The body of a young man reported missing since last week was found at Road Reef on Sunday morning, according to acting Police Information Officer Carl Mason.


Michael Poole, 20, was dead when police found his body after a two-day search, said Mr. Mason.

On Saturday night around 5 p.m., Mr. Poole’s mother, Musonda Poole, posted a message on the Facebook page BVI Community Board, asking for assistance in finding her son.

“Please help us find Michael Poole, who has been missing for over 24 hours,” the post stated. “Was last seen in the Prospect Reef area wearing a gray polo shirt, khaki pants and brown shoes.”

Mr. Mason said no cause of death has been reported, but that no foul play is suspected. A post-mortem will be conducted later this week to find out the cause of death, he said.
