The police commissioner today made a renewed plea for someone to step forward and tell what they know about the disappearance of Chavelle Dillon-Burgess.

Stephen Corbishley said: “It’s been just about six months since Chavelle was last seen. Six months since her son was held by his mother. Imagine how he must feel.

“Bermuda is an extremely close-knit community, where we usually would look out for each other. That’s why it’s so baffling that even with a reward of up to $50,000 for information leading to the location of Chavelle, still nothing.

Ms Dillon-Burgess, the mother of a two-year-old son, has been missing since April.

Police are treating the case as a murder investigation.

Mr Corbishley said: “The BPS is thankful to those members of the public who’ve been providing lead Detective Sergeant Jason Smith and his team with assistance, it’s been most helpful.“

He added: “But there’s someone out there who ultimately knows exactly where Chavelle is and we are once more appealing for you to come forward.

“Do not let her legacy to her son be that she one day simply vanished, never again to be seen.”

Ms Dillon-Burgess was last known to be in contact with family and friends on April 11 - almost six months ago.

She was last seen at her home on Hillview Road, Warwick She was reported missing by her mother on April 30, about two weeks before her 27th birthday.

Ms Dillon-Burgess worked at the Fairmont Southampton and was a newly recruited Royal Bermuda Regiment soldier.

A 39-year-old man remains on police bail after he was arrested in connection with the suspected murder of Ms Dillon-Burgess in May.

Anyone with information that could help the inquiry should contact Detective Sergeant Smith on 717-0864 or the anonymous and confidential Crime Stoppers hotline on 800-8477
