Omar’s 6-Year-Old Son ‘Continues To Ask For His Daddy!’


As the search continues to find Omar Defreitas, last seen on January 6, a former colleague of the missing Body Holiday employee has related the heart-wrenching impact of the disappearance on Omar’s son.

“We have Omar’s son who continues to ask for his daddy every day and the amount of pain this brings on the family and every other family who have had a missing person, no one can imagine,” Diane Felicien stated.

She disclosed that the missing man’s son is six years old.

Felicien and others have organised another search for Thursday, January 19.

“We continue to search the northern area but out of Cap Estate. There’s the Monchy area; there’s Bois D’Orange, and there are other areas that we will continue to search,” she told St Lucia Times.

Felicien said the idea is to exhaust all areas in the north.

But she indicated that search party organisers continue to request the services of other volunteers and Disaster Committees to search their areas.

Felicien also encouraged all past and present employees of the Body Holiday and people in the neighbourhood where searches occur to come out and assist.

“The more volunteers we have, the more areas we get covered,” Felicien explained.

She revealed that Thursday’s search is open to everyone.

However, organisers have received commitments and support from individuals who participated in a previous exercise, including the Gros Islet Disaster Committee, past students of the Castries Comprehensive Secondary School, where Omar attended, and his friends and relatives.

The company which employs Omar has also conducted extensive searches to find him and his vehicle, which is missing.

“It could happen to anybody. It could knock on any of our doors,” Felicien noted.

The assembly point for Thursday’s search, which would involve drones, is the Monchy Development Centre from 8:00 am.

Felicien told St Lucia Times that searches would continue.

  1. Do the search on a weekend so that more persons are available. Also seek the help of the agencies that have alot of volunteers Red Cross, Nemo, see if the helicopter Company can make a quick run up north. Seek assistance from any and everyone.

  2. Surely there must be some cctv footage available from cap estate along the Grosislet highway of the vehicle, come on investigating officer
