Prosecutor Makes Plea to Public for Information Regarding Disappearance of Sarah Majoras
Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns held a press conference in Lambertville just after 3:30 p.m. today begging anyone who has information about the disappearance of resident Sarah Majoras to come forward.
“Our plea to the public now is if anyone has any information regarding where Sarah Majoras may be or if anyone was in the area, we’re asking them to come forward and tell us if they saw anything, heard anything, if they know of anyone who may have given Sarah a ride, etc.,” Kearns said. “The public has been coming forward with some information and we’re gathering that information, making an assessment of that information, and using it as we go forward.”
All leads will be considered, Kearns said. Anyone who has seen or heard anything that may be of interest to law enforcement officials should contact the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office through Hunterdon County Communications at (908) 284-6162.
The prosecutor’s office continues to treat this as a missing person’s case and its an active investigation.
“While we have no substantial evidence of foul play, our minds remain open, we are looking at all possibilities, and we continue to pursue any information we can in an attempt to make sense of what might have happened.”
Assisting agencies helping with the search include:: the New Jersey State Police Marine Unit, New Jersey State Police Missing Persons Unit, Hunterdon County Sheriff’s Department, New Hope Police Department, Mayor DelVecchio, HCPO Major Crimes Unit, HCPO Narcotics Task Force, HCPO Special Victims Unit, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Solebury Township Police Department, Lambertville Fire and Rescue Squad, Garden State Underwater Recovery Unit, Hunterdon County Department of Public Safety, and Palisades Search & Rescue Dogs.
“We believe all the participants, to include the public, are going to make a difference in this case,” Kearns said.
The search for Majoras entered day four today. Divers from the New Jersey State Police Marine Division continued searching the canal while investigators continued an intensified targeted search on the ground, Kearns said.
Rumors are circulating that one of Majoras’ boots was found along the canal today, but this has not been confirmed. Yesterday rumor spread that her eyeglasses had been found, but they turned out not to be hers.
Majoras, a bartender at the New Hope club John and Peter’s, was last seen leaving the club on foot at about 2 a.m. Saturday. Video footage shows she crossed the free bridge into Lambertville around 2:30 a.m. and made a left onto Lambert Lane.
Majoras is 5’ 4” tall, weighs 140 pounds, has blue eyes and blonde hair. She was and was last seen wearing blue jeans, brown leather boots, white cap, and a camouflage jacket. Anyone with information should contact the Lambertville Police Department at (609) 397-3132.
