‘Where Is He?’ – Missing Man’s Mother


As the search continues for missing Carielle resident Omar Defreitas, his worried mother is at a loss to explain his disappearance and the fact that there’s no trace of his vehicle – a grey Nissan registration number PL2025.

Omar was last seen on January 6.

His mother Mary Defreitas, told HTS Evening news  on Monday that when Omar left the house, he told her he would not be gone long since he had to work the following day.

“He loves his work. He went (and) I closed my door, knowing there was no problem – the kind of person he is. There is nothing to keep me from sleeping,” the mother stated.

She said she fell asleep, but waking up early in the morning and realising that Omar had not come home, she became increasingly worried after several calls to Omar’s mobile telephone went unanswered.

Eventually, a missing person report was made to the police, and although concerned relatives searched, there was no sign of the missing BodyHoliday Watersports leader.

“Even if maybe we say, ‘Okay, maybe he was tired, he dozed off, and the car ran off the road, where is the car? Where is he?” The mother stated.

Relatives of the missing man are hoping for his safe return.

Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is asked to call the police at 456-3817 or 456-3870.

  1. This seems quite fishy. This man went to a staff party which several other coworkers attended and he has vanished without a trace and no one seems to know anything. Day by day this Helen of the West is getting more scary.

  2. The public needs more information in order to help search for the missing person. For example, where was he traveling from, and where was he likely headed? West coast? East coast? Up north? Down south? Is it posssible that he drove off a precipice such as on the Barre d’lisle? Can the authorities give any informatiob on the use if his cell phone? Did his phone last “ping” at any known location?

    We need to do a better job insofar as the issue of “Information Sharing” and “Investigative Inteligence” in Saint Lucia.

  3. check in Castries basin you know how many of our youths choose the lame and in-distpickle road because of no parenting and terrible community support. their demise is a valid reason. look at the facts the reality and the outcome.

  4. if public assistance is needed at least give us some basic information. like what type and model vehicle is it. there are so may different model Nissan cars.
    when he left home what location he said he was headed.
    what was he wearing.
    i mean come on now….smh
