Caique Trindade - Rest in Peace

******UPDATE****** It has been widely reported this morning that the body found by the Garda sub-aqua team in Clondalkin yesterday was in fact, that of Caique Trindade.. Our thoughts our with his mother today at this heart breaking time.. the people of Clondalkin and the Brazillian community can continue to show their support for her by donating to, what will be, substantial costs.. a small gesture by many will help reduce her financial burden.. Thank you and may Caique rest in peace.. 24 year old, Caique Trindade has been missing from his Clondalkin home since March 6th. He was expected to attend English college in the city that morning but never arrived. He had lost his phone the day previous. His wallet, with nothing missing, was  found on the Fonthill Road, close to St John's Wood entrance on March 8th. His mother was already worried about his state of mind as a result of a phone call they had a couple of days beforehand.  On hearing he had gone missing, she dropped everything and came to Dublin. She has already incurred huge expense and is struggling financially. However, she is determined to stay in Dublin until her son is found. You can help by donating whatever you can afford.. every cent will go directly to her and will hopefully alleviate a little stress so she can focus on finding her son. Thank you.. I've received a message from GoFundMe saying all funds are on hold until the following information is provided.. Question 1 - A clear explanation of how you know the beneficiary/ies - Answer - A close friend of mine is married to Ana, a member of the Brazillian community in Ireland. On Saturday, March 24th, I went along to one of the planned Garda searches. While there we met Caique's mother Valclecia. We asked, as a gesture from the local community, if we could set up a fund to support her and she agreed.. Since then Ana has remained in close contact with her. A clear plan on how you intend to deliver your donations Answer - All funds raised are going into Ana's bank account. As they become available,  they will then be tranfered directly to Valclecia on a daily basis until campaign is finished. I would have perfered to transfer the funds directly into Valclecia's account, but didn't want to intrude during this tragic time..  I hope this clarifies matters, Thanks, Cathal. Further information for GoFundMe Point 1. How you are related to your beneficiary. Answer.. I met the benificiary (Valclecia de Jesus Trindade) on a Garda search for her son. Point 2. That you will be withdrawing the funds in your name. Answer.. the account number submitted to GoFundMe is that of Ana Helena Vilela Resende, who is a close friend of the benificiary, Valclecia. Point 3. How exactly you will be delivering the funds to your beneficiary.. Answer..
