Ride-hailing platform inDrive has denied suggestions that schoolteacher Danielle Anglin used its platform the day she disappeared.

In a release on Tuesday, inDrive said, following a number of “false accusations” in recent days, it deemed it important to address the events with facts rather than “pure speculation”.

Anglin, a St Peter Claver Primary and Infant School teacher who resided in Hellshire, St Catherine, disappeared on May 13 after she reportedly chartered a ride-hailing service.

The police discovered remains in Salt River, Clarendon, last Monday that they believe to be those of the missing teacher. A day later, the Government announced a 12-month ban on all ridesharing and ride-hailing apps in the interest of safety and security.

“As a fair ride-hailing and urban services platform, we have an unwavering commitment with the safety and security of our community, and firmly reject and oppose any and all acts of violence,” inDrive said on Tuesday.

While extending its deepest condolences to Anglin’s family and friends, the inDrive team said they are already in touch with them to provide any necessary assistance.

With the view of providing complete transparency, inDrive sought to state the facts on the record in its release on Tuesday.

According to the ride-hailing platform, as soon as they became aware of the case, its support team initiated the internal protocol of immediate response and provided an official response to the authorities request within 24 hours.

In reference to Anglin, the ride-hailing platform said she last used inDrive on May 11, 2024, two days before her disappearance. 

They also said that the relevant authorities have provided inDrive with the name of the main suspect currently being investigated in the schoolteacher’s disappearance.

“We can confirm that we have no user registered on the platform coinciding with the name, phone number or email account associated with the main suspect, which authorities shared with us,” inDrive said.

It added that inDrive is currently collaborating with the authorities to investigate the matter, and at this time can confirm the incident did not occur on its platform.

“We will continue to closely cooperate with the authorities to ensure that justice is served in this case and any potential future,” inDrive said on Tuesday.
