(CMR) Many persons in the community are fearful that missing elderly George Town man Eral Keith Whitely (72) may not be found alive.
The police have now decide d to focus their search in the area of George Town known a “Swamp” based on tipsters information received about his movements.
We are informed that he frequented the area especially at night. Apparently, he customarily slept in cars in Swamp when intoxicated. One source shared:
“He would just pick a derelict vehicle that was open and slept there for the night. On one occasion DEH was picking up cars in Swamp and were advised that he often slept in the cars and when they did a check they found a pillow and blankets. I can't help but wonder if this time he was accidentally taken away to the dump. He may never be found alive if that's the case.”
Whitely has not been seen for quite some time and the police have now focused their search in that specific area of George Town. They updated their statement to say he was last seen in the vicinity of Seymour Drive about two weeks ago.
