“I do not mind if they kill him or hiding he, I just want to know that he is alive or if he is dead,” were the words of Seeta Persaud, mother of missing Troy Greenidge.Missing: Troy Greenidge08A devastated mother whose son went missing two years ago is pleading with the public for help about her son’s whereabouts.Greenidge of John Fernandes Housing Scheme, Georgetown, went missing on October 15, 2014. He had left home to collect his salary from his employer in Diamond, East Bank Demerara and that was the last time his family saw him.Speaking with Guyana Times on Saturday, his mother related that her son was a miner and had only returned from the interior days before he went missing. “He came out of the interior with only half of his salary and he said he was going to collect the balance.”The distraught woman said Saturday marked two years since her son went missing and she is still unclear of details surrounding his disappearance.The woman explained that she is frustrated with the investigations being carried out by the Guyana Police Force (GPF) since she has been running around for two years with no formal word from the Police.“I am doing my own investigation and every time I get a lead I would give it to the Police officers but they would just take it and say that they are still investigating. It is like they just get the case, put it down and forget about it. All they keep saying is that they are investigating. Every officer I go to they say go to another person. They just gat me running from station to station”, said the frustrated mother.Persaud is further pleading with the GPF to carry out a thorough investigation into her son’s disappearance.“I am only asking the GPF to do a proper investigation for my son. He deserves to be found. All my family and I want is some closure, to know what happen to my son; he was only 27 years at his disappearance; he would have been 29 this year,” Persaud related.Greendidge is the father of two children.Anyone with information that will lead to Greenidge is asked to make contact with the nearest Police Station, or relatives on 610-1537.
