First Prev 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Next Last

Police carried out a search yesterday at the house a missing woman shared with a lawyer.

Officers, some wearing personal protective equipment, could be seen at the back and side of Kamal Worrell's residence in Warwick at about 1pm.

It is understood Mr Worrell, 39, a defence lawyer, lived at the home on Hillview Road with Chavelle Dillon-Burgess, 26, who has been missing for three weeks. The pair have an 18-month-old son.

A white van with a police crest was parked behind the house until about 1.45pm.

Another police vehicle was parked in a driveway next to the property until just after 3.30pm.

A Bermuda Police Service spokesman said yesterday: “Police executed a warrant as part of an ongoing investigation.”

He refused to reveal if the search was linked to the hunt for Ms Dillon-Burgess.

The spokesman added later: “The investigation into the whereabouts of missing person Chavelle Dillon-Burgess remains ongoing.”

Police asked for help to trace the young woman more than a week ago and said there was concern for her safety.

Rose Belboda, Ms Dillon-Burgess's mother, made a public appeal for information on Monday.

Members of the public joined police and the Royal Bermuda Regiment in a series of searches for the missing woman this week.

Teams carried out sweeps of parts of Devonshire and Warwick yesterday.

Lawyer Tyrone Quinn said yesterday he represented Mr Worrell, but declined to comment further.
