CLAYTON - (AP) - New Jersey's attorney general says he'll review Gloucester County's response to the disappearance of the 12-year-old Clayton girl later found killed.
Great-uncle and family spokesman Paul Spadofora claims the county initially treated the case like an adult disappearance rather than launching a more intensive search required in juvenile cases. He said he would ask the attorney general to investigate.
The state said yesterday it hadn't received a formal complaint from the family of Autumn Pasquale. But the office of Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa says it has been talking with the Gloucester County prosecutor and will get full details on the response.
Prosecutors say about 50 law officers took part in the search the night she was reported missing. Two teenage brothers are charged with murder in her death.
Chiesa says he appreciates the family's need to know "everything possible was done for their daughter."
