One of the two boys who went missing on Tuesday after swimming at the Unity Beach, Mahaica is still missing.
Stabroek News had erroneously reported in yesterday’s edition that the bodies of both of the lads from Mosquito Hall, Mahaica had been found at Hope Beach and on the Kitty foreshore.
The body found at Hope Beach is that of 14-year-old Timothy Robinson. Timothy Yearwood remains missing.
Family members of 11-year-old Yearwood told Stabroek News yesterday that they have not received any information from the police as it relates to whether a search is still being conducted to find the boy. Yearwood’s aunt, Jacqueline Johnson stated that Yearwood’s mother has been hysterical since finding out that her son was missing and his cousin’s body was found by fishermen at Hope Beach.
Johnson pleaded for the help of the police and coast guard to find the boy or his body.
Relatives are still clueless as to the events which led to the boys’ demise, but they were told by two persons who reside close to the Unity Beach that the boys had been swimming at the beach.
