The Disappearance of Jasmine Robinson

Jasmine Robinson has been missing since February 18th, 2019. 

That day reportedly began as a regular one for the 23-year-old woman. She video-chatted with her sister that morning, and then went to work as scheduled. Jasmine returned to her Archer, Florida home around 8:00 PM that evening and told her aunt she was going to bed. When Jasmine's aunt came by the following morning to take her to a doctor's appointment, Jasmine was not there. She has never been seen or heard from again.

Jasmine was between 6 and 7 months pregnant at the time of her disappearance. According to Jasmine's family members, Jasmine was upset with the father of her unborn child. The man is identified in reports as a 56-year-old Christopher Wiggins. Wiggins reportedly did not want Jasmine to have the baby; especially since he was married to another woman at the time. 

Wiggins has a criminal record. In June 2023, it was reported that he was behind bars for "robbing a Bojangles at gunpoint with two other co-defendants on February 13, 2019, just days before Jasmine disappeared." It's also been reported that, before her disappearance, Jasmine exposed her affair/pregnancy with Wiggins to his wife. As such, there were "heated messages" exchanged between the three of them just hours before Jasmine vanished. 

Jasmine also had an upcoming court date prior to her disappearance. She was charged with theft in September 2018 after she allegedly stole a cell phone and sent money to herself using a cash app on the phone. When Jasmine was first reported missing, there was speculation that she might have run away to avoid going to court. However, her family members do not believe this to be the case - as Jasmine had told them that she was planning to plead guilty, which would result in her being required to pay restitution and serve probation. 

Detectives have not stated whether or not they consider Wiggins - or anyone - to be a suspect at this time. They did state that they believe Jasmine was not alone when she left her home on the night of her disappearance. She did not have access to a vehicle, so it's more likely that she was picked up. Investigators are encouraging anyone with information about her disappearance to come forward.

There is a monetary reward in place for information that could lead to her whereabouts. If you have any information that could help the investigation, please contact the Alachua County Sheriff's Office at 352-367-4083.

  1. More than one year has passed and there are no news about her. I can not even imagine, what her parents feel. I hope, that everything will be good.
