Police use excavator in search for Jasmine

POLICE have increased their search efforts on a property just north of Grafton, next to the Pacific Hwy, where they are looking for clues on the whereabouts of Jasmine Morris.

Ms Morris was reported missing four years ago and was last seen at Bi-Lo supermarket, in South Grafton, on October 6, 2009.

She was aged 20 at the time.

Yesterday, Grafton Police used an excavator to dig for evidence on various parts of the property.

They were acting on information gained during Missing Persons Week when the Coffs/Clarence Local Area Command set up a mobile command centre, at the place Ms Morris was last seen.

Police confirmed several locations on the property were excavated but at time of print were yet to find any new evidence.

Jasmine Morris is described as being of Caucasian appearance, with an olive complexion, about 155cm tall, weighing approximately 55kg, with shoulder-length black hair and brown eyes.

At the time of her disappearance, Ms Morris was wearing a long black cotton skirt, a purple top, and thongs, and also had a handbag with her.

Investigators are appealing for anyone with information about her whereabouts or the circumstances surrounding her disappearance to come forward.

Police have also issued a statement saying any information given to them will be treated confidentially.

Anyone with information can contact Grafton Police on 6642 0222 or call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
