Abaco, Bahamas - Police in Abaco are investigating the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of a 14 year old male of Pelican Shores, Abaco.

Reports are that shortly after 11:00pm on Wednesday 23rd August 2017, police received information that the young man left Marsh Harbor, Abaco in a white 15 foot Boston Whaler boat with a 60hp mercury engine heading to Pelican Shores. He has not been seen since.

A massive search effort was initiated by the Royal Bahamas Police Force, the Royal Bahamas Defense Force, the United States Coast Guard, the local community and family members in an effort to locate the missing male who was not found.

Police are actively investigating this matter.

Police are appealing to the public to share information on any illegal/suspicious activities in their communities, no matter how small or insignificant (the tip) may seem, members of the public are urged to anonymously contact the police at 919 or crime stoppers at 328-tips (8477) (New Providence) or 1-242-300-8476 (Family Islands)

WEEKLY PREVENTION CRIME TIP - If a crime occurs – report it!

Everyone should consider it his/her responsibility to report crime. Many criminals target favorite areas and have predictable methods of operation. When you report all the facts about a crime, it helps the police assign officers in the places where crimes are occurring or where they are most likely to occur. If you don’t report crime, this allows the criminal to continue to operate without interference.

In many cases, it is the information provided by victims and witnesses that leads to the arrest of a criminal. So tell the police as much as you can; no fact is too trivial. The police need the eyes and ears of all citizens.
