The following is the latest update from the sister of Marissa Sewaliah:

"Good Morning Marissa Sewaliah came home this morning she's very shaken up and traumatized. As you can imagine it's a difficult time for my family and for her. We are trying to approach the situation sensitively and allow her to settle and process because she is currently in an emotional state. I would like to express my gratitude to each of you for keeping us in your prayers and supporting us. We will take the necessary measures to ensure she overcomes this difficult period. I'm certain she understands the severity of the situation and I ask that you all continue to support her and monitor those around you, sometimes the happiest of people have their own internal battles."
