Jamaican authorities have requested that the public stop sharing social media posts about a JetBlue flight attendant who allegedly was kidnapped in Jamaica.

The Jamaica Constabulary Force issued a statement that said the woman, Kalina Collier “is not, nor was she at any time, in any danger.” When Collier arrived on the island from the U.S., she tested positive for COVID and was required to isolate by the Ministry of Health and Wellness.

Collier said she did previously share her experience on IG Live, though it’s unclear exactly what she said. “I understand that I went live and reached out for help, but my story is now beginning to be told for me and I won’t have that,” she wrote.

JetBlue spokesman Derek Dombrowski also issued a statement on Monday. “We have full confidence in Jamaica’s health protocols and it is important everyone follows the rules,” he said. “We hold each JetBlue crewmember to the highest standards when it comes to personal integrity and we are conducting an urgent investigation into the actions of our crewmember.”
