Twenty three days after his reported disappearance, the whereabouts of Chairman of Hattieville Kevin ‘Ras’ Carcamo remains unknown. Carcamo was last seen in the Freetown Sibun area on Sunday, July 20, where he was working as part of a seismic operation being carried out by Discoverseis Geophysical Services but did not return with the team.
And today, The Belize Coalition to Save our Natural Heritage issued a release concerned about Carcamo not being found yet. The release states that ‘ the sudden and inexplicable disappearance of Carcamo gives rise for grave concern about workers’ safety and protocols involved in seismic surveys by oil companies operating in Belize,’ end quote. Under the current Petroleum Act Regulation, the issue of workers safety, rights and benefits are not addressed adequately …and employers are not obligated to provide health or life insurance to the workers who are employed as casual workers, despite the dangerous nature of their work.
On Friday, August 1st, traces of blood was found in the Freetown Sibun area but it has not been confirmed if it is Carcamo’s or if it is even human blood. Carcamo was last seen wearing a blue overall with Discoverseis logo. The company Carcamo was working for, Discoverseis, has already pulled out of the search to continue normal operations. However, they are still offering a $10,000 reward for information that would lead to his safe recovery.
