Twenty days, no sign of Samunya
Andrew Harris, Gleaner Writer
Twenty days have gone by without a clue as to the whereabouts of Samunya Bloomfield, otherwise called 'Poochy', who mysteriously disappeared from her Grove Farm home in Old Harbour, St Catherine.
"We are yet to get a lead on where she could be, and nothing has turned up so far," expressed Noel Christie, senior superintendent of South St Catherine.
"We are working with the relatives and other members in the community and we are really hoping to receive a call from someone who could give us some information," he added. "A team has been dedicated to this case, but as far as even a lead on the child, there is absolutely nothing."
Samunya, who was three years old at the time of her disappearance, vanished under mysterious circumstances just after 11 p.m. on Friday, June 20, while asleep on the same bed as her mother and one-year-old sister, Danielle.
Seven days ago was Samunya's fourth birthday, and all her parents, family members and friends wished for was a safe return home.
Yesterday, Kris-Nieve Bloomfield, Samunya's father, said the family was trying to keep things together.
"How we do it, we don't know, but it must be the spirit of God that is holding us together, because it has been tough on the family, and her mother has been down since the incident," he told The Gleaner.
Bloomfield shared that the police have been checking in on the family daily.
"They called us earlier today (yesterday) to give us some updates and check on how we are doing," added Bloomfield.
The 29-year-old father of two is willing to do anything to get back his daughter and he appeals to anyone, even her kidnappers, who can guarantee her safe return, no matter what it costs. He just needs his daughter.
"If it's a ransom you want, we are willing to give it. Just please give us back our little girl; we love and miss her so much. Anything you want just say it, but please just bring her back to us," pleaded Bloomfield.
