The Central Committee of the Jamaica Police Federation is today (June 9) launching an urgent appeal for blood to save the life of the eight-year-old child who was abducted from her school in Portmore, St Catherine and left for dead.

Our Today has been reliably informed that the child, an eight-year-old student of Braeton Primary School in Greater Portmore, is the daughter of a corporal attached to the Jamaica Constabulary Force’s (JCF) St Catherine South Police Division.

The girl remains hospitalised at the Bustamante Hospital for Children in St Andrew in critical condition.

The police group, in a statement, is calling on fellow JCF personnel and general public to donate blood at the Kingston-based National Blood Transfusion Service (NBTS) or any blood receivable facility islandwide. 

“Please donate to save the life of our colleague’s daughter!” the memo implored.

Initial reports indicate that the child was forcefully taken from school grounds on Thursday. 

The girl was later transported to the Vineyard Town community in St Andrew and thrown from the vehicle, and then discovered by distraught passers-by with her throat slashed.
