A police search for two missing men turned up nothing but cannabis this morning.
In an effort to find Archibald Jones, 51, of Malverton, St. George, and Deane Pilgrim, 81, of Vauxhall, Christ Church, officers from the CID and uniformed members of the Southern Division, the Canine Unit and personnel of the Special Services Unit carried out searches concentrated in the two parishes around 6:35 am.
Also involved was a contingent from the Barbados Defence Force.
The missing men were not found but police say they will continue to search for them on another date.
During the operation, however, 185 cannabis plants ranging between two inches and 1 ½ feet in height were discovered growing in a bushy area at Windsor, St. George. The plants were seized but there were no arrests.
Meantime, lawmen are asking the public’s assistance in finding Jones and Pilgrim.
Archibald is 6’3” in height, has a dark complexion, stocky build, and a bushy, unkempt black and white beard. He has white spots on his face and he speaks quickly. He also has a mental history, and suffers from diabetes and hypertension.
Pilgrim was last seen wearing a beige peak cap, blue plaid shirt, grey long pants and white sneakers. He is about 5’ 5” tall, slim built, dark complexion with a round head, low hair cut, brown eyes and a pointed nose and walks with an erect appearance.
