Missing: Gregory Sanmoogan

Missing: Gregory Sanmoogan

Three days have passed since the family of Gregory Sanmoogan, 56, a tailor has heard from him after he left home on Tuesday morning to visit a friend at the Diamond Police Station, East Bank Demerara (EBD).

Guyana Times understands that Sanmoogan had to conduct business in the city during the course of the said day.

However, according to reports, before he travelled to Georgetown Sanmoogan went to the police station where a friend/member of the Masjid he attends was detained for questioning into an on-going matter.

Another friend from the Masjidis said to have collected him from his Great Diamond, EBD, home and taken him to the Diamond Police Station to visit their “brother”.

Sometime after, the tailor’s friend is said to have taken him to the city and dropped him off so he could conduct his business. To date Sanmoogan has not made contact with his family and has not been seen by anyone who knows him.

A relative of the missing man is said to have told INews that he had to visit his lawyer in Georgetown then go to the bank to conduct business.

Following this he was supposed to pay the family’s bills and then return home.

His daughter, whose name was not given to the online publication stated that her family made contact with their masjid, notifying the Islamic ‘family’ that they could not locate her father.

“He has a phone and we called it but it kept ringing out. We haven’t heard from him and nobody has seen him and everyone is worried. We are trying to deal with this and praying and hoping that he comes back safely,” the distraught daughter said.

According to her, Sanmoogan left home clad in grey Islamic attire and had on a pair of sandals.

Anyone having any information concerning the missing man are being asked to contact his family on phone 651-9170, 216-3263, 685-8521 or the nearest police station.
