Video: Son Of Missing Visitor Issues Public Plea

May 5, 2014

After Canadian visitor William Grange arrived in Bermuda on May 2 and went missing shortly after, police made a plea for the public’s assistance in locating the 67 year old man.

Now, three days after his disappearance, police have said that locating Mr. Grange is a “critical priority,” with his son also pleading with the Bermudian public to help locate his missing father, who has been described as suffering from short-term memory loss.


Speaking today, John Grange said he implores all Bermudians to keep an eye out for his father, and also extended his thanks to the community for their support thus far.

He explained that his father is on anti-seizure medication, which he has now been without for days.

John Grange said that while his father can recall his grandchildren’s name, his short term memory is affected and if you introduced yourself to him, he may not recall you 5 minutes later.

When asked has he been missing before, his son said he once went missing for a short while, however they found him in their backyard.

“Please take a look in your backyard, in a shed, under your stairs. Anywhere where somebody might be hiding,” his son said.

Mr. Grange was last seen wearing beige pants, a blue shirt, brown jacket, and brown shoes, and is described as a white male, 5’9″ tall with white hair. He was staying at the Cambridge Beaches Resort in Sandys, and was last seen on Friday evening.

Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of Mr. William Grange is urged to contact the main police telephone number 295-0011 immediately, reporting all information.

    This was so painful to watch. My heart is breaking for this poor man and his family. How horrible to be lost in a foreign country, and your family not knowing where you are.
    I pray for his safe return to his loved ones.

    My husband went missing in the states on Sept 2, 2013. Despite the fact that his medical doctors wrote letters and made phone calls to the Governor of the state of Kansas pleading with them to issue a “Silver Alert,” the Gov refused. My husband, age 54, did not meet the “minimum standard” of age 65 to issue such an alert.

    He too was in the early stages of cognitive decline. He got in his van one evening around 8:00 pm, and by 11:30 we contacted our local police with our concerns. Nothing was done. We (me/my family) received a call by a police captain 3.5 WEEKS LATER indicating they had “made a mistake” and had not included the description of my husband’s car or his license plate number in their police report.

    My husband was found 8 weeks later—at the bottom of an 80 ft ravine in Utah; he had fallen asleep at the wheel after driving for 15-17 hours.

    I know all too well the absolute horror and agony associated with a missing loved one. There is no “social template” as to how to “help” or “console” someone who is in this situation. The pain is indescribable.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to this family. And I APPLAUD the local authorities for taking this matter so seriously/critically so quickly. That type of quick action would have saved my husband’s life.
