Search intensifies for missing taxi operator | car found abandoned

A Kingston family has become increasingly worried because one of its members remains missing although his motorcar has been found in the Riverton area of St Andrew.

The missing man is Rupert ‘Schoolboy’ Stephens, a 29-year-old resident of Conrod Lane in Kingston 4 .

One of his close relatives, who requested anonymity, told Jamaica Beacon that the vehicle was found ‘with no damage’ a day after Stephens disappeared.

He went missing just over two months after he started to operate a taxi between Half Way Tree and the University of the West Indies campus in Mona, as well as between Half Way Tree and 3 Miles.

“The situation seems delicate,” the relative further said.

“Stephens is a loving and caring individual. He is very jovial and started working little over two months as a taxi operator. We are worried, grieving and shocked. He is not a part of any gang, to our knowledge,” added the relative.

The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), in a media release earlier this month, said Stephens has been missing since Monday, June 4.

He is of dark complexion, slim build, and is 173 centimetres (5 feet 8 inches) tall.

The JCF said reports from the Half Way Tree Police are that, about 5am on June 4, Stephens was seen leaving home dressed in a purple and white stripe shirt, blue jeans and a pair of black shoes. All efforts to contact him have proven futile.

Persons knowing his whereabouts should contact the Half Way Tree Police at 926- 8184, police 119 emergency number or the nearest police station.
