It has now been more than three months since 22-year-old Jasmine Deen went missing. Since then, her father, Lloyd Deen, has been clinging to hope that one day he would be reunited with her. But now, his hope has grown into frustration.

"Me mad fi find my daughter. Me know she deh somewhere! Me caah sleep. All now me caah sleep. My life gone," Lloyd told THE STAR.

Jasmine, a visually impaired student of The University of the West Indies, Mona, has been missing since Thursday, February 27. On March 18, the police announced that a person of interest had been identified in the case.

Not satisfied

"The investigation is ongoing. The person that was picked up, he is still in custody. He was charged in relation to the ATM card that was used for a transaction in the ATM. We would call that a holding charge, because he had her ATM card," assistant commissioner of Police Fitz Bailey told THE STAR in April.

Attempts to contact Bailey for an update yesterday proved futile.

Meanwhile, Lloyd Deen, desperate to find his daughter, says he is not satisfied with the work being done by the police. "More time me not even hear nothing from them," he said.

Lloyd is calling on the parents of other missing children across Jamaica. He hopes they can unite efforts and successfully bring their children home.

"Man deh yah a tek people pickney! The other children ... weh dem live? Weh dem parents dem deh? Me wah go pon a campaign ... me wah go pon a walk everywhere. We want the children dem. Me want my own! A wait me a wait, enuh."

"Me nah stop til we find the pickney dem and we nah wait forever either. We nuh know wah fi do but this a get serious," he added.
