The country’s top police officer has promised to make his own assesment of the case surrounding Vincia James who has been missing for more than three weeks, with a view to make a determination as to the way forward.
Commissioner of Police Wendel Robinson said he is saddened over the fact that the mother of one has not yet been located.
“It saddens me and I can only imagine what the family is going through at this point in time. I want to implore those within the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) that is charged with that responsibilty to continue in their quest and in a few days a determinaion will be made as to how we proceed,” Robinson said.
He was speaking at the Antigua & Barbuda Fire Departmnent’s annual Dinner and Awards ceremony, held Saturday evening at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground.
James, a resident of New Winthorpes, was last seen leaving her workplace, Dixie Betting Company located on the second floor of an Old Parham Road building, at around 1:10 pm on April 7.

She was reportedly last seen wearing a pair of long blue jeans and an orange top.
The cash reward for anyone with information that leads to finding her has recently increased to $16,500, after the Government of Antigua & Barbuda pledged $10,000.
Robinson also stressed that, in a case of this nature, a murder charge could be laid whether or not a body has been found.
He is hopeful that the threat of a looming charge could persuade someone to come forward with information that could lead to James’s whereabouts.
