Property search in missing person case comes to an end

POLICE have finalised the search of a property in South Grafton following the 2009 disappearance of Jasmine Morris.

On Monday police commenced a search of a property on the Pacific Hwy at South Grafton after receiving information during the recent Missing Persons Week campaign.

The search continued yesterday using an excavator to examine several areas of the property.

Investigators have stressed that they were greatly assisted by the current owners of the property who have resided there only for the past 18 months.

Despite extensive investigation by Grafton detectives there has been no further information about Ms Morris.

Jasmine Morris, also known as Jasmine Moore, was last seen outside the Bi-Lo supermarket in South Grafton about 3pm on the 6th of October, 2009.

Ms Morris was reported missing to police on the 20th of October, 2009 after she had not been seen by family or friends for a number of days.

It has been reported Ms Morris, who was 20 at the time, was last seen around the Grafton and South Grafton area in the time following her disappearance.

Jasmine Morris is described as being of Caucasian appearance, with an olive complexion, about 155cm tall, weighing approximately 55 kgs, 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.
