Left with a grandson who constantly asks for his father, the mother of Jevon Daniels, who has been missing for two weeks, fought back tears in a heart felt plea for information on the whereabouts of her son.

Jevon Daniels, 35, has not been seen since May 16th.

In a joint appeal for public assistance yesterday, police said Daniels disappeared in “very suspicious circumstances”, which “raises more suspicions that something untoward has happened to him”.

His mother, Gloria Daniels, appealed to the community for help with any information on where her son is.

“I’m here imploring you: if you have any information as to where my son is, please, please, please give it up.

“Every night I lay my head down, but there is no rest. I go through every day wondering will today be the day that I find out all the answers I’m looking for,” said Ms Daniels.

“I appreciate that some of you might not be willing to give information that I am sure some of you have, for one reason or another. But I am begging you — if you know anything please let us know.

“I ask you again to put yourself in my place, in my grandson’s place, in my other son’s place. A mother and a son and a brother wants their daddy and their son and their brother back. Please, please, help us.

“Let your conscience guide you to make the right decision. My family would be eternally grateful,” she said.

She described her son as an avid football fan who, like most people his age, likes to party”.

“I know a lot of people know my son and know about my son, but you know what? That’s my son. What he did or did not do does not matter. I just want my son, she said.

Her appeal was echoed by her brother, Gregory Albuoy.

“I love my nephew — like my sister said, if you know something, say something. A lot of you from that area know me from different circumstances. As I love you as my sons, this is what I am asking of you. If you know something, say something. All of you from that area know me. It’s time to pay up,” he said.

Detective Sergeant Jason Smith, who is leading the ongoing investigation, said the 35-year-old Sandys parish man’s long absence was “very concerning, and raises more suspicions that something untoward has happened to him”.

“The Sandys community is a very tight knit community, and Jevon’s circles of friends are even tighter,” he said.

“One of you knows where he is, and what has happened to him. Anyone that saw or heard from Jevon the week of May 16 — we want to hear from you. Where you saw him is very important to this investigation.”

“The circumstances surrounding the disappearance of Jevon are suspicious and today we are making a joint appeal with his mother Gloria Daniels to get the public’s assistance in reuniting Jevon with his mother, son, girlfriend and friends.”

Anyone with any information is urged to call the Serious Crime Unit on 7170864 or the confidential Crime Stoppers hotline at 800 8477.

Mr Daniels is described as between 5ft 2in and 5ft 5in, brown-skinned, with brown eyes and a close haircut. He also has a tattoo on his left forearm.
