(CMR) A prominent member of the People's National Party in Jamaica, Phillip Paulwell, has expressed fear that his 10-month-old daughter and her mother were abducted from their home in St Andrew on Saturday.
According to the Jamaica Gleaner, the police have launched a search for Toshyna Patterson, otherwise called ‘Tosh' and her baby Sarayah, who were last seen about 7 a.m. at their gate on Gilmour Drive in St Andrew.
Patterson is of dark complexion, slim build and about 5 feet 4 inches tall while Sarayah is of dark complexion and about 75 centimetres tall.
Patterson was dressed in a brown tube top, army green sweat pants and a pair of black crocs, while Sarayah was dressed in a pink onesie.
Paulwell is the Member of Parliament for Kingston Eastern and Port Royal and Leader of Opposition Business in the House of Representatives.
“This is scary and comes at a time when I have been threatened by scammers who have hacked my phone and banking data and are demanding money to release them,” he said in a statement Saturday evening.
Paulwell said, “I have made it clear that I will not give in to extortionists, but this is a serious and dangerous development. I am worried sick over their safety and hope the police, who have launched a high-level investigation, will find the abductors and get them both home safe and sound.”
