Rodney and his car vanished on the day he was supposed to show up in court to provide the last part of his evidence in the murder trial during the PI at the Georgetown Magistrates Court but was not heard from or seen since.

The man was at the time of disappearance driving a sliver Grey Allion with registration number PRR 1076 and calls to his mobile device have all gone unanswered.

The mother of the still missing man related to members of the press that she believes the persons who are accused of the crime back in April of this year involving the cousin of Rodney, might have been able to get access to him.
