According to eyewitness accounts, the two men were forcibly taken off the streets sometime during the evening of Saturday March 10, 2012 and have not been heard or seen since.

Police say they have recovered the vehicle believed used in the abductions and have already questioned a few persons who may be involved, but no arrests have been made.
Other unconfirmed reports out of Dominica say that two of the key persons involved in the abductions may have already left the island to return to Guadeloupe.
The mother of Alfred told a local radio station that she was informed that her son was stabbed and that Joseph was shot to death. Police however could not confirm the reports and continue to search for the two.
