[] – Colleagues of missing 34 – year – old St. Stanislaus school teacher, Nyozi Goodman have broken their silence during a search for the teacher that found two items in the Botanical gardens which is believed to be her belongings. ‎

Najuma Greenidge, a close friend and colleague of the missing teacher joined a search team which was launched by activist Mark Benchschop, said the teacher was a very jovial, hardworking fun and frank person.

“So somebody just picking up them self and just disappearing, that’s just not her at all,” Greenidge said.

Her colleague added that she is “always on time for work and very responsible” and believes she was kidnapped or forced against her will since she would never ‎just disappear.

Her colleagues believe she is alive. ‎Another teacher said all information that may lead to her rescue, lies in Goodman’s phone.

Concerns have been raised about the Ministry of Education and the Guyana Teacher’s Union’s (GTU) disinterest in the teacher’s disappearance. The woman’s family also questioned why her phone records were not checked and believes that may help to find her.

The woman’s relatives remain puzzled over her disappearance without a trace following a basketball game at the National Gymnasium on Sunday (July 6).

The woman who has been a teacher for almost a decade and teaches Geography and Social Studies at the Saint Stanislaus College had reportedly gone to accompany another teacher and students from her school.

According to her brother, Nestor Thompson following the game, she told the students to go ahead since someone will pick her up to drop her home, but that was the last anyone would see of the woman.

No one saw who picked her up or where she went and calls to her phone have all gone unanswered. Checks at her William Street Kitty residents also came up empty handed.


The single woman is said to be five feet, five inches tall and dark brown in complexionGoodman 2. Anyone with information about the woman’s whereabouts could contact her brother on 6924526 or the nearest police station.
