Missing couple’s car found

KINGSTON, Jamaica – The motor vehicle belonging to missing Montego Bay couple, Thomas and Marjoke Chambers, was reportedly recovered in the Drewsland area of Kingston on Tuesday afternoon.

The Gleaner understands that the vehicle – a red Nissan Expert – was in the process of being scrapped by persons when police on patrol made the discovery.

“Two men are in custody in relation to the scrapping of the vehicle. There is no immediate evidence that they are linked to the disappearance of the couple, but they are being further questioned,” a highly placed police source disclosed.

Sixty-three-year-old Thomas Chambers and his wife Marjoke, 61, of Spot Valley, St James, have been reported missing from their home since June 12.

Police say the couple left home for an undisclosed destination in their Nissan Expert about 5pm on the day in question, and have not been seen or heard from since. Efforts to contact them have proven futile.

The couple are Caucasian and each of stout build. Chambers is about 173 centimetres tall while his wife is about 168 cm tall.

Chambers is a well-known real estate developer in western Jamaica, and ran on the People’s National Party ticket in the 2007 local government election in his bid to represent the St James Parish Council’s Salt Spring division.
