The search for a missing man has ended tragically.

The body of 63-year-old Goldwyn Scott of Quarry Road, Arthur Seat, St. Thomas was discovered in a well in Husbands, St. James this morning.

Scott left his home early Wednesday to go walking as usual, but never returned.

Friends and family retraced his steps, which led them to the Caribbean Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology.

Acting Divisional Officer, Wayne Vaughn, confirmed the Barbados Fire Service responded to the area after receiving a call about eight minutes before 11 this morning.

While an officer rappelled into the well and confirmed the presence of a body, Mr. Vaughn explained why it took several hours before the body was retrieved.

Long time friend and former coworker Morris Springer, explained how surveillence video helped to pinpoint his location.

Mr. Springer described the deceased as a no-nonsense person and dedicated family man.

He said the retired clerical officer of Republic Bank Broad Street was one of their best workers.

Scott was married and had two daughters.
