Teacher, car missing after threats

Missing: Moses Edmund


A month after he was threatened, school teacher Moses Edmund vanished.

Edmund, 52, was last seen at the Curepe taxi stand on September 26.

Relatives said he would ply his vehicle for hire along the Curepe to San Fernando route on evenings.

And when he did not report to work at the Malick Secondary School, his colleagues contacted his relatives.

His brother, Martin Edmund, said his brother posted a comment on the family's WhatsApp group chat at around midnight on September 26.
He said Edmund lives alone in an apartment in Tunapuna.

“He is a teacher but would ply his car for hire after school. So on that evening a family friend saw him on the Curepe taxi stand. He did not report to work for three days after and then a colleague contacted the family. We went to the apartment and the landlord allowed us to go inside. He had food in the refrigerator and some dishes. Everything appeared normal and nothing seemed to be missing,” he said.

The vehicle Edmund was driving, a gold Nissan Tiida, also cannot be found.

The brother said Edmund's vehicle was in the garage and he was using a co-worker's car.

Martin Edmund said his brother was threatened by another taxi driver almost a month ago and a report was filed at the Tunapuna Police Station.

He said the family was informed that Edmund was involved in an argument with the same taxi driver on the day before he vanished.
Edmund said his brother was diabetic and was in need of medication.

A missing person report has been filed at the Tunapuna Police Station and with the Anti-Kidnapping Unit.
