Allan Mann Jr (Abductor)
Mann is a Black male, 5'9; 146 lbs. with black hair; brown eyes. His date of birth is September 24, 1952. The abductor's right ear is pierced. He has scars on his leg; hand; and the back of his neck. He was born in Ghana. He is a Canadian citizen and is a certified draftsman.
Jermaine was abducted by his noncustodial father, Allan Mann Jr., from Toronto, Ontario on June 24, 1987. A Canadian warrant for his father's arrest was issued the same day of the abduction.
In 1982, Jamaican-born Lyneth and Ghana-born Allan were married. Three years later, on September 6, 1985, their son Jermaine Allan Mann was born. Soon after his birth their relationship began to deteriorate. Lyneth and Allan were separated in 1986. A custody battle ensued over Jermaine and Lyneth was eventually granted sole custody, with Allan being allowed weekend visitation rights. The couple divorced shortly after the custody battle began.
The following year Lyneth wanted to visit family in Jamaica for a holiday and was granted permission from the courts to take Jermaine with her. This decision meant that Allan got an extra weekend visitation with Jermaine prior to Lyneth's departure. Lyneth dropped Jermaine off at a court-approved third party location where Jermaine was picked up by his father. It is thought that Allan Mann seized this opportunity to abduct Jermaine. Lyneth has never seen him or her son again.
Immediately following the 1987 abduction, the Toronto Police Department began an extensive investigation. Allan had implied that he might return to Ghana but the investigation revealed that this was unlikely. Jermaine was not located and all known leads were exhausted. The trail went cold.
It is thought that Allan and Jermaine are in North America, possibly in the New York area.
Thoughts? If Jermaine And Allan are in New York City then this shouldn't be too difficult of a case to solve. Since the investigation is out of Canada, I wonder how much law enforcement in Toronto worked with New York City detectives to try to locate the two there. Hopefully they did not flee to Ghana where I am fairly certain extradition would not be possible.
Based on case location, our advice for anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of either Jermaine Allan Mann or Allan Mann Jr. would be to contact Toronto Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
