Police conducted a search at the residence of the father of a missing woman’s baby on Friday.

Officers were seen at the residence of Kamal Worrell on Hillview Road in Warwick at about 1pm, some wearing personal protective equipment.

A Bermuda Police Service spokesman said: “Police executed a warrant as part of an ongoing investigation.”

Mr Worrell, 39, a defence lawyer, lived there with Chavelle Dillon-Burgess, the 26-year-old woman who has been missing for three weeks.

Ms Dillon-Burgess, the mother of an 18-month-old son, who was last seen at the house three weeks ago, was first reported  missing by her mother on Thursday, April 30, 2020.

Members of the public have joined police and the Royal Bermuda Regiment in a series of searches for her this week.

Earlier this week Assistant Commissioner of Police Antoine Daniels said: “It’s critical that members of a small community such as Bermuda is, combine their efforts by working in partnership to improve community safety, particularly under these types of circumstances.

“The BPS will continue to focus their efforts on locating Mrs Dillion-Burgess and have now opened an formal investigation into her disappearance,” he said.
“I take this opportunity to renew appeals for anyone with any information, no matter how minor you believe it may be, to make contact with Police on telephone number 211, or by calling the Confidential Crime Stoppers number, 800-8477.
It was also noted that “drones, social media, the dissemination of posters and traditional media releases have all been employed as part of the ongoing search effort”.

Volunteers participating in the search efforts included the missing mother’s job colleagues at Fairmont Southampton.

Acting Superintendent Arthur Glasford told a news conference on Monday: “It is highly uncommon for Chavelle to not make contact with her loved ones and close friends.”

Rose Belboda, Ms Dillon-Burgess’s mother, also urged the public for help to find her daughter.

Once again, anyone with information that could help the inquiry should contact police at 247-1624 or the confidential Crime Stoppers hotline on 800-8477.
