Journalist joyfully announces return of daughter who went missing for two weeks


After two weeks of agonising over the disappearance of his daughter, Mr Senan Murray has joyfully announced that Victoria has been found.

Murray, manager, corporate & project communication at Total Nigeria Plc and former senior journalist with Punch newspapers announced the good news through a post on Facebook in the early hours of Sunday.


“My Vicky’s home! Just a quick thank you note for all your prayers and support. Thank you for all your calls. Thank you standing with us.

“Will share more details as soon as my hands stop shaking and my heart stops racing this fast,” he said excitedly.

In a statement on Tuesday, May 14 Senan Murray had announced that: ” Victoria Murray, 17, is my daughter. I reckon she’s about 6ft tall because she’s taller than me.

“Tomorrow will make it two weeks since she disappeared, we believe, on her way to school. She is a student of Holy Child College, Ikoyi,Lagos.

“Until she went missing, Victoria lived with the rest of the family in Oniru, Victoria Island, Lagos.

“To go to school, Victoria would normally take the bus from Sand Fill bus stop along Lekki- Epe Expressway to Obalende as her school is located at the edge of Ikoyi, next door to St. Gregory’s College.

“We have since reported Victoria’s disappearance to the Police, who assure us they are doing their best to find our daughter.

“Vicky, as we call her, is rather introverted and soft spoken with a slender body type. She is quite light complexioned and wears closed-cropped hair in a fashion recommended by the school. She speaks only English and does not have any tribal marks.

“Anyone with any information about Victoria should please contact the nearest police station or me.

“Thank you.”
