KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Detectives attached to the Major Investigations Task Force (MIT) along with colleagues from the St Andrew South Division are awaiting forensic results to determine if a decomposing body found near Plantation Heights yesterday is that of missing priest Charles Brown.

The police issued a Missing Person Alert last Thursday after a report was filed about the clergyman. His Suzuki motor car was found abandoned in the Plantation Heights area shortly after his disappearance.

The police say they have intensified their search for the person or persons responsible for the crime.

Citing public support as vital to the outcome, commanding officer for the St Andrew South Police Division, Senior Superintendent Delroy Hewitt is appealing to anyone with information to contact the Hunts Bay Police at 923-7111, 119 Police emergency number or the nearest police station.
