AFTER reopening the case files into the disappearance of Jasmine Morris earlier this month, Grafton police have received vital information to boost their investigation.

Jasmine's mother, Donna Geoghagan, has been supported by the police and this week renewed her plea for anyone with information on her daughter's 2009 disappearance to come forward.

"For the last four years, I have been waiting for Jasmine to walk through the door. Every day she doesn't it just gets harder," Ms Geoghagan said.

"I have no idea where she has gone and there is no reason why she would have run away.

"She is a lovely girl and I just want her to be home with me. If anyone out there knows anything, could they please tell the police and help bring our Jasmine home."

Ms Geoghagan said she feared there could be people in the community who knew about Jasmine's disappearance but were not coming forward for various reasons.

Detective Senior Constable Dale Keam reassured anyone with information that it would be treated with the "utmost confidentiality".

Police set up their mobile command van earlier this month at Bi-Lo in South Grafton, the last place Jasmine was seen on October 6, 2009, and received useful leads from the public.

"Several small pieces of information provided by the Grafton community have opened up other avenues of investigation, which I will be pursuing in the coming weeks," Snr Const Keam said. "There are still many more people to talk to.

"There appears to have been a reluctance for some people to come forward in the recent weeks and I want to assure them that information provided is treated with the utmost confidentiality."

Jasmine was 19 at the time of her disappearance and was reported missing on October 20, 2009.

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

"Jasmine has not accessed her bank accounts since she was last seen and inquiries nationwide have found no trace of her," Snr Const Keam said.

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