The police have adjusted their strategy in tracking down the person or persons involved in Wednesday's abduction of a newborn from the Victoria Jubilee Hospital in Kingston.
Head of the Jamaica Constabulary Force Corporate Communications Unit, Deputy Superintendent Dahlia Garrick, has disclosed that more manpower is being used to solve the crime.
The incident has shaken up the hospital causing new security measures to be implemented.
The police have launched a massive probe into the incident and the hospital has confirmed that it's exploring whether it was an inside job.
Garrick states that as the formal investigation continues, more resources are being dedicated towards cracking the case.This has become necessary because of a lack of certain evidence.
“Unfortunately in this case there is no image to help us. That makes it a little more difficult, but we have assigned additional resources,” said Garrick who added that the appeal to the public for assistance in finding the baby continues.
“Share whatever information they have, however insignificant. If you know someone who has strange habits of visiting wards just to say they want to see babies, if someone had a recent miscarriage and you then see them with a baby ….we want to know.”
Security increased up at health facilities
Meanwhile, changes have also been made to the security arrangements at health facilities in the western region of the island.
Director of the Western Regional Health Authority, Errol Green, confirmed that directives have been issued so that the process can be started.
Last Friday a baby was abducted at the Cornwall Regional Hospital's car park.
The baby was found two days later and the abductor arrested and later charged.
