Twenty-eight-year-old doctor Chanique Cousins was reported missing on Emancipation Day after she failed to turn up for work.

The Manchester Police say the Mandeville doctor and her boyfriend who were reported missing late last month have returned home.

Head of the Manchester Police Division, Superintendent Vendolyn Cameron-Powell told The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre that the police discovered that the couple had returned during a routine police check yesterday.

She says the couple did not provide a reason for their disappearance only saying they were "never missing".

The doctor, 28-year-old Chanique Cousins, is employed at the Mandeville Regional Hospital and is from Mike Town District in Manchester.

Her boyfriend, 42-year-old Winston Davidson, is said to be a teacher of a prominent high school in Kingston.

Earlier reports were that Cousins called the hospital to say she had a family emergency and could not go in to work on July 28.

It was later reported that the hospital alerted the police when Dr Cousins did not report for work on Emancipation Day.

The police had subsequently issued numerous public appeals for help in locating them.
