The brother of a man who's been missing in Jamaica for over four months says the uncertainty is affecting him mentally and financially.

Gregory Ashodian was last heard from on Christmas Day and was supposed to return to Canada on New Year's Eve. Police in Jamaica still don't know where he is.

Gregory Ashodian's younger brother Aram is also his next door neighbour.

He's been taking care of his brother's home since his disappeaance, including keeping up with mortgage payments, but says the financial strain is taking its toll.

He says he has tried to come to some sort of arrangement with his brother's mortgage company but without proof of a crime, he is still being inundated with bills.

"I would like to pay the mortgage, I would like to pay for everything, but it's almost impossible for me alone to do this," he says. "I need a lawyer, I need help from the embassy. The Canadian embassy is trying its hardest to get information, but the Jamaican justice system is a little bit hard to work with."

Ashodian says he is suffering from constant anxiety and has been unable to work regularly since his brother vanished.

He says he just wants his brother home and get some closure.
