Family desperately searching for man missing over a month now
Forty-two-year old Answar Stoll of Kuru Kuru on the Soesdyke Linden Highway has been missing since November 15, 2020 and with the holidays approaching, his family is desperately seeking answers.
His brother, Harvey Stoll told the News Room that the house at Kuru Kuru was found ransacked with what appears to be blood stains on the floor and walls.
According to Harvey, his brother was last seen on WhatsApp on November 15 and this was also the last time he was heard from. An official missing person’s report was filed on December 16.
“His mother called me and told me she hasn’t heard from him in over three weeks and she wanted to know what was going on.
“She called my cousin, as well, and he went up there on Tuesday and the place looked as though it was locked up, but one of the windows was open and when he went in there, the whole place was ransacked. A lot of things looking like blood on the wall and the floor and all his personal belongings with the exception of his glasses were missing,” Harvey explained.
Harvey said the lights, food and solar battery are also missing from the house.
“He was nowhere to be seen or heard from and when you tried to call him, his phone going straight to voicemail,” Harvey said.
Regional Commander, Senior Superintendent, Linden Isles told the News Room that all police stations across the country are on alert and an investigation is underway.
Answar lived alone about nine miles from the highway and did not work. He has been living in the area for the past 20 years. Harvey explained that his brother was being supported by his mother and sister who both live overseas.
Meanwhile, Harvey claims that the police are refusing to take samples of what appears to be blood inside the house.
“That is what they told us, they just looked at it and did not test it and told us it looks like Chinese sauce and ketchup. The police told us that we have to stand the expense because they cannot investigate anything unless they find a body, other than that they treat it as a missing person,” Harvey said.
According to Harvey, his brother had a young man who stayed with him from time to time. When he was asked to move out, Harvey claimed the young man threatened to kill his brother.
“The police up there have numerous reports concerning the boy and now all of a sudden that boy is not there,” Harvey stated.
The family is continuing to search for Answar but inclement weather is proving challenging.
“The scent alone is blood, it smells rank but we are hoping to find him but with this weather it is not easy and there is dense forest here and swamps,” a cousin who lives in the area told the News Room.
