Staff report

ARCHER, Fla. – Dateline NBC has debuted the second season of its chart-topping podcast, Dateline: Missing in America, featuring original reporting from correspondents Josh Mankiewicz, Andrea Canning, and Keith Morrison. The series examines six mysterious disappearances, asking viewers, “Are you the key to solving a mystery?”

Each episode focuses on one person’s story, as told by those left behind, in hopes that the story might jog a memory and lead a listener to bring forward information that could help authorities crack a case.

Episode 3 of this season features the story of Jasmine Robinson, who was last seen in the Archer home she shared with her grandmother on February 18, 2019. The 23-year-old was approximately six months pregnant when she went missing. Police believe she disappeared at approximately 7 p.m. Earlier that day, she had a heated phone call at work with the man she believed to be her baby’s father.

Dateline’s Josh Mankiewicz talks with her sister, Shantavia Robinson, her grandmother, Rosa Robinson, and Alachua County Sheriff’s Office Det. Chris Weitzel. Jasmine is 5’2” and 150 lbs. She wears black-framed glasses and has brown eyes and black, braided hair.
