Search for Missing Emir Cansino Jr. Underway

The family of missing twenty-year-old Belize City resident Emir Cansino Jr. is frantically searching for him. This afternoon, a search party went out along the John Smith Road, following information that his lifeless body may have been dumped in that area. There are no official reports suggesting that Emir Cansino Jr. was the victim of a murder, but after two days with no contact or trace of his whereabouts, his family fears the worst. Cansino was last seen leaving his friend’s house at four a.m. on Monday morning, following a night out at Park Fest in Digi Park and an after party nearby. News Five spoke with Cansino’s father, Emir Cansino Sr. during this afternoon’s search.
