The Jamaica Constabulary Force's Corporate Communications Unit a short while ago confirmed that six-year-old Phaedra Martin, who was reportedly kidnapped while walking with her father last Wednesday, has been found. The CCU also said that a man is now being questioned by the police.
Reports are that he turned himself in to the police with Phaedra yesterday.
The communication arm of the JCF could not, however, provide further details.
Last Wednesday, the police launched a manhunt after Phaedra, who is from Berwick Road, Kingston 13, was reportedly taken from her father by unknown assailants on Ransford Avenue, Kingston, about 1:30 pm.
Phaedra’s father had allegedly picked her up from school and the two were walking along Ransford Road when two men, one armed with a knife, attacked them.
The police reported then that the assailants took the child in a motor car, which was parked on the roadway with three persons aboard, including a female, before they fled the scene.
