ZIZ News…June 14, 2012 — The police are yet to officially identify a body found in the White Gate area as that of a missing boy from St. Pauls.

The area was cordoned off as the Police carried out their investigation.

Meanwhile in a press release issued by the Press and Public relations Officer earlier today Thursday June 14, 2012, it stated that a search was conducted on the 8th June 2012 for the missing 17 yr old Jakeel Alford of St Pauls. Family members of Jakeel along with the Police K9 Unit searched from the seaside area to an area called Amsterdam.

Three persons two of which are juveniles were taken into police custody in connection with the missing 17yr old. The investigation is still on-going.
