Jataya may be on Mid North Coast
THE mother of missing three-year-old girl Jataya Bolt has spoken out about the heartache and concern of not having seen her daughter for nine months.
In a desperate attempt to find Jataya, who was allegedly taken by her father, the woman has issued a public plea for information on their whereabouts.
“Jataya turned three years old in May this year and every day I worry about where she is living and whether she is safe and well,” her mother said.
“I miss Jataya terribly and want her brought home to me.”
Jataya is thought to be with her father, Garry Timothy Campbell (aka Garry Holten), living in Bellingen, Bowraville, Kempsey or in the Armidale area.
“I have made many attempts to locate Garry Campbell and Jataya both personally and through the Federal Magistrates Court of Australia but all attempts have failed.
“Garry Campbell and his family are well aware that I am looking for Jataya and want her returned to my care but (he) has not contacted me once to inform me that Jataya is safe and well.
“I have been the primary carer for Jataya since she was born on May 7, 2007.
“Jataya is now three and a half years old and I have not seen (her) for nine and a half months now.
“In early February this year, Jataya's father, Garry Campbell, removed (her) from my care without my knowledge or consent. I have not seen Jataya since,” she said.
To help locate Jataya, the Federal Magistrates Court of Australia issued an order authorising all members of the Australian Federal Police, State and territory police and the Marshall of the Federal Magistrates Court of Australia to recover the child.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Jataya or Mr Campbell (aka Holten) are asked to contact Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
