Missing Persons Week: What happened to Jasmine Morris?

AN EXCAVATOR used to dig for evidence north of Grafton unearthed no clues to the disappearance of Jasmine Morris.

Numerous sightings of a young woman between Woody Head and Coffs Harbour matching her description came to nought.

Almost six years since the then 19-year-old was last seen by her brother at the South Grafton Bi-Lo on October 6, 2009, her whereabouts are still unknown.

After failing to make contact with family and friends, Ms Morris, also known as Jasmine Moore, was reported missing on October 20, 2009.

Her mother, Donna Geoghagan, said there was no reason why she would have run away and in August 2013 pleaded for information after Grafton detectives reopened the case files into her disappearance.

"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.

"If anyone out there knows anything, could they please tell the police and help bring Jasmine home."

During Missing Persons Week that same month police received information from the community which opened other avenues of investigation.

In September 2013, an excavator was used to dig for evidence on various parts of a rural property just north of Grafton, next to the Pacific Hwy.

Despite the investigation's renewed vigour, no clues were found.

Ms Morris is described as being fair-skinned but Aboriginal in appearance, with an olive complexion, about 155 centimetres tall, weighing approximately 55 kg, with shoulder-length black hair and brown eyes.

At the time of her disappearance, Ms Morris was wearing a long black cotton skirt, thongs and several rings on the fingers of both her hands.

She has not accessed any of her bank accounts since she was last seen.

Anyone with information is urged to phone CrimeStoppers on 1800 333 000.
