Woodford Hill man missing

A 64-year-old man from Woodford Hill who sometimes suffers from memory loss has been reported missing for over 48 hours.

Police have identified him as Augustus Luke.

He was last seen at 10:30 am on Sunday when he left home to bathe at the Woodford Hill Beach. At that time, he 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 with a long white beard 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.

    Sorry to hear that but they family knew he had memory lost, why let him go so far alone.

    The thing is, negative comments are not needed here, the family could not get a picture at the time but a description had to be given. It could be one of your relatives,don’t joke with things like that, think of how the family feeling presently.

    This is not the first time that someone who was suffering from such an illness or similar one went either for a walk or to bathe. Due to their condition, loss of memory, they should not be allowed to go out alone. There are times they decided to go alone without the knowledge of those who are taking care of them. This happens in big countries. They could become disoriented and keep walking for miles and are later found. It is a few days. I hope and pray that he will be found. Lord, please help and keep him safe.

    So sorry to hear this about uncle Atus. I never knew he suffered from memory loss. He was always a cool guy to me it seemed. My deceased grandmother Augustina was his twin sister. I just find it strange that he went down to the beach to bathe and he was all dressed up. Anyway Uncle I wish we find you where ever you are. I always wondered why did you go right Woodfordhill to live when all your people is on the West. We’d be right there to give you the support you need.

      While reading the article and seeing the name “Luke” I knew that name did’nt derived from Woodfordhill, so by the way, where is he from? I know that the Lukes came from the Mahaut area.
      I hope that he is safe some place, my heart goes out to the families

      This is sad. I hope he will be found. Pray for his safe return.

      This little piece of info might be a piece of the puzzle. If he is suffering from memory loss it could be an indication of Alzheimer’s disease. People who suffer from Alzheimer’s loose their short term memory but keep their long-term memory. We may think he was going to the beach in Woodfordhill, but he may be heading to the beach from his childhood.

    All of all you ignorant writers what you want the police to do get a picture of him now when he cant be found don’t you believe if they had one it would be posted.Let us just pray and trust God for his safe return

    Next thing i would like to say the whole world is reading these comments so why don’t we try to be more positive with the things that we are writing if some of alyou do have nothing to do get a live not because you have a computer you feel you can write anything it digust me sometimes when i click on line to read about my country.

    OK Sister Glo, rally the community patrol troops and mount the biggest ever community search party for Mr. Luke. He cant be that far or that difficult to find if he simply walked off unless he went swiming and inevitably headed out to sea due to memory loss/ disorientation. Hopefully he is well but is disoriented and simply waiting in the area for someone to find him. God guidance be upon you sir.

    Assertive, NOT Agressive!

    Don’t blame DNO, the police should secure a picture of teh person. However it is also possible that there is no picture available. The man is 64 years old and may not be the type to be taking pictures of himself every hour like some younger people who are Facebook crazy do.

  18. August 14, 2012

    come on DNO You mean a man with no face is missing take that picture out and get a picture of the person the discription dose not help put a picture of the man then the public will know who is missing. Woodford hill people may know him but without a picture no one else will know what he looks like.

  19. August 14, 2012

    If Police wants help to find Luke why isn’t there a picture to properly have the public identify him?
