ON July 29th, we published a press release regarding a seventeen-year-old boy missing from Harlow.
The release sent by Essex Police was as follows:
“Essex Police are appealing for the public’s help to find Asad Jabar who is missing from Harlow.
The 17-year-old was last seen on Tuesday 27 July at around 9pm and has not been seen since and the police are concerned for his welfare.
Asad is described as a black male with black braided hair, brown eyes and clean shaven. Asad speaks only Arabic.
He has previously visited Harrow, London, and may be in the vicinity.
We would ask Asad to make contact to reassure us that he is okay.
“Anyone who knows where Asad is, or is with him now, is asked to contact us on 101 quoting incident 386 of 29 July”.
We repeated the story on August 29th as well as September 29th.
With three months now elapsed, we asked Essex Police if there was any update. They told us they would contact the investigating officer. We haven’t heard back since.
It does beg a few questions, questions we have submitted to Essex Police. When we get an answer, we may know more about the teenager missing from Harlow for over three months. Or not….
We asked Essex Police:
If he is still missing:
Do you have any further details?
How long had he been residing in Harlow?
How long had he been residing in UK?
Was he claiming asylum?
Does he have any family in UK?
Essex Police told us they had no answers to any of these questions.
