette Savory, who went missing eight months ago after leaving her Prospect, East Bank Demerara (EBD) home to pay an electricity bill.
But that miracle never happens.
Savory disappeared on August 20, last and no one has any idea as to where she might be, though the police have the names of a couple, who might have some knowledge.
They were identified as Patrick Bannister called “Fato” and his wife, 25-year-old Ritesha Rahaman. Their last addresses were given as Herstelling, East Bank Demerara (EBD) and Belle West, West Bank Demerara (WBD).
The missing woman was dating a relative of Rahaman’s at the time of her disappearance.
“Please, I just want my daughter to come back,” the missing woman’s mother pleaded during a recent interview.
She said that the last time she spoke with her daughter, it was at a relative’s birthday and the young woman seemed happy—in fact, Murray said she asked Savory if everything was okay to which she responded in the affirmative.
“Every time I talked to her and ask if everything was okay, she would say yes,” Murray lamented while stressing that she only has two children.—Shawnette and her sister.
But then two days later, her daughter vanished.
Police had received information that Savory’s remains were buried in an empty shack on the West Bank of Demerara.
However, they found no trace of the missing woman after hours of digging in the area.
“Its eight months now and I can’t hear anything about Shawnette,” the woman said before bursting into tears.
She said that her daughters are peaceful and do not trouble anyone so she is at a loss as to why someone would want to keep Shawnette away from home—since she would not leave on her own.
“Every day I am thinking about her and where she could be,” Murray said while stating that she believes that her daughter is alive and is locked up somewhere in Guyana.
The mother, who resides in the United States said, “It is very hard. I pray every day and ask God to help my daughter.”
Meanwhile, the missing woman’s brother-in-law, Amir Hussain, lamented that police took more than four months before they issued a wanted bulletin for the suspects.
“We are hearing that this man is in Venezuela, but we are not sure. The police wait until this man get away to issue a wanted bulletin.”
Kaieteur News understands that persons have called and informed Savory’s relatives that they have spotted Ritesha Rahaman in Herstelling.
The victim’s family believes that if the cops applied pressure on Banister’s mother, they would get crucial information about her fate.
