The Police High Command is dismissing reports that investigators have been sloppy in the case of the disappearance of funeral home operator and undertaker, Jennifer Hardy Edwards.

The 50-year-old woman, who is of Carr Hill district, Rock Hall, has been missing since January 7.

Her friends and family have accused the police of not doing enough to find the woman.

However, in a statement, the police high command said this is not true.

According to the high command, more than 20 searches have been conducted in an effort to find Edwards.

It further says the services of the York Park Fire Department were employed to search of a pit in downtown Kingston.

The high command says on all occasions the searches were unsuccessful.

It also says investigators have conducted several interviews with Edwards’ associates as well as persons in the Red Hills area in a bid to ascertain information relating to her whereabouts.

The High Command is appealing to anyone with information that can assist in the investigation to contact the police.
