Philbert said her son left Icacos on a boating expedition with friends. "I don't know who his friends were, but I was told that the friends came back. I just want to know what happened to my son," she said..

Richards, 31, was last seen alive by his relatives four Sundays ago.

Richards' children ages ten years to 18 months were staying with their two mothers.

Philbert said she calls to her son's cellphone have gone unanswered. "He usually answer my calls. I would call him everyday and wish him well. I am worried that something has happened to my child and no one is telling me anything," she said.

Richards lived in San Fernando. Reports were filed at the Point Fortin police station and San Fernando Homicide Division.Anyone with information on Richards' whereabouts can contact the Point Fortin police station at 648-2426.
