St. Maarten – P.W., the boyfriend of missing Jamaican Annmarie Lynch was out in immigration detention on Monday after the Judge of Instruction on Friday turned down a demand by the Public Prosecutor’s Office to prolong the man’s custody with eight days.

W. remains a suspect in the disappearance, Chief Prosecutor Mr. Hans Mos told this newspaper yesterday. “We have a clear suspicion against him but the Judge of Instruction ruled that there are insufficient serious objections to justify the prolongation of his custody.”

The suspect resided illegally on the island and there is a possibility that he will be deported to his native Jamaica.

Annmarie Lynch disappeared on December 22 of last year. Private search parties as well as searches led by the police have yielded no results so far. “Beaches, bays and even cemeteries have been searched,” Mos said.

The authorities are no longer conducting active searches. “Where possible we will do a search but this has to be based on concrete indications,” Mos said. “We are not going to wander around aimlessly.”
