There is grief this morning in Coker, St Elizabeth after the body of a girl who was washed away Saturday was found.
Dead is 13-year-old Gabrielle Madden.
Her body was found about 9 o’clock this morning by a search team comprising residents of the area, near Maggotty, in north St Elizabeth and members of the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF)
The search continues for 15-year-old Sheliesha Litchmore, who was also washed away yesterday. The girls were among others at a section of the Black River where they had gone to wash clothes. One of the two fell into a deep pool and got into difficulties. The other jumped in to try to save her but also got into difficulties. Both were swept away.
A search started by residents, walking the banks and divers jumping into pools of the river, was called off about 5:30 p.m. as darkness fell
