Skeletal remains found in Piparo

The Hunters Search and Rescue team (HSRT) found skeletal remains in the Piparo area on Wednesday and they suspect that it may belong to missing Down syndrome man, Ricardo Guerra.

The HSRT found the remains at 12.50 p.m. in a ravine about 30 metres (100 feet) off Pascal Trace.
They said clothing was also found at the scene.

The team was searching for Guerra, 40, who went missing from his New Grant home on April 4th at around 5.30 p.m.

He told his family his brother, Joshua, and their father that he was walking to a nearby shop.

However, two days later Guerra was spotted at around 11 p.m. by villagers at the VIP bar in the community.

Joshua said that his brother usually walked to a friend’s house in Piparo and returns home.

The remains were removed to the mortuary pending an autopsy at the Forensic Science Centre in St James
