Missing 11-year-old returned home safe

The 11-year-old who had been missing since Thursday is back home safe.

St George Secondary School student Lindy Owen London was returned home today.

When a Barbados TODAY team visited his Arthur’s Hill, Bridge Cot, St George residence this afternoon, shortly after police left the home, the boy disclosed that he had run away after wrongfully being accused of stealing.

He said he had been staying in an abandoned building not far from his home and had not eaten since Thursday.

Meantime, police are still looking for 85-year-old Chesterfield Hinds of Parkinson Road, Fairfield, St Michael who was last seen at home around 4 p.m. last Friday.

At the time he was wearing a green t-shirt, a khaki cargo pants, a pair of black canvas shoes and a black cap.

The elderly man is about 5’ 5” in height, of slim build and has a dark brown complexion. He has a receding hairline with black and grey hair. He has a round head and face, no teeth and his posture is slightly bent forward. Chesterfield frequents the Fairfield community.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact police emergency number 211, or the nearest police station.

    Glad to hear he is safe however an 11 year old child does not run away only because he is accused of stealing. Hopefully Family and Social Services will do an investigation to determine if there is a problem in the home so if there is this family can get some help.

    Praise the Lord Lindy have been found safe and gave an explanation why he ran away. To be accused of stealing and parent not believing he did not do so must of been very stressful for the child. Lets hope his parents bring an end to the issue and embrace their son with love.

    Imagine an eleven year old can give a reason and an older one can come and say
    … “I ain’t missing I home” as if nothing ever happened. Anyhow I’m glad he is okay.

    A lot of people have personal issues in their lives, they deal with things they own way, if running away is one well so be it. I don’t see why John public should want to be so noisy in people affairs. I think that if the persons to know are close family members and off course the police will ask questions but John public needs no explanation, just keep speculating as always. I don’t see if the public know or don’t know how does it help the situation. Anyhow glad he’s alive and well.. Thank u Jesus
