Name: W.

Comments: Out of hearsay evidence, the victim may not be in Trinidad if this is a lead then the relevant parties should literally take the chance/initiative and go to Venezuela with someone who is familiar with the geography of the region and who is also fluent in Spanish. The word Tucupita was mentioned this is a rural rustic community that is inhabited by Waraos who may or may not speak a lot of Spanish. It is quite likely that someone may have either seen her and/or heard something about this case. Continue praying and hoping that she will be found Tucupita is not far from Brazil, Guyana or Suriname.Go for it. Trust in God and go diligently leaving no stone upturned. Never give up hope because God is on your side also when praying call her name out loudly anything can happen.
