Update: Tessa's Facebook status says 'I'm safe', but is it her?
Updated Friday, September 21, 2018:
27-year-old Tessa Thomas, who was last seen on September 16, allegedly updated her Facebook page around 1:33 pm on Thursday to say 'Sorry for the consern guys, I am safe'.
However, friend and relatives are concerned as to whether it was, in fact, Thomas who posted the update to her Facebook profile.
According to a source, Thomas indicated that she had been trying to leave an abusive relationship a few months ago.
A friend commented under her post that Thomas, a media professional who graduated from the University of the West Indies (UWI), St Augustine, would not make such a spelling error.
"Thank God but how do we know it's really u hun,' said one woman.
"Tessa, please post a video. I know that you know how to spell concern and use commas correctly. Eight words on Facebook do not allay my fears. If anyone has spoken with her, please let us know. We just want more solid proof," said another woman.
After the comments, the post was mysteriously amended around 5:00 pm Thursday, however, there were no other updates and no responses to private messages or calls.
