A distraught Eunice Chambers disclosed that her daughter had told her that the alleged suspect had made romantic advances while offering her rides to work in the mornings.
According to Chambers, her daughter rebuffed the suspect’s overtures, but he still offered to take her to work despite the rejection.
“It is just two of us and now she is gone. She is never coming back,” said a weeping Chambers as she was consoled by Prime Minister Andrew Holness on Saturday at the family home in Independence City, Portmore.
“I really want him put away for good. The other thing I don’t know is if he had done something like this before, so I want the court to take him off the streets,” she added.
One man, a 50-year-old mechanic, has been detained.
The disappearance of the accounting clerk, a former St Andrew High School and Cedar Grove Academy student, raised alarm last Wednesday after she did not turn up at her job in Kingston.
