Partially blind man disappears

Myra Cardinez

Seventy-three year old Myra Cardinez, a resident of Belize City, is tonight appealing to the public to assist in locating her son who has been reported missing since Thursday of last week.  Roy Cardinez, a partially blind forty-three year old, traveled to Dangriga Town to collect monies from the local Social Security Board branch.  It is a routine, his mother says, that sees him journeying south regularly in the wake of an injury he received while working in the citrus industry a while back.  Cardinez, who also has relatives in the Stann Creek District, has not been seen or heard from since he caught the bus en route to Dangriga five days ago.  His mother is making a desperate plea for assistance in finding him alive.
