Search dogs from the Police Canine Division have been brought in to help in the search for 32-year-old cashier, Tasha Gordon, who was abducted from her workplace in Hanover, on Monday.

Head of the Hanover Police, Deputy Superintendent Artel Colley, says the dogs along with about 17 police personnel are engaged in the search, which has now been extended.

DSP Colley says the police are also being assisted by concerned residents.

He says the search, which began on Monday, has yielded no leads so far.

Meanwhile, DSP Colley says the police have not yet established a motive for the execution-style killing of 36-year-old Marvin McIntosh.

The police reported that McIntosh and Gordon were at work at a wholesale in Prospect district about 7 o’clock on Monday night when two men armed with guns entered the establishment.

The gunmen reportedly ordered McIntosh to lie face down on the floor, tied him up and shot him once in the back of the head.

They then reportedly accosted Gordon and took her into nearby bushes.
