A retired High Court justice is now back home and with his family after having been reported missing by his daughter.
Reportedly, the 87-year-old former judge – who is said to suffer from dementia – went missing from his home early Sunday morning, November 27.
According to reports, his daughter saw to his needs and served him dinner at about 6 p.m. on Saturday evening, November 26, then left him watching television in the living room when she went to bed.
However, at about 1:50 a.m. on Sunday morning she went to check on him – and discovered he was not in the house.
The Police, who were immediately notified, conducted a search of the home and the surrounding area and even inquired at the hospital, but the judge was not found.
Meanwhile, Commissioner of Police Atlee Rodney, along with several senior and junior officers, went into the community where the elderly man lives and conducted a search.
At that time, reports say, he was found several hundred yards north of his residence, lying on his back in some bushes.
He appeared to be in good health; however, the Emergency Medical Service was summoned to the scene. The man was examined by the Emergency Medical Technicians, and they found him to be in good physical condition.
Meanwhile, a pre-teen reported missing has been found, and reports say the 12-year-old was taken to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) by her father.
He reported that his daughter ran away from home on November 18, and this was reported to the Parham Police Station on the same date.
Since her return, certain information was obtained from the minor by the Police, in the presence of her father, and investigations have been launched.
The Youth Intervention Centre has also been informed of this incident.
