Abducted Bath teen found 'alive and conscious'

October 18, 2021

Winshae Barrett, the 13-year-old who was snatched from her home in Bath, St Thomas on Saturday, has been found alive.

The teen was found this morning in a wooded section of Spring Bank, a community some three miles from Bath.

Police Commissioner Major General Antony Anderson said that Barrett is “alive and conscious” and will be receiving medical attention.

Prime Minister Andrew Holness, in a social media post, said: "I am elated that Winshae has been found! When we come together we can accomplish anything."

"Parents please be vigilant in watching your children; make sure you can always account for their whereabouts. We thank the search party for their hard work and determination to bring Winshae home," Holness added.

Police believe that she was abducted by Davian Bryan, 32, the same man who is thought to be responsible for the abduction of nine-year-old Phylisa Prussia, also of Bath.

Barrett was abducted shortly after Prussia was found.

Soldiers and police are currently on the hunt for Bryan.
