Norwegian Belizean citizen Christoffer Jan Roggema has been found dead after being missing since Monday of this week. Roggema went missing after he was left alone in the bushes waiting for a vehicle to pick him up. According to a close friend, Jaime Perez, Roggema went along with a business partner and a land surveyor to inspect a property. He was ill and he was advised not to make that trip but he insisted on going. During the hike, he began feeling bad and was told to wait as the others went for a vehicle and promised to come back for him. When they returned however, he was gone. A search team was assembled immediately and the search for Roggema began since Monday. It wasn’t until sometime this morning that his body was found by a search party. We spoke with Perez earlier today moments after he received the call informing him that Roggema’s body had been found.
