Still no word on missing bank employee

So far, there have been no updates on the whereabouts of missing woman, Shannon Banfield, since she disappeared on Monday evening.

Photos have been shared online asking citizens if anyone has seen her or has information after she left her workplace at Republic Bank Ltd in Port of Spain on Monday afternoon, but never arrived at her Santa Cruz home that night. 

Her mother, Sherryann Lopez, said to media that she received a phone call from Banfield's mobile phone on Monday night, during which she heard a Jamaican accent speaking in the background.

When Banfield failed to arrive home, the family contacted the police.

They are asking anyone with information to call 765-5166, 745-0967 or the nearest police station.

This is the latest in a series of missing persons cases, some of which were never solved: In September, Ria Sookdeo was abducted from her vehicle after dropping her children to school, and has not yet been found, while approximately one year ago, businesswoman Carolyn Katwaroo went missing and has not yet been found.

In 2015, over 700 missing persons cases were reported to the police.
