Missing wanted man may be in Jamaica

| 23/10/2013

(CNS): Following the disappearance of a West Bay man who is wanted by the police but who dived into stormy seas on 1 October to evade capture the RCIPS has stated that it now thinks he could be in Jamaica.  A police spokesperson said Wednesday that Anthony Smith (31) who has not been seen since diving into the sea near West Bay public beach as he was being chased by officers may have managed to get off the island. “The RCIPS has received credible information that Mr Smith is off island and has been in Jamaica since two days after he was first reported missing. This information is being followed up on, and once confirmed a further update will be provided,” the spokesperson added.

There had been concerns for Smith’s welfare as the sea was rough and currents strong when he jumped in.

Despite an extensive search that night and for several days after however, there was no sign of the man. However, if the information given to police proves to be correct the man who is wanted by the courts for failing to appear in on-going criminal cases and by the police in relation to their enquiries must’ve managed to get out of the ocean without being spotted by the search team and hide until he was able to make his way to the neighbouring island.

      I don't think any of the posters mean it literally that he swam from here to Jamaica. We just have a sense of humor – you should try it!
