    NY - Jasmine Joseph, 22, Syosset, 24 Feb 2014



    The Nassau County Missing Persons Squad has reported details involving a missing female which occurred on Monday, February 24, 2014.

    According to detectives, Jasmine V. Joseph a 22 year old female Asian Indian was last seen leaving her Syosset home in a 2012 gray Nissan Altima, to attend college classes at NYIT in Old Westbury.

    Joseph called her parents at 5:17 pm and stated she was studying at the college library and has not been seen or heard from since.

    Joseph is described as 54 tall, 120 lbs, brown eyes and black hair. She was last seen wearing white and black sneakers, black jeans and a green sweater.

    The school released the following statement.
    "The NYIT Old Westbury community has been in contact with and is cooperating with the family of a former student, whom the family has reported as missing. Many students and staff members are actively helping to spread the word and share photos, in the hopes that the public will recognize this young woman and contact her family or the authorities. The young woman has not been a student enrolled at NYIT since May 2013; as such, we are unable to provide any current information. Our thoughts are with her loved ones."

    I was glad to see her case broadcast on News 4 New York (NBC) tonight. Hopefully this will get a lot of eyes looking for her.

    On Find Jasmine FB page, the flyer (from kompassist.com) states that Jasmine spoke with her mom at 5:17PM and said she'd be home within the hour.

    Jasmine last spoke to her mother at 5:17pm while studying at the NYIT Library & stated she would be to visit her mom within an hour.
    Some of the other news articles (linked up thread) state Jasmine was last heard from at 2:45PM.

    Jasmine’s parents last heard from her Monday at 2:45 p.m. when she told them she was studying in the library, police reported.

    Very strange case. Most of the talk on the streets around here and among my friends that go to NYIT is that she likely had a boyfriend her parents dident approve of and she ran off. Syosset is a very affluent community with a large Indian/Arab population and sometimes traditions from the "old country" that the parents adhere too don't go over so well with the more Americanized kids.


    I wonder if she was using the "im at school studying in the library" line to cover up being with a boyfriend?

    I wonder if the NCPD has tried tracing her phone to see where the call was actually made from, if it was indeed made from the NYIT Old Westbury campus or elsewhere. Can this be done or is it too late?

    That is very true. IMO that is very possible. I would think her friends/brother would know if and who she was dating.
    It is not too late to trace her phone and I would bet LE is on it.
    My question is, still, about her car. They say she seen leaving her home in
    her Altima. Where is the Altima? if it has not been located, don't you think they should release the plate number?

    I hope she is safe.

    When I was looking into this case earlier this week, I did some digging. She didn't come up in namUS or ncmec, but I did find another record for her, apparently from 2011. Could she have run away then, too?

    All of the speculation around the Internet about running away because of arranged marriages or strict parenting may be coming from similar past cases or the fact that she has run away in the past. The only fact we have is that dad paid for college tuition in the fall, but left his CC with Jasmine (they went to India) to pay for Spring semester, but she never did. They showed this on the news (12) last night. Either way, I am sure that detectives are questioning the right people to find her.

    Since there is no picture associated with the links, it's impossible to tell if this runaway could be attributed to this Jasmine Joseph. When I was searching for her FB last night, I happened to have run across three different Jasmine Joseph's all with ties to Long Island, NY.

    The culture-clash theory is an interesting one. The family (brother AH and cousins) are doing a great job getting the word out and managing the FB pages. Does anyone know if they are blanketing the area with flyers? It's hard to know what area to focus on if it's not known if she was actually in the NYIT library. I hope LE has asked at the library or looked at any surveillance videos. Needle in a haystack made of needles!

    I hope Jasmine is safe and makes it back home soon.

    Very confusing. The linked video shows the dad's statement paying for tuition on 7/23/2013. If she has not been at NYIT since May 2013, why did they bill him in July? KWIM?

    The brother also admins another FB page with much more info. I think there is misinformation floating around. As for the car, according to her brother on his JJIM FB page, it has not been found.

    I thought the same thing. Even if she was not enrolled, she could have been at the library with friends etc. I hope they looked at the surveillance videos carefully.

    What is Kompassist? Ever hear of it?? Since I am not on the North shore, I don't know about flyers. I haven't seen any around here.

    I wish her parents would get on TV and beg and plead for her safe return. They haven't. That worries me that LE thinks this will backfire on having her return safe. I find it sad :-(

    I have seen them on other cases.

    The father did not want to be on camera. FWIW

    As I understand it, he paid (in July 2013) for the Fall 2013 semester. Because the father and mother were away in India during the Winter break, he gave her his credit card in December so that she could pay for the Spring 2014 semester. According to the family, Jasmine never charged the credit card with an enrollment fee from NYIT for the Spring 2014 semester.

    I wonder if the college now has a credit on her account because he paid and, according to the college, she didn't attend. I'm sure LE has already asked them. If Jasmine had an elaborate plan to hood-wink her parents about attending college, I would think that some of her friends would know about it. How elaborate was her plan? Or, is there some strange clerical error at the college?

    I saw on the FB page earlier that TC (from the awesome Missing FB page) was asking for clarification on her height and info about the car. I'll check to see if his questions were answered and relay the info here.

    Who are her friends? What can they add?

    Does she have a P/T job? How has she been spending her time since May 2013?

    Why didn't she attend the Fall semester? Why didn't she register for the Spring?

    Has the cell phone been tracked?

    Does the car have Onstar? Has the plate number been released?

    She should be able to be located.


    May your last hour be your best hour.
