Posters for eight missing on Abaco released

Police released the identities of eight more people – including two sisters – who have been reported missing following Hurricane Dorian.

However, the majority of the 424 people missing are still unaccounted for more than a month after Dorian decimated parts of Abaco and Grand Bahama.

Four of the people on the most recent list are from Marsh Harbour, Abaco.

They are Malik Moultrie, 23; Jeffrey Danis, 39; Leroy Lowe, 68; and Juanita Lowe, 81.

Ricardo James Capron, 49, was the only person on the list from Treasure Cay, Abaco.

The remaining three are from Dundas Town, Abaco.

They are Myeisha Edgecombe, 8; Jendayai Edgecombe, 17; and Michael Dawkins, 55.

Dorian was a dangerous Category 5 storm that ripped through Abaco and Grand Bahama in early September.

The deadly storm, which killed at least 61 people and left hundreds missing, had winds of 185 miles per hour with gusts up to 220 miles per hour, and a storm surge of 20 feet.

Superintendent Shanta Knowles, the press liaison for the Royal Bahamas Police Force, said police will release more missing persons posters as they receive more detailed information and photos of the missing.
