Family of Missing Roaring Creek Resident Fears the Worst

Emerson Daly

The family of a missing Roaring Creek resident fears the worst tonight. Twenty-four year old Emerson Daly took off on Sunday in a vehicle belonging to his uncle promising to return it soon enough but he never did. This morning, the police found the Pathfinder in an abandoned area of Belmopan with blood stains on the back seat.  Police are yet to confirm if it is a case of murder, but the Daly family believes it is. Andrea Polanco reports from Roaring Creek.

Today, the family of twenty-four year old Emerson Daly, a budding entrepreneur from Roaring Creek Village, is worried that he may have been murdered. The last time his mother saw him was on Sunday evening.

 

Desiree Matute, Mother of Emerson Daly

“The last time I saw Emerson was on Sunday evening, after six. That was the last time I saw my son.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“Did he say he was going anywhere or with friends?”

 

Desiree Matute

Desiree Matute

“No. He say he gwein home because he tired. He do decorating so he said ‘ma, I gwein home.’ So he said I gwein sleep.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“So at what point did you realize that he was missing?”

 

Desiree Matute

“When my ma come tell me that Emerson didn’t come home on Sunday night.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“So did she give you that news on Monday?”

 

Desiree Matute

“Yes, Ma’am. Like Monday after eleven. She said that Emerson didn’t come home on Sunday night.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“So did you try reaching him? Calling him?”

 

Desiree Matute

“Yes. I called but his phone went straight to voice mail but he never answered. That dah nuh he. He usually say he is here or always answer me and then I know something wrong.”

 

The last area he was seen was on this street when he took off in a borrowed Blue Pathfinder. His mother says he was in the company of another person.

 

Desiree Matute

“He was in a vehicle. He borrowed my bredda vehicle and tell my bredda he wah come back inna fifteen minutes. He said that his car mi di give trouble so he borrow the vehicle but he neva bring it back and that’s not him because my bredda use his car for work.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“So when he borrowed the vehicle, he left and never returned?”

 

Desiree Matute

“Yes, Ma’m. He never came back.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“So when you talked with people in the village, what are they saying? Maybe they saw him with a friend or somewhere socializing. What have you heard so far?”

 

Desiree Matute

“I hear that he mi deh with somebody but I cant say dah who. I never saw him. They say he was with somebody.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“So where was the last place they saw him?”

 

Desiree Matute

“Right up by Mervin Bar. Right up the street.”

 

Only the vehicle was discovered this morning in an uninhabited area on the outskirts of Belmopan. The vehicle, according to Matute, had blood inside. This has led her to fear the worst.

 

Desiree Matute

“They find the vehicle this morning when I gone in gone mek the report. They start to look and somebody called and said they find the vehicle. Police gone and they found the vehicle and found blood in the back seat but they nuh find his body.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“What does this make you believe?”

 

Desiree Matute

“That mek me believe deh kill my son. How deh wah have blood in deh. I nuh know weh do with his body. I just want my son back.”

 

As the owner of Daly Dream Creations, Daly was well known in his community. So, does his family believe that robbery was the motive for his disappearance?

 

Desiree Matute

“I think dah that because he mi gone and do three thing and I think he mi have money on him and they robbed him. Because when I gone in his house, I saw money on his bed. So I know they robbed my son but they never had to kill him. I think Emerson know the person that is why they kill him because he doesn’t go with people he doesn’t know. I think that’s why they kill him and I think it’s more than one person who killed my son because Emerson wouldn’t left himself.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“So far no body. Are you still holding on to hope that perhaps your son is alive somewhere?”

 

Desiree Matute

“To tell you the truth, I think they kill my son. If my son was alive he would find home. I know he is not alive. I know they kill my son.”

 

But while Matute believes her son is dead, Belmopan Police say they are still treating it as a Missing Person’s case. Reporting for News Five, I am Andrea Polanco.

 

News Five understands that some of Daly’s personal belongings, including his under-shirt and slippers, were found inside the vehicle. We will have more on this story in Wednesday night’s newscast.
