Family in search of mentally unstable man

A Sisters Village, East Bank Berbice man, believed to be mentally unstable, has been missing since mid-November last year, according to his brother.

Adlai Edson Reynolds, 52, had previously gone missing for four days at the start of November before he was discovered at the Sisters Village back dam by villagers, Oswald Simpson, the man’s brother, told Stabroek News.

After being found by villagers, Reynolds was taken to the New Amsterdam Hospital, where he stayed for a week before leaving the hospital. Simpson added that he subsequently went to Berbice and visited his brother, who had returned home after leaving the hospital.

He added that his brother then told him that he wished to relocate to Georgetown to live with him.

Simpson said that he told his brother that he would have him travel to Georgetown in another two days. He added that the day after he had the conversation with his brother about relocating to Georgetown, he received a phone call from a family friend who informed him that Reynolds had left the home and no one had any idea where he might be.

Approximately a week later, Simpson said another friend called him and said that Reynolds was seen on the Success Public Road on the East Coast of Demerara, bracing on a lantern post. He added that he soon after called an uncle who lives in Buxton to check the location with the hope of finding Reynolds but his searches were futile.

Reynolds stated that the family received phone calls from people living at Sisters Village, who told them that Reynolds was picked up and taken to the hospital.

He added that the family checked both the Georgetown Public Hospital and New Amsterdam Hospital and found no signs of Reynolds. He added that during December, the matter was reported to the Sisters Police Station but the family has heard nothing from the police as yet in relation to Reynolds’ whereabouts.

Simpson said he is hoping to find his brother and wonders whether he is still alive.

Anyone knowing the whereabouts of the man is urged to call telephone number 669-5522 or the nearest police station.
