Ex police officers join search for senior

Former police officers will boost efforts to find a missing senior, it was revealed today.

A police spokesman said that the work is to include house-to-house inquiries as part of the search for Robert Douglas, 72.

He explained the help came “in response to a call to assist the Bermuda Police Service” and will be on a volunteer basis.

The search will focus on areas between the Paget traffic lights and Cobb's Hill in Warwick.

Former Chief Inspector Calvin Smith, president of the Ex Police Officers Association, said: “Members of the Bermuda Police Service Ex Police Officers Association remain committed to providing support and assistance to our community, Commissioner Stephen Corbishley and our colleagues in the Bermuda Police Service.

“We stand at the ready to assist whenever the need arises and we consider it an honour and a privilege to volunteer our support to the BPS and the family of Mr Douglas.”

He added: “The BPS has briefed us and provided us with the necessary personal protective equipment and safety guidance and we are happy to volunteer our support in this initiative.”

The former police officers involved are Assistant Commissioner Carlton Adams, Inspector Beverly Pitt, Inspector Linda Perry, Sergeant Jeff Baron, Sergeant Hatten Phillips, Reserve Inspector Dexter Flood, Police Constable Rosalie Pearman, Police Constable Andrew Wright, Police Constable Cammie Simmons and Police Constable Kevin Cabral.

Mr Douglas, who has Alzheimer's disease, is between 6ft 2in and 6ft 3in tall, slim, with a dark complexion.

He was wearing a faded blue hat, a blue sweat top with a dark, long-sleeved shirt underneath, long black sweatpants, long red socks and black sneakers with white trim when last seen near his home in Hamilton Parish on March 24.

Anyone with information that could help the inquiry should contact police on 247-1624 or 911.
