Still no arrest in Manchester kidnapping
THE Manchester police are yet to make an arrest in relation to the abduction in November of National Housing Trust (NHT) worker Neisha Daley.
Superintendent Marlon Nesbeth, who heads the Manchester police, told the Jamaica Observer yesterday that no arrests have been made in the case that dominated headlines in early November when the 32-year-old mother was reportedly abducted at gunpoint from her home in the parish.
The reported incident occurred on Thursday, November 7 but the woman managed to escape a couple days later. A ransom of $1 million was demanded for her safe release. The money had not been paid, the Observer understands.
She had been held at a house close to the Wigton Windfarm in Rose Hill, South Manchester, the police say.
Police reported that Daley, said to be a loans officer at the NHT, had arrived home with her two children when she was accosted by gunmen. She was reportedly taken at gunpoint inside her house and laptop computers and other valuables, including jewellery, were taken by the gunmen. They then took her away without harming the children.
