Deputy postal security chief still missing
But relatives still hoping he will return home
FAMILY members of Barrington Davis, the missing deputy chief of security at the Postal Department, have refused to abandon hope of finding their relative alive .
"Today [Wednesday] makes it two weeks since he (Davis) and his 53-year-old female friend Patricia Larmot-Barnswell went missing and we continue to pray and hope that they will return home safely," a female relative of Davis told the Jamaica Observer on Wednesday.
The woman was among a group of close relatives who made a desperate appeal for persons with information to assist the police in locating their loved one.
The relatives have, however, asked not to be named because of what they described as the "security issues" concerning the case.
"We are holding on to our faith and we believe with all our hearts that God is going to deliver them [Davis and Larmot Barnswell] to us safely," said another relative
The Constabulary Communication Network — the police's information arm — reported that Davis and his female companion went missing from his St John's Heights home in Spanish Town, St Catherine about 11:00 pm on August 29.
Family members said a security company monitoring the house made an alarm that he was missing after they received a distress signal from a panic button at the house.
Police said they found Davis' house was ransacked and there were signs of forced entry. His car was missing.
The police carrying out investigations in the case have remained tightlipped about possible development in the case but distraught family members said they were frustrated over what they said was the "lack of communication" from the police.
"We are yet to hear from the police and we are concerned but will continue to pray and keep faith," said one relative.
