A Bridge Cot, St George father is desperately hoping to hear word about his 15-year-old son Lindy London who went missing after he reportedly got into difficulty while at the hot pot at Brighton Beach, on Sunday night.
Leroy London said he is afraid that he may not see his child again.
“To me the worst happen already because I ain’t seeing him. This got me can’t even concentrate properly because I just studying about he. I feel so devastated. It is even hard for me to work. Right now I just waiting on a phone call to hear at least something . . .” said the concerned father who admitted that he felt tired just worrying.
London said he has had limited sleep since the disappearance, because his mind is busy wondering how the under-aged boy got to the beach when he left home around 3 p.m. on that same day to “go out”.
London said the teenager who he said cannot swim, did not tell him he would be going to the hot pot.
“He tell me he going out. He said he was going to a friend, but I hear he didn’t go there. He went somewhere else. He ain’t know anything about the hot pot. I never hear he mention anything about the hot pot. When I do get to the bottom of the story, a fella and another fella carry he to the hot pot. So I am here waiting on some answers,” the father said.
London recalled that hours later police took him to the area at the hot pot where Lindy was last seen.
Lindy’s mother Josephine Hughes was not at home when Barbados TODAY visited. However, London said she too was finding it difficult to cope with the disappearance of her son.
Last December, Lindy, a former St George Secondary School student returned home after spending almost five years at the Government Industrial School.
Showing signs that he wanted to walk a fresh path in life, the teenager was scheduled to start school at the New Horizon Academy, Brittons Hill, St Michael, on Tuesday.
London explained that Lindy, who has five siblings, was excited about attending the new institution and his books and uniforms had been purchased.
“He was really excited to go to school. He just wanted to go to school to further his education. He was looking forward to this new start. You know children hard ears, but still everybody in the area like him,” said the father.
