The family says Garrido was last seen on the February three, and they have now grown concerned fearing the worst has happened. During today’s Police Brief with the media, Senior Superintendent Hilberto Romero gave an update on some of the Police’s findings so far.

The information we have so far gathered is that he was dropped off at Mile 31 on the Philip Goldson Highway on Wednesday last and he has not been seen since. At this time we are conducting an investigation as several searches are being made to try and locate him. He was dropped off there by another person after they came from Orange Walk that day.
