An island-wide search continued yesterday for a mother who has been missing for more than three weeks.

Rose Belboda, the mother of Chavelle Dillon-Burgess, was among the team who spent Mother抯 Day combing the island in search of the 26-year-old.

Antonio Belvedere, a friend of Ms Dillon-Burgess, said the search party at the West End included about 30 women, all mothers.

Mr Belvedere estimated that the community searches in tandem with police and the Royal Bermuda Regiment had covered about 85 per cent of the island.

He added: 揥e are taking no breaks. The whole community is up in arms over this, not just family and friends.?/p>

He spoke as the group worked their way through Hog Bay Park in Sandys, continuing west to Fort Scaur.

It came after police reported they were acting on social-media information in the search.

Stephen Corbishley, the Commissioner of Police, said the police抯 primary role was to find the woman safe and well.

The Royal Gazette reported on Friday that police had searched the Warwick home Ms Dillon-Burgess shared with lawyer Kamal Worrell and their 18-month-old child.

Mr Corbishley said on Twitter on Saturday: 揟here are lots of things going on that you might not be aware of.

揥e are in receipt of social-media information, and we do act on it.

揙ur goal is to find Chavelle safe and well, and that抯 our primary role. These inquiries require us all to work together.?/p>

Search teams on Saturday went to Ferry Reach in St George抯 to continue their efforts.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Ms Dillon-Burgess should call police on 211 or the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers hotline, 800-8477.
