(CMR) 48 hours after two teens went missing from the government operated Francis Bodden Children's Home they have been reported missing by the RCIPS. The policy of waiting days to ask for the public's assistance in locating missing teens has been criticized as being archaic and non-responsive.

Jemma is described as about 5’7” tall, of brown complexion, with brown eyes and short black hair. She was last seen wearing a floral night dress, grey tights, and grey and black hoodie and black socks.
Jasmin is described as about 5’0” tall, of slim build and brown complexion, with brown eyes and black hair. She was last seen wearing black tights, a black jacket with red and white stripes on the sleeves and no shoes.
Officers are encouraging Jemma and Jasmine to return home or attend the nearest police station immediately. Anyone with information on her whereabouts is encouraged to call the Bodden Town Police Station at 947-2220 or the M.A.S.H Unit at 649-6000.
