Woman disappears after going to job interview - Found out that hotel was fake
The family of missing St Mary woman, Tiffany Murray, is offering a cash reward for her safe return.
The 27-year-old, who hails from Palmetto Grove, was last seen last Saturday, as she left home to seek a job in St James.
According to her sister Alicia Murray, Tiffany had got information and received a telephone call about a possible job opening at a place named Moonlight Hotel in Montego Bay.
However, Murray said that her sister may have been tricked, as no hotel that matches that name appears to exist in the parish.
"She left home with the intention to do an interview at a hotel in Montego Bay, but she called me later that afternoon after she reach St James to say that she did not get through because the hotel didn't exist so there was no interview or job opening lined up. Apparently she is not the only one who got the call because I spoke to another woman who said she was called but she did not pay it any mind because she already had a job," she said.
Alicia believes that Tiffany is possibly being held hostage, and is pleading with those responsible for her disappearance to release her so she can reunite with her family.
She stated that it is unlike her sister to go missing or even turn off her cellular phone.
"Tiffany would not just leave her family. She is a devoted Christian and from she call and say she gonna come home and once we don't see her, we know that something was wrong. She is not the type to turn off her phone. She is an innocent girl and her heart is pure," she said. "I think she is being held captive somewhere ... I really don't have the feeling that she is dead because we cannot deal with that. If it's money those who have her want, we are willing to pay it. We just want her back. I don't know why anyone would want to capture or even harm her because she don't even know how to speak hard to anyone."
According to Alicia, the entire family is distraught and remains adamant that they will leave no stone unturned until they receive closure.
"We just want to find her but we are begging persons not to try to scam us as we search for our loved one. I am hoping we don't receive any calls from unscrupulous persons claiming to know where she is because they hear that we are willing to offer cash for her return. Please just have a heart as we are already going through difficult times. Every time the phone rings, my heart skips a beat as I don't know what type of news I will hear," she said.
Anyone who may have seen or known the whereabouts of Tiffany Murray is being asked to contact the Coral Gardens Police Station in Montego Bay at 876-953-3665 or 119. Anyone with information may also contact her sister at 876-414-3887.
