Help find Jasmine

JASMINE Morris was a happy 19-year-old girl who would socialise with anyone.

So exactly why she disappeared unexpectedly on October 6, 2009 is unknown and has left her family and police with grave concerns.

But hope remains police can reopen the case files and find the missing pieces of the puzzle.

As part of Grafton police's National Missing Persons' Week efforts Jasmine Morris, who was also known as Jasmine Moore, is the third case in a series of four for which detectives are appealing for information.

The Police Mobile Command Van was set up in the Bi-Lo car park in South Grafton on Thursday and will return next week so anyone with information can help out.

Detective Senior Constable Keam said he received new information on Thursday and hoped he could receive more.

"Jasmine's disappearance has been actively investigated since it was reported and police are no closer to establishing her where- abouts," he said.

"I will continue to seek the assistance from other police agencies such as the missing persons unit and the unsolved homicide squad in an attempt to solve this case."

Jasmine was last seen by a family member outside South Grafton Bi-Lo on October 6, 2009.

After she hadn't been seen by family or friends for about two weeks, she was reported missing on October 20.

At the time of her disappearance she was wearing a long black cotton skirt, a purple top, thongs and also had a handbag with her.

"Jasmine has not accessed her bank accounts since she was last seen and enquiries nation wide have found no trace of her," Detective Keam said.

"There have been a number of unconfirmed sightings of Jasmine, however these were investigated and have not produced any hard evidence.

"Considering it is approaching the four years mark since Jasmine was seen I have grave concerns for her welfare.

"There doesn't appear to have been anything happening in Jasmine's life at this time that would cause her to disappear".

Detective Keam said he hoped renewed appeals would ensure anyone with information, no matter how trivial, contact police.

"I am also keen to hear from a number of people who anonymously contacted police about Jasmine's disappearance ," he said.

The last in the series of four missing person cases will be featured in next Saturday's Daily Examiner.

 

Anyone with information is urged to contact Coffs Clarence local area command on 6642 0222 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
