Carcamo Family Pleads for Safe Return

Kevin Carcamo

As days go by, the disappearance of Hattieville chairman Kevin Carcamo, remains a puzzle for his family. Carcamo, who is employed as a linesman with Discoverseis, did not return home two weeks ago after he set out to work. Numerous search parties have come up empty-handed but there is a glimmer of hope that a bloodied stick found last Friday may have some bearing on his whereabouts. Carcamo’s family members have arrived from the United States and they have more questions than answers. News Five’s Isani Cayetano has an update on this story.

The unexplained departure of forty-three-year-old Kevin Carcamo over two weeks ago continues to take a devastating toll on his loved ones who, since July twentieth, have been searching for him tirelessly.  While the company he was working with has subsequently withdrawn from the rescue party, following a ten thousand dollar bounty for information on his whereabouts, his siblings continue their quest to find him.

“We wanna know the why, the who and the how.  To anyone that has anything, any knowledge please contact my brothers Ian and Victor.  They are not here today because they are out searching in the bush directly.  The only thing we want is justice and justification for this untimely event.  Please, we beg of you to have compassion and godly understanding that we need closure.  Please give us back Kevin Carcamo.”

 

On Friday, there was a small leap forward when volunteers in the area behind Freetown Sibun happened upon a branch speckled with what has since been confirmed as human blood.  In the absence of a DNA testing facility in country, News Five understands that samples have been sent abroad for analysis.

“They’re sending out the DNA.  Belize doesn’t have DNA here so they have to send it to Jamaica.  That’s all I know about that.”

“One of the requests was for either blood samples that match that of his kids and a strand of hair that would compare with the one that was found during the search as well.  I spoke with a police officer, an investigating officer, on Tuesday and he was saying well, they’re still awaiting the family to be able to provide certain specimen.”

“Well, we did our part.  Our part is done.  It’s up to Belize police to do their part now.”

 

Understandably, there are more questions than answers and the family is once again turning to Discoverseis for a reply.

“My question is how do you leave somebody in the bush when you go in as a group and you come out as a group?  Do we not do head counts?  I also asked them this morning why isn’t it they don’t do background checks.  I know America is different from Belize. [I] get it!  But how do we know there is not a serial killer out there that’s chopping people down in Belize?  How do we know that there is not some crazy psychopath that doesn’t care about human life, taking him from these innocent little babies?  How do we not know that?”

 

With rumors abound, the family says that it is not concerned with theories of what may have happened prior to the disappearance of the Hattieville chairman.  All they want is for him to return one way or another.

“I don’t care if he knew something.  I don’t care if he did something.  I don’t care.  It’s just the justification of allowing us to bury him if necessary or allow us to allow him to heal when he comes home.  That’s what we need to know. I’m begging you.  I’ll give whatever.  I’m not rich, I don’t have beaucoup of money but if I can help you in any kind of way please let us know.  Please, because it’s very hard.  It’s so hard knowing that he’s not there with his babies and my brothers are trying so hard to find him.”
