Man still missing since Sunday; vehicle found with traces of blood

An upcoming entrepreneur from the Village of Roaring Creek, Cayo District, is missing since Sunday, and the family’s hopes of ever seeing him alive again are wearing thin.

According to reports,  24 year old Emerson Daly was last seen on Sunday at around 8 pm when he left Roaring Creek in his uncle’s vehicle, a grey Pathfinder, en route to Belmopan. The family reports seeing him in the company of another person who they could not identify.

“He borrowed my uncle’s vehicle, because his one was giving him trouble.  He told my uncle he would be back in 15 minutes. He won’t take long.

He just went to deal with something at Belmopan.  He didn’t say what.  He just said he would be back in 15 minutes.

He had on his white undershirt and a khaki pants and his slippers.  If he went out somewhere he would dress decent, ’cause he’s not that person[who] will have on regular clothes.”

A few hours after making the report, the family of Emerson received a call from police informing them that they had found the grey Pathfinder somewhere off mile 45 and 46 on the George Price Highway near the river. No one was inside the vehicle at the time, and reports are that there were traces of blood on the back seat of the vehicle.

It has been almost 48 hours since Emerson was last seen alive by his family.

“As his sister, I feel like someone has hurt him, because blood is in the vehicle.  I guess it has to be more than one person, because my brother he will not let anyone chance him or do him something like that. 

I don’t know why they did it.  Who did it, I would just want to ask them why they killed my brother, why take something very important from us, because Emerson is friendly.  He’s cool. He’s nice.  He’s outgoing.  Everybody knows him as that type that doesn’t give trouble, that has no enemies.

So I don’t know who would do something like that to him, especially take his life, because I know they hurt my brother.  I feel like they killed my brother, because Emerson would have found his way home.  He would have called.  He would have said, Sis or Mom, I am at this place, someone did this to me, or whatnot.  He would have found his way home.

So  I feel like they have hurt my brother, and I just wonder why they did it, because I lost my father already, like about five years now, and now to lose my brother is something really hard.

I would be the happiest person right now, if I would see my brother coming home safe to us. But I’m not sure if that’s going to happen, because it’s too long.  It’s already late and we don’t know anything about my brother, as yet.”


24 year old Emerson Daly was well known around the community, and made a living from planning and decorating events for Daly’s Dream Creation- a small business he created.

Belmopan Police reserved comment on the matter while investigations are still ongoing.
