East Orange NJ, the mother of a 14-year-old girl who went missing in New Jersey is pleading for her daughter’s safe return as police and family desperately search for her. Jashyah Moore, of East Orange, was last seen on October 14, when mom Jamie Moore sent her to get some juice and paper towels at Poppies Deli on Central Avenue, not far from their 3rd Ward home.

Jashyah initially returned home but said she lost her mother’s credit card somewhere along the way. Jamie Moore said it had happened before, and she suggested Jashyah go back and retrace her steps in an effort to find it. According to employees and surveillance footage from that date, Jashyah entered the store with an older man who paid for her items at the register. The footage does not appear to show the two leaving together, but police say they have identified that man and that he has been very helpful in the investigation.

Since then, the East Orange Police Department has been working with the FBI, the New Jersey State Police, the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office, and the Essex County Sheriff’s Office to follow all leads related to Jashyah’s whereabouts. Jamie Moore says that her daughter’s disappearance is completely out of character. The Essex County Sheriff Armando Fontoura’s Crime Stoppers Program also is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the location and safe return of Jashyah. Jashyah is 5-foot-5 and weighs about 135 pounds. She was last seen wearing khaki pants, a black jacket, and black boots.
