Police have intensified its investigation as Discovery Geophysical Services scaled back its search for Kevin ‘Ras’ Carcamo, 43, the Hattieville chairman.
Assistant Superintendent of Police Christopher Noble confirmed to The Reporter this week that “police have detained several persons and have expanded the search”.
Even with that and the input of other search efforts, police are relying on the assistance of any member of the public who may have information about Carcamo’s disappearance.
Print-outs of two aerial fly-overs conducted last week in the immediate and surrounding area where Carcamo was last seen show a strategic course that should have picked up something if he was still moving in that area.
Dives in the Sibun River have also yielded nothing so far. Carcamo was wearing his blue worksuit, yellow hard hat, boots, gloves and goggles when he went missing.
The father of four was part of a 45-man team running survey lines in the savannah south of Freetown Sibun near Hattieville when he disappeared without a trace almost two Sundays ago.
The Hattieville and surrounding communities held a candlelight vigil, attended by more than 200 persons, for him last weekend.
