Police are searching a property in South Grafton for a second day in relation to the 2009 disappearance of Jasmine Morris.

As part of this year’s Missing Persons Week, Grafton Police issued a renewed appeal for assistance from the public to locate 24-year-old Jasmine Morris, missing since 2009.

Yesterday (9 September), police began a search of a property on the Pacific Highway at South Grafton after receiving information during the recent Missing Persons Week campaign.

The search is focused on locating any evidence relating  Ms Morris’s disappearance.

Today’s search involves staff from the Forensic Services Group working with an earthmoving contractor to excavate certain parts of the property.

Jasmine Morris, also known as Jasmine Moore, was last seen outside the Bi-Lo supermarket in South Grafton about 3pm on October 6, 2009.

Ms Morris was reported missing to police on October 20, 2009 after she had not been seen by family or friends for a number of days.

Despite extensive investigation by Grafton detectives, Ms Morris has not yet been found.

It has been reported Ms Morris, who was 20 at the time, was seen around the Grafton and South Grafton area in the time following her disappearance.

Jasmine Morris is described as being of Caucasian appearance, with an olive complexion, about 155cm tall, weighing approximately 55kg, with shoulder-length black hair and brown eyes.

At the time of her disappearance, Ms Morris was wearing a long black cotton skirt, a purple top, and thongs, and also had a handbag with her.

Investigators are appealing for anyone with information about her whereabouts or the circumstances surrounding her disappearance to come forward.
