A Trinidad and Tobago national and her grandson are among those found dead in St. Maarten as a result of the passage of Hurricane Irma.

The victims have been identified as 64 year old Melan Salvary and her three year old grandson, Oliver Robert Gedio.

The woman's body was discovered last Thursday after she went missing for two days. Little Oliver’s body was found one day after. The child was a citizen of St. Maarten.

Relatives of the family confirmed the news on Tuesday afternoon.

In a phone interview with Ms. Salvary's niece Alina Pascall, C News was told that Ms. Salvary, who lived in Chaguanas, had been visiting her daughter in St. Maarten.

She said the family is still in shock over the devastating news.

Ms. Pascall said family members here in Trinidad were only recently made aware of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Notice which invited relatives to submit information on nationals abroad in countries devastated by Irma.

She added that they will be moving forward in this direction to have her aunt's body returned home.
