Remembrance service for missing woman

A remembrance service will be held on Friday to mark three years since missing mother-of-five Anna Evans was last seen by colleagues and family. 

Staff of the Department of Environmental Health, where Ms Evans worked, and Ministry of Health, Sports, Youth and Culture will host the service at Victory Tabernacle on Eastern Avenue at 11:30 a.m. Friday, Jan. 24.  

Ms Evans, 37 at the time of her disappearance, worked at the George Town Landfill and was last seen there on Jan. 27, 2011. The landfill was extensively searched in the days following her disappearance, but no trace of her has been found. 

As colleagues of Ms Evans will be attending the remembrance service Friday, the George Town landfill will be closed from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m Friday, as will the main office of the Grand Cayman Department of Environmental Health at 580 North Sound Road and the solid waste dispatch offices. 

The department advised that the Sister Islands’ offices and operations will remain open during the day.  

Businesses that need to dispose of large amounts of waste are advised to do so early in the morning Friday or after 1 p.m. The 24 hour drop-off area will remain open to facilitate disposal of small residential loads, the DEH said in a statement last week.
