Where is Oscar Corea Senior? He’s Been Missing since December 28th

Oscar Corea Sr.

The Corea family from the Santiago Juan area of San Ignacio is also looking for its patriarch who has been missing since December twenty-eighth. Oscar Corea Senior left home on that day to socialize with friends and has not returned to work or home since; he didn’t carry a cell phone so there is no means to get to him.  But even so, his children and wife believe that something untoward has happened to him. While Corea Senior is known to go drinking for up to two days, he would always make contact with the family. Eight days have now passed and that still has not happened. Meily and Oscar Junior, along with friends, have been searching from San Ignacio up to the western border; a missing person’s report was even been lodged with authorities in neighbouring Guatemala, but still no sign of Corea Senior. News Five spoke with the siblings earlier today about the disappearance of their father.

“He said he was tired. He went home, he got a coke and eat; he went to my aunt’s house, he came back and then afterwards he gave some last words to my mom and from there he went and we have not seen him from there. We called his friends, went to the house he went mostly and nothing.  I contact my friend and asked her to contact the hospital and the station just in case, you know you never know. And shes like nothing. They say they don’t know anything about him. We put it on the news over there and no one tells us I saw him nothing.”

“I understand that he was last seen in Benque.”

“He was last seen reportedly in Benque with a friend. From that we haven’t heard anyone saying that they have seen him in town or in Benque side or anywhere else in the country.  We have gathered my group of cousins and in a search, we have done Benque, all of Succotz even the back areas; in Benque the same thing. We have been asking house to house. We did San Ignacio. We have done canoe search from Macal all the way down to Branch Mouth and shortly we are heading up to Benque doing a canoe search up to Santa Familia road; the Belize River.  Definitely something would be wrong because any regular day we would know that he is out there drinking, he would come home and say I am home, I will take a shower and take a rest. We would always meet his friends and they would tell us that he is okay and come home and some stuff. But from the past two three days we notice that nothing and definitely something is wrong because he would never go away for three four days and leave no trace of him. Or he would always borrow a friend’s phone or someone that he finds and contact my sister, myself or my mother and says I am okay.”

 

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Oscar Corea Senior is asked to contact the nearest police station or Crime Stoppers Belize at 922-TIPS.
