The father of missing British teenager Dominic Bernard yesterday issued a plea for the public to assist with information on the whereabouts of his son.
It has been over two months since the 18-year-old went missing. Bernard reportedly travelled to Guyana on October 14, 2015 to meet his Godbrother, and ever since he has not made contact with any family or friends.
The teenager was scheduled to fly back to England on November 5, last.
During a press conference held at Cara Lodge, the missing teen’s father, Andrew Bernard said that he and his wife are urging anyone who may have flown with his son or spoken to him to make contact with them.
The teary-eyed father also asked persons who may have seen his son board a taxi, or saw him anywhere in the country, to alert police.
Andrew Bernard stated that his son left London to travel to Guyana on October 14, 2015 on Caribbean Airlines Limited (CAL) flight BW 903. He said, “he (Dominic) landed at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) Timehri at 21:50hrs (9:50 pm) the said day and has not been seen or heard from since.”
He went on to say that his son is six feet tall and medium built. The older Bernard explained that his eldest child has black hair. He said that Dominic Bernard was last seen wearing a blue jeans and white sweatshirt with a black jacket that has leather in the middle and fabric on the arms.
The younger Bernard, a photographer/film maker, was wearing a pair of white Nike sneakers and was carrying a suitcase along with one piece of hand luggage.
Police in England as well as local law enforcement are investigating the young man’s disappearance. Kaieteur News was told that Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum has assigned a team to look into the matter.
Local Immigration authorities have confirmed that the British citizen landed in Guyana. CAL also verified that Dominic Bernard did not use his return ticket to England.
In a recent interview with Kaieteur News, Andrew Bernard stated that this was his son’s maiden trip to Guyana and he was supposed to be picked from the airport by his Godbrother, whom he was coming to spend time with. However, this arrangement never materialized since the Godbrother claimed that he was unaware that Bernard was travelling to Guyana.
The father stated that after his son did not return home, he contacted his Godson who told him that he did not see the teen and did not even know he had travelled to Guyana. Andrew Bernard stressed that it was unusual for his son to not make contact with his family.
He recalled that his son had travelled to Atlanta, Georgia, in the US earlier last year, and had made contact with his family as soon as he touched down there.
Dominic Bernard resides in England with his parents and according to his father, he was not encountering any problems back at home.
Prior to the teenager’s arrival in this country, he was very active on his social media profiles.
A reward is being offered to anyone with credible information that could lead to him being found.
Persons with any information are kindly being asked to can contact the teenager’s family on 592-695-9065 or via email at [email protected] or the nearest police station.
