Young Briton goes missing in Guyana
It has been nearly three months since British born, Dominic Bernard landed in Guyana at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) and no member of his family has heard from him.
On October 14, 2015 Bernard departed London, England on Caribbean Airlines (CAL) Flight BW 903 for Port of Spain, Trinidad, the18-year-old then boarded CAL BW 483 which arrived in Georgetown at 21:50hrs the same day.
This was his first trip to Guyana and he was supposed to be picked from the airport by a relative. The arrangement appeared to have gone wrong since the relative was unaware that Bernard was traveling to Guyana and did not pick him up.
According to the missing teen’s father, Andrew Bernard, his son told him that he was coming to Guyana to spend some time with the relative. He said that his son was scheduled to return home on November 5, 2015, but failed to do so.
The father has traveled to Guyana in search of his son who normally would be very active on social media but has not posted anything since . The young man had traveled solo before to the United States. Then he kept in constant touch with his parents and friends.
Dominic is a budding filmmaker and both the British and Guyanese police are now engaged in investigating his case. The British High Commission in Guyana is offering assistance.
