A retired High Court judge is home with his family after he went missing from his Fitches Creek home in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The 87-year-old former Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court justice was reported missing after his daughter, an attorney, discovered he was not in the house when she woke up.

In the report made to the Parham Police Station, his daughter related that she had offered him dinner at approximately 6pm on 26th November while he watched television.

She went to bed at 10pm and awoke sometime after 1am on Sunday to find that her father was missing from their home.

The search for the octogenarian, who suffers from dementia, began.

Enquiries were even made at the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre to determine if he was there, but efforts to locate him proved futile.

The searchers then determined to return to Fitches Creek and concentrate their efforts in that area on Sunday morning.

The decision proved to be a correct one as the former judge was discovered lying on his back in the bushes several yards from his home.

He was dressed in pyjamas and a pair of socks.

The Antigua and Barbuda Emergency Medical Services (EMS) was summoned and conducted an examination of the elderly man who was deemed to be in “good physical condition”.

  1. While I’m happy this ended in success, I’m perturbed at the reason for withholding the name? I would want the community to know, especially if this were to happen again in the near future. My mom suffers with alzheimer’s and would dread her becoming displaced.

  2. I’m glad to hear they found him.. taught me many years ago… but why the article refused to mention his name? If he missing he missing and the idea is to find him or its just gossip? Smh… had it been a regular Joe blow from All Saints the name would be in the article fu say he missing…sheeesh. I thought is sexual crimes alone names are withheld. Any I am glad to hear he has been located..

  3. Whatever the family’s reason for wanting his name witheld we all need to respect that.
    Whilst I agree that it would be beneficial to knowing who he is, in the event this should occur again, if someone sees him an early intervention could be made.
    I am very happy that this ended positively, that he is in good health and back home safe.
    I would advise his daughter to keep all doors locked and keys removed from his keeping/reach at night to prevent a re-occurence.
    Let us thank God for this time.
