Search for elderly Clarendon man ends in tragedy

Posted  19 Views updated 11 days ago

The search for an elderly man who went missing from his Glenmuir Housing Scheme home in Clarendon ended tragically on Monday after his remains were found in bushes near his house, the family said.

Eighty-two-year-old James Carter, also known as ‘Jim’, reportedly vanished on Monday, May 30.

Carter, who suffered from dementia, was reportedly last seen in the parish capital, May Pen, wearing a blue shirt and a pair of grey shorts.

“Our search ended ... exactly three weeks after he went missing, when his remains were found in bushes adjacent to the Glenmuir Housing Scheme and behind the Denbigh High School,” Carter’s stepson, Michael Gottshalk, told The Gleaner.

According to Gottshalk, DNA testing will be done to confirm identity, but the family has said that clothing found at the site are Carter’s.

“We also do not know the cause of death as yet. The body was badly decomposed and was possibly being eaten by animals,” he said.
