Almost 10 days after she was last seen alive, the body of 19-year-old Anisa Miguel was discovered this morning in the Mazaruni River in Region 7.
Miguel was reported missing last week. She was last seen alive near Martin’s Landing in the same area.
A Police statement on this morning’s discovery said Police ranks were summoned to the Baboon Island area in the middle of the Mazaruni River after the body was seen floating in the river.
The Police said the body was in an advanced state of decomposition, but was identified to be Anisa Miguel.
The Police also indicated that the body was found clad in a pair of blue jeans and a pink blouse with no footwear.
A red mark was also discovered around the woman’s neck.
The body will be transported to Georgetown for a post-mortem examination. Investigations are ongoing.
