NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Bahamian student Eureston “Reese” Huyler has been reported missing in Delray Beach, FL.

According to relatives, Huyler was last seen on his way to register for classes at Palm Beach College on Thursday, Sept. 10, at 9am.

He is 6’4″, slim built, with a medium dark complexion.

Family members have asked anyone with information about his whereabouts to contact the Bahamas Consulate in Miami.

Yesterday, former Bahamas Consul General to Atlanta Randy Rolle expressed deep concerns over the missing student as a former diplomat and father to a college student.

Rolle made an appeal for all Bahamian students living abroad to register with their local consulate office.

“I empathize with his parents as words cannot describe how they must feel at this very moment,” he said.

“It is my hope and prayer that Mr. Huyler is found safe, and that he is able to make contact with his parents as soon as possible.

Rolle continued: “Today, I wish to appeal to all Bahamian students abroad to register with your local consulate office, to remain in contact with loved ones, and to always ensure that reliable persons know of your whereabouts at all times.

“Additionally, I take this opportunity to remind Bahamians students studying abroad to avoid social gatherings, to sanitize hands regularly and wear masks to protect yourselves against possible exposure Covid -19.

He added: “I pray for the safety of Mr. Huyler and the protection of all students studying abroad! We are all our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers.”
