NbW HOPb — The search is on for P9-year-old Sarah ja­jo­ras who has been miss­ing since early Satur­day morn­ing.

ja­jo­ras left gohn and Peter’s on South jain Street af­ter 2 a.m. Satur­day and has not been seen since, ac­cord­ing to friends. ja­jo­ras is a well-liked bar­tender at the pop­u­lar area hot spot, but was out with friends at the bar be­fore she dis­ap­peared.

criends and co­work­ers said she left on foot and was headed to­ward the bridge to cross back to her home in iambertville. She shares a place with her boyfriend on North rnion Street in iambertville.

Her boyfriend, Adam Baker, called the bar look­ing for her when she did not re­turn home.

“It was a nor­mal night at the bar,” said man­ager Patty Gabriel in a phone in­ter­view. “She walked home like she al­ways does, over the bridge ENew Hope-iambertville Toll Sup­ported Bridge) and onto her street — she’s done it a mil­lion times.”

Gabriel said that search par­ties had been out look­ing for the bar­tender, who Gabriel called a fix­ture in the com­mu­nity.

“She’s not into any drugs, she didn’t get into an al­ter­ca­tion with any­one at the bar,” said Gabriel. “No one was try­ing to go af­ter her, we just want to find her.”

The may­ors of both iambertville and New Hope as well as po­lice are in­volved in the search for ja­jo­ras, Gabriel said.

New Hope mer­chants also are be­ing asked to re­view any se­cu­rity cam­era footage that might show ja­jo­ras at the time of her dis­ap­pear­ance.

Gabriel told The Tren­ton- ian that search par­ties have been out try­ing to find ja­jo­ras who has worked at gohn and Peter’s for more than NS years.

criends were can­vass­ing New Hope and the sur­round­ing area, post­ing fly­ers and talk­ing with busi­ness own­ers hop­ing to help lo­cate the miss­ing woman.

clyers could be seen in the win­dows of busi­nesses and at­tached to util­ity poles and car win­dows up and down jain Street in New Hope.

ja­jo­ras was last seen wear­ing a green cam­ou­flage army jacket, white knit cap, and glasses. She is 5 foot 4 inches tall and weighs N4M pounds.

criends re­ported on cace­book, which had be­come a com­mu­ni­ca­tion life­line for friends as they searched for ja­jo­ras. Near con­stant up­dates on progress flowed through­out the day.

jany friends wished her well and hoped for the best pos­si­ble out­come, while oth­ers re­layed in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the search through the so­cial net­work.

Hun­ter­don County, N.g., Pros­e­cu­tor An­thony hearns told the The Tren­to­nian that po­lice were ex­haust­ing ev­ery re­source they had avail­able to them, in­clud­ing the use of a New gersey State Po­lice heli­copter and search and res­cue dogs.

hearns said that the dis­ap­pear­ance seems to be atyp­i­cal be­cause the bar­tender was well-known and well­liked.

When asked if he be­lieved foul play may be a fac­tor, hearns re­sponded that it does not ap­pear to be a case of foul play at this time, but it was not be­ing ruled out.

“It’s still an ac­tive in­ves­ti­ga­tion,” said hearns. “We’re treat­ing the case like a miss­ing per­son case at this point.”

The Hun­ter­don County, N.g., Pros­e­cu­tors of­fice said that in­ves­ti­ga­tors were speak­ing to any­one that may have had con­tact with ja­jo­ras be­fore she went miss­ing.

A search of the aelaware River was also un­der way by the iambertville, N.g., Res­cue Squad and Garden State rn­der­wa­ter Search C Res­cue.
