The trial of the four persons, who are charged with kidnapping a St. Ann businessman, failed to get underway yesterday because the two men were absent.
The case has been set for mention on June 29, to give the police time to ascertain whether Aldene Jackson who was on bail is in custody.
The other man, Andrew Dillon, absconded bail in March and a bench warrant was issued for his arrest.
He is still at large.
The other accused persons, Trevorlyn Rowe and Nickesha Whyte, who are on bail, turned up in the Home Circuit Court and were ordered to return on June 29.
It is being alleged that on January 13, last year, a woman approached the complainant, who operates a locksmith business in St. Ann, and asked him to open the door of a motorcar.
While he was walking towards the motorcar, a man brandished a gun and ordered him into the vehicle.
The four allegedly blindfolded the man and took him to a location, where he was kept for several days.
A demand was made for a ransom of $5 million.
The police set up a sting operation in which one of the alleged kidnappers was held.
Further investigations led to the arrest of the others.
