BREAKING NEWS: Missing Caymanians found

The mystery surrounding the whereabouts of a missing Caymanian woman and her 12-year-old son ended without much fanfare when both returned home Thursday, alive and well, after being reported missing since last Saturday.

“They turned up about 10:20 this morning, while the police were questioning her husband,” said Constabulary Communication Network liaison officer, Corporal Peter Salkey. “She appears to be in good health. The police are presently speaking with all three of them.”

Twenty-nine-year-old Jasmine ‘Jazzy’ Williams and her son Carlo Webster left their home in Freeport, St. James to go grocery shopping about 12:30 p.m. on the day in question, but did not return.

A missing persons report was made after Williams’ husband received a text message stating that they would be home between Sunday and Monday morning.

Prior to her return, Cabinet Secretary of the Cayman Islands, Orrett Connor made contact with The Gleaner‘s Western Bureau office after reading about the incident, and was happy when he was told that she was safe.

“I learned of the situation while reading The Gleaner online, and began making some enquiries.”

“There is a keen interest in The Gleaner’s report, as they were identified as Cayman nationals,” he said – I have been in contact with our visa office there (in Jamaica) and they had also seen the article, but we are very happy to learn that all is well.”
