Guam - The Guam Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division is searching for 59-year-old Simon Edgar. He was last seen by family members walking into the jungle area behind his Yigo residence near the Andersen Air Force Base back gate on February 20.
His niece, Sunhnia Hall, says family members searched for a week before reporting to authorities that he was missing. Hall says Edgar ran off two weeks ago after being confronted about allegedly sexually molesting a teenage girl at the beach the day before. Hall says the victim's father even came to their house the day Edgar went missing.
"He came down here really upset and punched our table and said he wanted Simon because he was going to kill him and throw him off Two Lovers Point," he said. "At first we search the boonies between the back and front road that goes to Andersen front gate, because we were thinking since he is upset and might be feeling shameful about what he is being accused of, we were worried about suicide so that's why family and friends decided to look for him."
Edgar is described as being 5'6" weighing about 150 pounds with gray hair. Hall says her uncle always wears black sunglasses because he has a left glass eye. Anyone with information is asked to call the family at 777-5316 (734-2149 or 653-5063) or Guam Crimestoppers at 477-HELP (4357).
