According to police sources, the god brother of missing British teenager was arrested at a city hotel on Friday evening, not long after reports began to make rounds that a decomposed body was found in a shallow grave, a village away from where the teen was scheduled to stay in Berbice.
Sources say that after investigators got information that the god brother Aaron Hing had checked into a city hotel, they acted swiftly by arresting and taking him to CID where he is currently being questioned in connection with the disappearance of British citizen Dominic Bernard.
Hing’s arrest came mere hours after police issued wanted bulletins for him and another suspect, Staymon George, believed to be involved in the teen’s disappearance.
Staymon George is still on the run. The Police Force is urging anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of George to make contact on telephone numbers 225-6411, 333-2191, 333-2151, 226-1326, 225-7625, 911, or the nearest police station.
Staymon George is of African ethnic origin. His date of birth is given as 1992/04/19 while his last known address is listed as 19 Charles Street, Charlestown/Kildonan Village, Corentyne, Berbice.
While the Police are yet to confirm whether the decomposed body found aback Alness Village in Corentyne, Berbice on Friday afternoon is that of the British teenager, it is highly likely that this could be so.
Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum confirmed that a badly decomposed body was found a few villages away from where the teen was expected to stay during his visit in Guyana.
INews understands that several pieces of clothing and other items were found in close proximity to the body. The police are continuing their investigations.
The father of the missing British teen Andrew Bernard met with reporters in Georgetown a few days ago during which he made an emotional appeal to anyone who might have any information about his missing son to come forward and report to him or the nearest police station.
Giving details about Dominic’s flight from London to Guyana on October 14, 2015, Andrew said his son arrived at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, Timehri at 21:50 hrs (9:50 pm) and has not been heard from since.
“My son flew on BW 903, leaving London Gatwick on 10/14 at 12:50 pm, arriving POS at 5:30 pm on the same day. He then boarded BW 483 from POS to GT at 8:40 pm arriving at Timehri at 9:50 pm,” he told reporters.
Andrew said he is aware his son cleared customs, but there has been a lack of information after that.
