Friends and colleagues of Omar Defreitas, who was last seen on January 6, have declared that they are committed to continuing the search for him.

One of them, Diane Felicien, disclosed that the quest to find the missing Body Holiday Watersports Leader had attracted widespread support.

Felicien said support had come from members of the Gros Islet Disaster Committee, students of the Castries Comprehensive Secondary School where Defreitas attended, the police, the Saint Lucia Fire Service, civilians, and former employees of the Body Holiday.

She said a thorough search of the Cap Estate area was done, including going through bushes and climbing all the hills.

“We were looking for clues, looking for ways that we could really help in finding Omar. The search continues. We are not going to stop,” Felicien declared.

“No area can be left at this moment unnoticed. We have to look around the Island,” she stated.

And she urged people to be on the lookout for Omar and his vehicle, a grey Nissan Slyphy sedan, registration number PL2025, also missing.

“Deep down inside we still believe that Omar is alive and well. We are not assuming what has happened to Omar. What is most important for us is to find Omar and really help the family to put some closure,” she explained.

Felicien observed that Omar’s family, friends, colleagues, and everyone who knows him are in pain as the days go by, and there’s no sign of him.

“We are not going to give up. We continue to ask people to come out and support and search for Omar,” she told reporters.

Felicien revealed plans to use a drone.

In addition, she spoke of plans for a search on Thursday.

The previous search was on Sunday when volunteers combed the Cap Estate area.

But there was no sign of Omar or his vehicle.

  1. I agree. Don’t give up. If Omar has been murdered, the perpetrator or perpetrators will be very happy that his loved ones have stopped searching for him, so they can get away with it. I sincerely hope and ask the Lord that he is found alive.
