PERTH AMBOY - Authorities are searching for a woman who disappeared early Saturday morning in the Raritan River.

Anjanae Smith, 22, of Newark walked into the river at around 2 a.m. and hasn't been seen since, according to officials. She had been in a park near the Victory Bridge over the water when she became upset with the people she was with. Police say her party lost track of her.
