The chances of finding missing lecturer Glenda
Charles-Harris are growing dimmer with each
passing day, but staff and students of the College
of Science, Technology and Applied Arts of T&T
(Costaatt) are not losing hope.
In an interview yesterday, Costaatt president Dr
Gillian Paul said students and staff were continuing
to distribute over 2,000 flyers daily with the hope
of finding the 71-year-old environmental lecturer.
While officers of the Anti-Kidnapping Squad
peruse the case, sniffer dogs and police officers have
also been combing the Moruga forests with the hope
of finding Charles-Harris.
Asked whether she believed the forest searches
were being done a little too late, Paul said, "I think
the task that is before the police is extremely difficult.
There were no kinds of leads to direct them, so they
were responding to anybody who calls in. They have
to investigate and this is what they are doing."
She said all leads must be treated seriously. Asked
whether there was a possibility that Charles-Harris
went to Princes Town to do environmental research,
Paul said no.
"It is not possible that she ventured into the forests
on her own. We have no evidence to show that this
would be an area that she would frequent. Her own
concerns because of security meant that she would
not drive long distances without informing her family.
It is not possible that she would have gone there
without telling someone," Paul added.
The president said even though days had passed
with no sign of Charles-Harris, Costaatt staff and
students were not losing hope.
"Our Costaatt family will never give up. Crime
Stoppers have offered a reward and we are distributing
2,000 flyers a day at every campus site. We put ads
in the paper, we did a prayer vigil and we are doing
everything that is within our power to support the
police efforts. We will never lose hope. We are not
going to back away because we know she is going
to be brought back safely," Paul said.
Charles-Harris went missing almost two weeks
ago. She was last seen on July 27, leaving her home
at Blue Range in Diego Martin.

Police Station at 637-6002, or the 555 Hotline.

United National Congress (UNC)
candidate for Diego Martin North East,
Attorney General Garvin Nicholas, says
the murder rate has been stabilised
under the People s Partnership and he
hopes it will continue to fall.
He reiterated Prime Minister Kamla
Persad-Bissessar s comments that there
would be a zero-tolerance approach to
Nicholas was speaking to reporters,
yesterday, along Savannah Road No 1,
after holding conversations with several
Bagatelle residents about issues affecting
them. He said the Government had
attempted to bring first world technology
to crime-fighting and had done a lot to
reform the judiciary and penal system
but much remained to be done.
"Of course, we have seen that these
results have borne significant fruit
because some 50 per cent of major
crime...we have seen a major reduction.
"We have a plan; we have a vision
unlike those on the other side who have
no plan, no vision, although they ve
been promising such for the last 286
days," he said. Regarding flooding in the
Diego Martin area, he said the plan was
to focus on drainage.
He said over the last 24 years, "some-
one" represented the constituency and
for almost 15 years served as the Minister
of Works. Colm Imbert has represented
the constituency since 1991 under the
People s National Movement. He was
the Minister of Works and Transport
from 1991 to 1995 and then from 2005
"Instead of seeing this community
develop to a standard that is deserving
of the people of Diego Martin North
East, we have seen it fall and fall and
"So that at this time, people are always
fearful when a little rains falls because
they are threatened by flooding because
the infrastructure is not in place," he
Earlier, Nicholas said he planned to
undertake the regularisation of Bagatelle,
Blue Basin, River Estate, and Tomato
Trace. He said after people had obtained
their deeds, the Government would build
roads, drainage, community centres and
a recreation ground.
He said Blue Basin and Paramin would
soon become important for tourism.
