Marist Primary Students Safe After Claims Of Alleged Kidnapping

The Deputy Divisional Police Commander South has been liaising with the Head Teacher of Marist Brothers Primary School, who as of this evening has confirmed that most of the students reported to have been missing at the beginning of school this morning have been accounted for by their parents.

Some students had not turned up for school today while some turned up late after the message was sent out on the Parents and Teachers Association messaging platform.

Police is urging parents and guardians that if their child is missing, to lodge a report at the nearest community post or station.

In a statement, Police said: “We can confirm that a team of investigators are looking into a report of an alleged kidnapping attempt lodged at the Valelevu Police Station this morning whereby the victim claims she managed to escape a group of Asian men traveling in a white van in front of her school in Valelevu.

“She claims there were two other students in the car and we have yet to receive any official reports of missing Primary School students as of this evening.

“The rumours linking any of the missing 106 students to the kidnapping report is at this point unsubstantiated and we will continue to liaise with the school heads to confirm if there are missing students,” the Police statement said.
