With respect to the missing female student, contrary to the article, based on our investigations, the information published is untrue. We refute the information printed. The student was never found disoriented on Batts Rock Beach. The CCTV security footage of the UWI Campus was scrutinised and nothing was found to support that she was taken against her will from the institution. Our investigations show that the student left the campus alone, driving her motorcar.

We continue to investigate an incident involving a Dominican student which was alleged to have occurred off the compound in Cave Hill. We want to assure students and the public that there is nothing to fear as a result of these two reports. We will endeavour to update the public as to the progress of these investigations.
