By BBN Staff: Today marks the fifth day that Norwegian- Belizean Christofer Roggema is missing.
Roggema went missing on Monday morning when he reportedly went to see a property with a business partner and a land surveyor along the Sibun river.
A close relative disclosed to BBN that Roggema had been sick for a week with a flu, fever, and bronchial cough and was encouraged not to go but he insisted.
The men reportedly proceeded into high bushes and cut trails along the way to get to the property.
BBN has confirmed that police have been involved in the search for Roggema since Monday and soldiers from the Belize Defense Force joined the search yesterday.
Roggema’s children have arrived in Belize to assist in the search as well.
A member of the search team, Jaime Perez spoke to BBN about the search today. Perez told us that on Wednesday night, they found foot tracks that led to a creek where they believe Chris may have went to drink some water.
The search continues today and BBN understands that the Roggema family has engaged a professional tracker for today since Roggema had his Huawei phone with him the last time he was seen.
