It has been more than a month since 42-year-old engineer, Rohan Thompson, mysteriously disappeared from his home in Spanish Town, St Catherine.

Thompson vanished without a trace, causing a whirlwind of turmoil for his family members.

Neighbours last saw Thompson at home in Gordon Pen, Spanish Town on May 3, 2016.

His younger brother, Clovis Thompson, told THE STAR that suspicions were raised when calls to his phone went unanswered.

"My mom called me and said she was not getting through to his phone, so she asked me to get to him, but I didn't get through to him. Soon after, we realised he was actually missing because he wouldn't usually go that long without making contact," Clovis explained.

"When it actually dawned on me, it actually stressed me out. I had to stop from work for about two weeks. It had everybody under pressure. We are hoping to hear something so we could get some closure. We are trying to be calm and strong for each other," he said.

Since then, it has been an extremely difficult time for the family especially their mother, Greta Thompson.

"I try not to speak with her on that topic because I really don't want to cause her pain. She takes it very hard because he was one of her main source of financial support," Clovis said.

Rohan, who earned a Master's degree in engineering from the University of the West Indies, has been described as a family-oriented person, who was dedicated to his two sons, aged 4 and 7 years.

Yanique Williams, Rohan's sister, said he had many plans in the pipeline and he would never just run away.

For the past month, the family has been busy trying to locate their loved one, but to no avail.

"We have done posters, there is an online blog that we use to put up information about him, we have been in constant dialogue with the police," Williams said.

If you have information that can assist in locating Thompson, you may call 119 or the nearest police station.
