“Whoever took his life has to pay and they will pay very soon.”
Those were the words of a man said to be like a grandfather to nine-year-old Cyon Paul during his funeral yesterday.
Police are searching for a 15-year-old student of Woodbrook Secondary School who has been missing since February 27. His mother, Rose Rodriguez, a cashier in T&T Guardian classified’s department, said she last saw her son, Ronaldo, when he left home with his aunt and cousin to attend a Carnival event. “I told them that I don’t usually let him go out at night because I know how he gets when he does,” Rodriguez said.
She said she contacted her relatives and police that night after she noticed that it was getting late and her son, a Form Four student, had not returned home. Rodriguez said her relatives told her they dropped him home and saw when he entered his mother’s apartment at Paradise Heights in Morvant. She admitted that this was the second time her son had gone missing. The last time being over a year ago, when he left home and spent the night at a nearby savannah.
Anyone with information on Ronaldo’s whereabouts is asked to contact Rodriguez at 287-7169 or 352-4086.
