UPDATE: Missing man from Cochrane is alive and well

Randy Piper of Cochrane who was reported missing by the police on Thursday is alive and well.

Police issued a release on Thursday seeking information on the whereabouts of the 31 year old Piper who was reported missing on the 13th of October.

The police described Piper as being six feet tall with a dark complexion and said he had left home  on September 29 and was last seen by his girlfriend in Yampiece the following day.

However an update from the police on Friday revealed that Piper was somewhere in Dominica “working on the farm of a public servant”.

According Police PRO John Carbon “having spoken to him by telephone, he said he is ok and just needed sometime away from his family.”

    They SPOKE to him via telephone? Was that really Randy you spoke to? Are you sure? I would like to think that you all got a family member and went to verify the man is actually the person they claim they are. Just saying…….

    He is alive and well. He wanted to be away for sometime from family for a while. This indicates that he has family problems. There is a reason why he left. There is a reason why his supposedly disappearance was not reported. I hope he will be able to sort matters out and return to his family.

    Happy he is ok however, he could at least let his girlfriend and family know where he is.. But if he wants so much space I would tell him stay away, cuz apparently he was being selfish not thinking how that would affect his girlfriend and family

    How can the police confirm he is alive through a telephone conversation? They could have spoken to anybody claiming to be Randy Piper. This is not good. Or is it the release that made an error and suggested confirmation by telephone? Hmm.

    Was he wearing clothing, shoes, a hat, distinguished marks? is he bald, low cut, dreadlocks,…? Most men in D/A a dark skin and 6ft tall…You think we could find him without proper description?

    I can`t understand, since sept.29th he left home and only now she is filing a complain. What kind of girlfriend is that.

  17. October 25, 2012

    Why would a man leaving his home on September 29, last seen on September 30, reported missing on October 13, and is only becoming PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE on October 25. DNO, do you realize that so much time have passed if anything illegal is involved that man could very well be in serious danger, or otherwise none-existant. Why did you all wait so long to report? I thought a person should be reported missing within 24 hours.

    • October 26, 2012

      Typo – Correction (none-existant) NON-EXISTANT or rather no longer exists.

      • Justice and Truth

        Correction again, ‘existant’ is wrong. It does not exist in the vocabulary. The correct spelling is ‘existent’. Check it out especially in the computer Spelling Grammar and Research section.

        The missing man must have a picture somewhere. It’s a simple, just ceck the girlfriend or another family member for a pic.

      October 25, 2012

      i was wondering the same thing and beside that you mean he never remove any photo having some one sketch a face might not help. the girlfriend should have a phone at least on her blackberry

    • October 25, 2012

      Tazanne, the missing person’s name is RANDY PIPER, he’s not John Doe.

      A photo would be very helpful. The residents of Cochrane do not necessarily need a photo; however, for a nationwide search a photo is definitely helpful if seen he’d be recognized. Let’s all pray that nothing illegal is involved and that he get back to his loved ones safely.
