Conrad Jones, of West Street, Belize City, is now missing for 5 months. He was last seen by his family on Wednesday, September 12, when he left his home to go to work at the Customs Department in Belize City. Reports are that on that Wednesday, he went to Benque Viejo, where he works at the Belize Customs as a customs guard.

After he finished work for the day, a driver drove him down and left him at the Hattieville roundabout to get a passage to continue his journey to Belize City.
