[www.inewsguyana.com] – The body of the tourist, who went missing at the Kaieteur National Park (KNP) more than two weeks ago, was cremated on Thursday, September 17 at the Good Hope, East Coast Demerara (ECD) crematorium in the presence of a weeping crowd.
Gyaneshwarie ‘Laleta’ Sivanand went missing on September 01 while on a trip to the Kaieteur Falls; however her body was only found on September 12. A ranger had spotted the body in the gorge of the falls.

At the funeral, the woman’s mother stood on the cremation tarmac along with several other family members and wept bitterly. Clad in black and white, friends and former colleagues of the woman also paid their last respects to e Sivanand.
iNews had reported that Sivanand was seen crying while on the phone on the plane; however when the aircraft landed at the Falls, she appeared perky.
It was reported that the flight had a total of nine passengers and sometime during the tour, she was discovered to be missing. Contrary to what the woman had told people on the trip, she is neither a doctor nor an environmentalist.
