The Disappearance of Jasmine Earl

source: NamUs

Jasmine Earl has been missing since June 14th, 2005. The then-18-year-old was last seen in DeKalb County, Georgia. Jasmine was driving a blue 1989 Chevrolet Astro van at the time of her disappearance. She has never been seen or heard from again. 

Several months later, in February 2006, the van that Jasmine was driving was found abandoned in 4600 block of Dawson Road. No further sign of Jasmine was found on the scene. According to family members, the van did not provide any additional clues about Jasmine's disappearance.

There has been very little news reporting about Jasmine's case. However, in late 2005, a thread about her disappearance was created on Websleuths. A cousin of Jasmine's posted to the thread and provided additional details that have not been provided by police or the media. 

The cousin wrote, in part, "What we know so far is that she was last seen at the Washington Mutual bank on Chamblee-Tucker Rd."  According to the cousin, Jasmine's family was told that the bank does not have cameras outside their location. Her whereabouts and actions after leaving the bank remain unknown. 

Jasmine's cousin also posted that it is unusual for Jasmine to be out of touch with her loved ones. Police initially thought that she left on her own accord; however, there does not appear to be any evidence to suggest that she planned to leave and stay out of contact with her family. 

The Websleuths thread has been inactive since 2006/2007. The information provided by the cousin has not been confirmed by authorities, who have overall remained quiet about the investigation into Jasmine's disappearance. As such, there are many unanswered questions. 

The discovery of Jasmine's van is a source of some of those unanswered questions. The vehicle was found in a location approximately five to six miles away from Chamblee-Tucker Road. How did it end up in that area? How long had the van been there? Did Jasmine herself park it in the spot where it was found? At this time, all of this information still remains unknown. 

Jasmine remains missing today. The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department is in charge of her case. If you have any information that could lead to her whereabouts, please contact authorities at 404-297-2574.
