RENNIE COOLMAN, husband of kidnap victim Vindra Naipaul-Coolman, has again pleaded with his wife’s abductors to release her.

In a release issued at about 5 pm yesterday, Coolman asked members of the public to be on the lookout for his wife and call the authorities immediately should they see anything or become suspicious of any activity that can point to where she is being held and help in her recovery.

The Xtra Foods CEO was abducted from the driveway of her home at Radix Road, Lange Park, Chaguanas, a week ago.

The release states: “Vindra Coolman has been away from us for the past seven days since her kidnapping. She has still not been released and we are not sure of her health.

“By the grace of God, Vindra will be home soon. We do not know the trauma she is going through.

“However, she is a spiritually-strong person and I gain a degree of comfort from this knowledge.

“I can feel Vindra’s energy and I know that she is using her belief in God and the strength of her spirituality to help her at this time.

“My belief, like that of Vindra, is that we can all make a difference, if we as individuals bind together.

“As she often says, if every one of us can light a light, then the result will be a light as bright as the sun. This simply means that we have to play our individual part.

“Let us continue to pray for the sanctity and safety of our people and our nation. We cannot let the few discourage us, the many.

“We may be in a tunnel, but the light at the end of it, is within our reach.

“The authorities are actively pursuing the investigation. There are committed people working along with us in the quest to bring Vindra home soon.

“We are encouraged by this, and let us also send our prayers and support to these people to enhance their strength, courage, integrity and commitment to duty and nation.”
