NEWARK -

A digital billboard asking for clues about a Paterson woman’s disappearance has gone live in Newark.

The billboard is posted along McCarter Highway in Newark and is asking for information about the disappearance of Shanaya Coley.

Police believe that Coley was abducted while on her way to work on Dec. 5.

Coley is a mother to a young boy. Coley’s mother pleaded for her return.

“A son needs his mother. He’s a baby and he wants his mother,” says Rachel Martin. “I want my child. That’s my only child. She has been my life. She still is my life. I fight to raise her and I’m still raising my child.”

A $6,000 reward is being offered for information into Coley’s disappearance.
