Where is Hubert Richards, 83?

Joseph Myvett

The search for eighty-three-year-old Hubert Richards, a retiree of Sand Hill Village, continues after five days of being lost.  Anna Richards reported to police that she hasn’t seen her father since he left her residence on Queen Helmet Avenue in Coral Grove last Thursday.  Despite surveillance footage reportedly showing the elder man in the vicinity of Ladyville the following day, he is yet to turn up.  Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett says that efforts are being coordinated with the Richards family in an attempt to find the octogenarian safe and in good health.

“I know that the investigators are out there and they are at some point coordinating with the family and following leads as well as to where this person may have been.  I believe that there was some surveillance video showing him in the Ladyville area, I believe, around Friday.”



“Okay, now we know that in the past we’ve seen a number of cases where older persons perhaps have a loss of memory and they go missing due to that.  Might that be a factor in this case?”


ACP Joseph Myvett

“I would not be able to say whether or not that was a factor, but I can say that there were several leads which the police have followed and most of them turned out to be that he wasn’t in that area.  But we are continuing and we are continuing and we continue to coordinate with the family.” 



“Are you able to say if investigators have any leads that he may have gone somewhere purposeful or if he may have been a victim of some sort of violence?”


ACP Joseph Myvett




“No leads to that effect either.”
