notified the US Embassy in Banjul that the two had gone missing in The Gambia.  Since then, the United States government has raised its concerns over their welfare to the Government of The Gambia and has sought the government’s assistance in locating both of them. The protection and safety of US citizens overseas remains of the highest importance to the State Department.
 “The United States government expresses again its urgent request that The Gambian government intensify its efforts to assist us in locating these two missing citizens.  Mr Ceesay and Mr Jobe were last seen in Tranquil, The Gambia in June 2013 and we have no credible information to suggest that they have left the country. 
 “We ask, therefore, that anyone with credible information on the whereabouts of Mr Ceesay and Mr Jobe please contact the American Citizens Services office at the US Embassy in Banjul by email at [email protected] or the Africa Division of the Office of Overseas Citizens Services of the Bureau of Consular Affairs at the US Department of State by calling 1-888-407-4747.”
Contacted for a comment on the matter, Police Public Relations Officer, David Kujabi, said: “I know nothing about the whereabouts of these two.”
