The family of a 20-year-old young man who went missing fears the worst. Oswald Arnold of Roaring Creek Village was last seen alive around 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 17, 2018 when he told his family that he would be going on an overnight fishing trip with four friends, all from Roaring Creek. The friends have all made it back safely but Arnold is yet to be found. Arnold’s family says that they have reasons to believe that something disturbing happened on the trip, and they want answers.

It was on the return of the four others that Arnold’s family became suspicious. Since then, they’ve been on several searches for Arnold, which have since become futile. According to Arnold’s aunt, Natalee Arnold, the family has received credible reports that her nephew was killed and that his body was either dumped in or buried along the river.

Arnold’s aunt admits that her nephew was no saint and has come in contact with the law before; she fears that his past caught up to him. According to Natalee, the young men that her nephew left with were not his friends and only wanted to get close to him to hurt him since he witnessed a murder one of them committed. She believes that the fishing trip was just a cover.

The police have since questioned one of the four men who went with Arnold. According to that person, he left Arnold with the three other men and has not heard from or seen him since. The police have joined family and community members in the search for Arnold in the Iguana Creek area but have also proved futile in their efforts.
