Relatives of a man missing in Woodford Hill since Sunday are seeking answers as they try to make sense of the unfortunate incident that has befallen the family.
“It is very hard on us,” Shirley Luke, a sister in law of the missing man told Dominica News Online. “Everyone is taking it very hard.”
Police report that 64-year-old Augustus Luke left home on Sunday at around 10:30 am for a bath at Woodford Hill Beach and he has not been seen since.
His sister in law Shirley described him as an independent man who sometimes goes out for long periods of time. “I know he sometimes go out for a period of time but never that long,” she said. “Whenever he goes out, he always come back in time to let everyone know he is well.”
She does not want to conclude that anything has happened to him. “Up to now nothing yet, but I am just praying. I am just praying,” she whispered.
She is appealing to anyone with knowledge of her brother’s whereabouts to contact the police.
At the time of his disappearance Luke was wearing a green long-sleeve shirt, blue long pants, black short rubber boots and a red cap.
He is about 5 feet and 3 inches tall and is dark in complexion, according to the police.
Police are asking anyone with information on Luke’s whereabouts to call the police Hint Line at 1-800-HINT/1-800-4468.
