Police investigate Young Boy Missing for months

Missing child, Kimba Marshall

Authorities are currently searching for Kimba Marshall, a 13-year-old boy who has been missing for over four months. 

Kimba, a student at the Five Islands Primary School, hasn’t attended classes since March. This prompted the district education officer to inquire about his whereabouts and report the situation to the Director of Education. Last month, education authorities alerted the ministry when they couldn’t get clear answers from Kimba’s mother, Natasha Nedd.

Clare Browne, the Director of Education, acknowledged the situation and contacted the Police Youth Intervention Unit and other relevant agencies about a month ago. Browne personally reached out to the police commissioner after finding the mother’s responses “confusing and contradictory.” He then handed the case over to the police.

At the time of his disappearance, Kimba was living with his father, Ashiel Marshall, in Bolans. Despite efforts by the police and the Director of Education, they say they have not been able to contact Ashiel. However, Ashiel claims he has been available and actively searching for his son, feeling that he is the only one making efforts to find Kimba.

“The last time I saw him was the first of March when I left to go to town … I left money, I left food, and they were home with family and friends,” he said in a newscast on Observer radio.

He said Kimba told his brothers that he was going to visit his mother’s house but never returned. Ashiel said he tried contacting the mother for about three weeks without success before making a report to the police.

“I called the school to find out if he’s attending school and the teacher say, no,” he said. He then made a report at the Graysfarm and Bolans Police Station about his missing son. 

Kimba’s mother also filed a report with the police, but she claims that no action was taken. 

Inspector Frankie Thomas however stated that the police have been investigating since the report was made at the Bolans Police Station and are in regular communication with the boy’s mother.

Initially, the photo provided by Kimba’s mother was of little help, as it was taken when he was about five years old. However, a more recent photo of Kimba is now circulating on social media.

Authorities are urging residents to share any information that might help locate Kimba Marshall. Inspector Thomas remains optimistic about finding the boy, and his mother holds hope that her son is still alive.

His father believes Kimba is with friends and is afraid to go to his mother or him because of the living conditions.
