The number of missing people in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian fell to 608, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) said yesterday.
It represents a decrease of over 53 percent since the last number provided by the government, which was 1,300.
“As of September 24, 2019, the number of missing persons found stood at 692,” NEMA said in a press release.
“The result was due to staff of the Department of Social Services manning the Missing Persons Help Desk, who made contact with individuals who would have previously reported loved ones missing following Hurricane Dorian.
“Social Services is encouraging persons to continue to call the Missing Persons Help Desk to report their loved ones and family relatives missing or found.”
