Couple comes forward in case of missing taxi man

GEORGE HENRY, STAR Writer

A couple being sought for questioning in connection with the disappearance of a taxi operator from Tweedside, Clarendon, recently, has turned themselves in to the Spaldings police.

Police have declined to release the couple's names, but say the man is from St Catherine and frequents Spanish Town, Portmore and May Pen. He was also wanted for questioning in connection with other crimes in May Pen.

The two are being probed for the mysterious disappearance of Fernando Mathews, 44, who plies the Frankfield to Spaldings route. They were taken into custody about 7 a.m. last Tuesday.

The police reported that when word went around that the two were in custody, an angry mob, carrying all sorts of items with the intention of administering their own justice, converged at the Spaldings Police Station calling for them to be released in their custody. However, the crowd dispersed when they were removed to another police station.

Police said Mathews has been reported missing since Thursday, January 3. His 1995 champagne-brown Toyota Corolla taxi was found unoccupied along the Grantham main road in Clarendon on that morning.
