There is a major development in the case of MP Phillip Paulwell's missing daughter and her mother.
A person whom the police believe can help in their investigations was removed from an aircraft at one of the island's two international airports as that person attempted to leave the island this afternoon.
Radio Jamaica News sources indicate that the individual was questioned about last Saturday's disappearance of 10-month-old Sarayah Paulwell and her mother -- 27-year-old Toshyna Patterson.
Sources say the police are making good progress in their investigation of the missing mother and child.
Meanwhile, Member of Parliament for Kingston East and Port Royal Phillip Paulwell earlier issued a statement on the disappearance of his daughter and the child's mother.
The woman and child have been missing since last Saturday when they left their Gilmore drive home in Kingston 20.
In a statement on social media, the MP described the last week as horrific.
He said he has dealt with many things in his life but the disappearance of his child and her mother is “by far the most difficult thing I have ever had to navigate”.
He said he has spent most of his time in dialogue with the police and persons he believes could assist in locating them, but at this point, nothing has brought them closer to finding the two.
Mr. Paulwell said he is not concerned with the various theories circulating on social media and is pleading with anyone who knows of their whereabouts to contact the authorities, family members or him.
