by November 30th, 2020

The Jamaica Constabulary Force, JCF, is assuring the public that the investigation into the disappearance of visually impaired student Jasmine Dean, is still open.

The assurance comes as the family of Dean, who went missing some nine months ago, celebrated her 23rd birthday on Saturday (November 28).

Head of the Police Corporate Communications Unit, Stephanie Lindsay, says despite the lack of updates on the case, it is still open and under investigation.

She notes however that there have not been any new leads into the disappearance of the university student.

While two persons, 40-year-old Tamar Henry, otherwise called ‘Braff’ and ‘Lavish’, of Bull Bay, St. Andrew and 36-year-old Gregor Wright, otherwise called ‘G’, have been charged in relation to the possession of items belonging to Dean, no one has been charged in relation to her disappearance.

Wright and Henry are charged with the offences of possession of identity information, 8 counts of unauthorized access to computer data and simple larceny.

Henry was also charged with the offence of possession of identity information and breaches of the Dangerous Drugs Act.

23-year-old Dean, of 11 Miles, in Bull Bay, St. Thomas, was last seen in Papine, Kingston 6, on Thursday, February 27.
