Search for missing Kerran

Detectives searching for missing Kerran Natalee Baker were carrying out a detailed search of the area near where her car was found.

Her white Honda Civic was discovered abandoned on waste ground near to Pedro’s Castle yesterday afternoon.

Scenes of crimes officers were analysing the vehicle in the hope of finding clues as to where the missing 25 year old may be.

Police were also carrying out door-to-door inquiries close to where she lived in Arrow Drive near to Countryside Shopping Village.

She was last seen on Saturday evening around 5pm when she was spotted driving her car in the Red Bay area.

One of her friend’s tried to call her on Saturday evening, then again on Sunday evening but got no answer.

So concerned the friend went to her house and with the help of her landlord they entered the property and found Kerran’s handbag and some groceries she had bought on Saturday.

The friend then raised the alarm and contacted the police.

Last night Detective Superintendent Marlon Bodden said: “The fact that Kerran left the house without her handbag is very unusual.

“She also uses her phone a lot – but none of her friends or family have received any calls or messages from her since Saturday evening.

“Door to door enquiries have been conducted in the area of Arrow Drive and contact is currently being made with Kerran’s family and friends in an attempt to trace her.

“Road patrols and the RCIPS Air Operation Unit have been searching for her car.

“I can confirm officers found the car parked in the Pedro Castle area. A search of that area is currently ongoing. The search teams include the K-9 and Air Operations Units.

“As yet no trace of Kerran has been found. I would ask anyone who saw Kerran after 5pm on Saturday evening to contact us immediately.

“We need to make sure that she is alive and well.”

The landlord of the property Kerran was renting, last night said she has been a very clean and tidy tenant since moving in a month ago.

The woman, who asked not to be named, said: “When she rented the place she said she wanted it for herself. I asked her if there was anyone else living in the place and she said no. And she said she had no children.

“I don’t know much about her really. She only rented the place around a month ago and I have been away myself so I have not seen her for about a week.

“She is very neat and tidy and the place is always kept immaculate. She dresses very smartly. I don’t think she really has the time to socialise with the other tenants. I have not really noticed anything unusual.”

A close friend of Kerran, who also asked not to be named, added: “I believe she is still alive.

“I am very worried indeed because we have no idea where she is. She is very friendly and she likes to meet new people.

“Kerran is very cool and extremely down to earth. I know she has a boyfriend and he’s not taking it very well.

“She is a dental assistant at a place in George Town.”

Kerran is described as being around five foot five in height and weighs approximately 135 lbs. She has brown eyes and dark shoulder length hair.

Last night on the social networking site Facebook, friends of Kerran were leaving messages urging for her safe return.

One said: “I hope she is alright and gets home soon. She is a cool person.”

Another added: “I really hope she will be found.”
