JTA President insists that no resources should be spared to locate missing St Ann Teacher

President of the Jamaica Teachers Association, JTA, Mr. Winston Smith is insisting that no resources should  be spared to find missing St. Ann-based teacher Ms. Ruchelle Williams.

Mr. Smith has joined a large search party  drawn from the membership of the JTA, the police and staff of the Marcus Garvey Technical High school where Ms. Williams  who is a teacher of mathematics works.

Said Smith, “We are committed to searching for her extensively and will follow every possible lead, and we are doing everything humanly possible to not only locate the teacher but the missing student as well. The JTA is anxious  to locate our colleague as we join with the staff of Marcus Garvey who are disturbed by what is happening”.

 “We are desperately hoping to find Ruchelle alive and in good health.” Mr Smith said that the disappearance of Ruchelle has caused great distress and anxiety among members who are already stressed and experiencing uneasiness with very limited resources in managing teaching and learning in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ruchelle Williams who lives in Goshen, St Ann has been missing since Wednesday,September 15, 2021. She was last seen  in Brown’s Town wearing an orange blouse and cream pants.
