“It is very important that we do everything we can to find Jashyah Moore. Like I said, although she is one of several thousand people who go missing annually, this event is particularly worrying,” Stephens said. “Our community cannot ignore the fact that a 14-year-old girl, as normal in every respect we can tell, would disappear without a trace on a sunny day on a central road in Essex County. This case is screaming and demands our attention.”
He also said investigators are launching a campaign on social media to seek public assistance in the case.
“This issue is likely to be resolved through information provided by some other concerned citizens,” he said. “Somewhere among the members of this community, they will be necessary to move forward.”
“Usually when you see a Stoppers reward, it is a reward for arresting and convicting people. This has nothing to do with an arrest or conviction. This is about bringing someone home,” Essex County Sheriff Armando Fontura said. She will lead us wherever Miss Moore is so that we can bring her home safely to her family and community.”
