Man still missing one week after leaving employer’s home; family pleads for help


A family from Suddie on the Essequibo Coast, Region Two is growing increasingly worried about the whereabouts of Daniel Roopchand, who left his employer’s home on Sunday, September 10 but hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

According to the young man’s mother, Stacy Fiedtkou, she received information last week that her son who relocated to work at Mocha, East Bank Demerara is missing.

The 21-year-old stayed with his employer since arriving in Region Four about three weeks ago to work as a labourer.

After the first week of work, he got paid and according to the employer, Roopchand left while he was at the market.

Fiedtkou told the News Room during a telephone call on Monday that she is worried about her son’s safety.

“I’m not hearing from this child so I spoke to the boss and he related to me what happened. That he went to buy ration, left him with his son and when he came back he didn’t see Daniel.

“He asked his son and he said he saw Daniel go through the back door and from then then they didn’t see or hear back from him. I got worried because I don’t think that Daniel knows much in Mocha or anywhere as such,” Fiedtkou said.

The woman tried to make a missing person report at the Suddie Police Station but she was told she had to go to a station closest to where her son was. She added that the young man is unfamiliar with the area and he can become emotionally unstable very quickly.

“We still don’t know where he is or how is he or whatever is happening and then he is not too emotionally stable so that is my biggest worries.

“Anybody can take advantage of him when he is in this state where he is not emotionally stable and he gets carried away very,” she said.

According to Fiedtkou, the employer has been assisting her with updates relating to whether anyone has seen him but they have yet to receive comforting news.
