The search for three-year-old Samunya Bloomfield ended its sixth day yesterday with no hint of her whereabouts.

Samunya, otherwise called 'Poochy', of Old Harbour, St Catherine, is reported to have gone missing from her Grove Farm home some time between 11 p.m. and midnight last Friday.

It was reported that the child was asleep next to her younger sister and mother, 22-year-old Yanisha Brown, who discovered the elder of the two girls was missing when she awoke to use the bathroom around midnight. Her mobile phone was also said to be missing.

Samunya's father, 28-year-old Kris-Nieve, was not at home at the time of her disappearance and called the police when he was alerted about the missing infant, who is to celebrate her fourth birthday on July 2.


"We're coping. We're trying to cope," he told The Gleaner in a phone conversation yesterday.

"We've exhausted the options for searching, now the only option is to turn to God."

Senior Superintendent Noel Christie, commanding officer for the St Catherine South Police Division, said his team was still working hard to find Samunya.

"We are looking at all the information," he told The Gleaner.

Christie confirmed there was no sign of forced entry to either the front or back doors at the house, adding that although they have received information from members of the public regarding the missing girl, the police still have no motive or suspects in the case.
