Norwegian Missing For More Than 48 Hours
Norwegian Belizean citizen Christoffer Jan Roggema has been missing since Monday. Roggema who once owned the Cocoplum Garden Spa in Caye Caulker recently moved to the village of St. Margaret on the Hummingbird Highway. On Monday morning Roggema went to see property with a business partner and a land surveyor in the bush. A friend who is now leading the search tells us that Rogemma was battling a bad case of the flu along with a bronchial cough. He was encouraged not to go due to his illness and the difficulty of the hike into the area but he still insisted. After a while Roggema's illness caught up with him. The other men went back for the car to pick him up so he did not have to walk any further. They told Roggema to wait but when they got back he was nowhere to be found. They believe Roggema ventured off onto another trail while waiting. They were reportedly able to reach Roggema via phone but the signal was not strong enough and they lost him. The men immediately reported Roggema's absence to the police and they have been searching ever since. It has been more than 48 hours. The canine unit was brought in today but they still did not have any luck.
