The family of Canadian national Brian Townsend is in a frantic search for the missionary who has been reported missing from his home in Valley of Peace village, Cayo district.
According to an internet post by the family, Townsend was discovered missing from his house on Christmas morning.
The online post which goes under the heading of “Brian Townsend Missing Belize” says that “what we do know is there were signs of an aggressive struggle in his room that carried out the door and across the lawn to where his truck was parked. Brian’s phone and computer are missing as well. It goes without saying that we have been unable to contact Brian by any means at all.”
Brian Townsend’s son Kory and a family friend are due to travel to Belize from Canada on Saturday to join in the local efforts to find Brian.
