Deputy Commissioner of Police Fitz Bailey says the police are making progress in their search for Opposition member of parliament for East Kingston and Port Royal, Phillip Paulwell’s daughter and her mother.

It has been almost a month since 27-year-old Toshyna Patterson and 10-month-old Sarayah Paulwell went missing. They were last seen on September 9, standing at the gate of their Gilmour Drive premises in St Andrew.

At a press briefing on Tuesday, Bailey gave an update on the case.

“The investigation is going well. We’ve done several lines of enquiry. We’ve used the resources that are available within the JCF … and I think in relation to the Paulwell matter, we’re making some strides,” he said.

He cautioned, however, that he could not provide details on the matter because the investigations are ongoing.

Paulwell previously expressed that he remains optimistic that his daughter and her mother will be returned safely.

The 27-year-old was dressed in a brown tube top, army green sweat pants, and a pair of black Crocs, while her daughter was donned in a pink onesie.

Patterson is of dark complexion, slim build, and about 163 centimetres (5 feet 4 inches) tall, while Sarayah is of dark complexion and about 75 centimetres tall.

Anyone knowing the whereabouts of the two is asked to contact the Half-Way Tree police at 876-926-8184, 119 police emergency number, or the nearest police station.
