THE OVERALL response to yesterday’s search for Sidneato Holford was criticised by the Member of Parliament for St Michael East, Trevor Prescod.

While thanking all those who came out to search the Belle Gully area where Holford was last spotted before he vanished on January 14, Prescod told reporters there was a lack of community support as well as a glaring absence of the kind of resources mobilised in the search for Karen Harris two weekends ago.

“I think we were able to get a good collective due to what happened recently and the call where black people were said not to look out for their own interests, like those people did. It was a very positive response on one hand but in speaking to the community, some people were indifferent to the cause,” he said.

Around 75 civilians took part in the search of the bushy and rough gully terrain alongside 25 police officers and 20 soldiers. (CA)
