Mother desperate to find son missing five days now
Anita Gomes is desperate to find her 10-year-old son who has been missing for five days now.
Andrew Gomes left his Port Mourant, Corentyne, Berbice home on Sunday last and has not been seen or heard from since.
“This is the second time he is doing this to me, but this time he left (and) he never return,” she told the News Room on Thursday.
The mother said she has searched all over the community and is being assisted by her husband.
She explained that her husband would search for the boy before he leaves for work and when he returns home, but so far, the searches have come up empty-handed.
According to Mrs Gomes, the day her son disappeared, he told her he was going to a nearby shop to return some bottles for his uncle. She said she told him not to leave since it was raining. She said she went to the washroom and when she came out, she realised her son was gone. She further said that her son reportedly took $1000 from her purse.
She added that after several hours had passed and there was no sign of her son, she began to inquire from her brother if he had seen him. However, her brother indicated that at no point did he tell the boy to take the bottles to shop and that he hadn’t seen him.
Gomes said she ventured to the shop where her son said he was going but the proprietors said they had not seen the boy and no bottles were dropped off.
The next day she filed a missing person report at the Whim Police Station. The woman said they searched and inquired around the village and in Skeldon as well but little Gomes has not been seen anywhere.
The News Room understands that Andrew lived with his great-grandparents at Skeldon but when they died a year ago he moved in with her.
He was last seen wearing a brown three-quarter pants, a grey t-shirt and slippers.
The News Room was also told by the woman that the boy had left home a week ago and was found at his great-grandparents house in Skeldon with other relatives.
Anyone who may have information about his whereabouts is asked to kindly contact his mother on 668-5505.
