Tuesday, December 2 – The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force today looked into new information provided by family and community members in Anegada into the disappearance of Mrs. Marguerita Clinton-Faulkner as it marks the second anniversary.
This morning, forensic officers and Major Crime detectives travelled from Tortola to Anegada to follow up on a new line of inquiry pertaining to Clinton-Faulkner’s case.
Following her disappearance in 2012, Police conducted several intensive searches and included private and public search parties locally and from the USVI. Police also provided support in September 2013 to a U.S. based search team, KlaasKids, who had been retained by the Clinton-Faulkner family to assist in looking for the 77-year-old Anegadian or to uncover any evidence that could help to advance the investigation into her disappearance.
In the early evening of December 2, 2012, Mrs. Clinton-Faulkner is believed to have wandered away from her home in The Settlement. She has not been seen since.
Deputy Commissioner Alwin James reiterates the position of the RVIPF to investigate all fresh information. “We will investigate and conduct further searches on any information provided. Unfortunately, today’s operation was unable to find any trace of Mrs. Clinton-Faulkner. However, the investigation remains very much open,’’ he said.
The Deputy noted that on the anniversary, officers made contact with family members and followed up on a number of lines of enquiry.
The RVIPF continues to appeal to the public for any information that could help with this investigation. Persons with information can contact detectives from the Major Crime Team directly at 468-5682 or call the RVIPF Intelligence Unit at 468-9339. Persons are also invited to give this information anonymously to the Miami-based Crimestoppers number 800-8477.
