Search for missing St John man
Scores of armed police officers, their sniffer dogs and Barbados Defence Force soldiers launched a massive search early yesterday for missing man George Washington Bailey, of Sherbourne No 3, St John.
It was just after 5:30 a.m. that the search teams arrived in droves combing more than 80 acres of bushy, muddy canefields at Clifton Hall, St John, for clues they believed would lead them to Bailey.
“We are searching the area to see if we can find the missing man George Washington Bailey,” said Inspector Elliott Bovell of the Royal Barbados Police Force at the command centre, in Clifton Hall.
About five hours later, the search teams came out empty handed.
Earlier this week, Joycelyn Bailey, the missing man’s mother, told the DAILY NATION she last saw her son on October 19, just before 9 p.m., when she ran to the window after he arrived home. However, he did not visit that night for a meal as he usually did.
The 43-year-old lives next door to his mother in what used to be a shop.
Bovell said investigations are continuing. (JG)
