Cumberland County authorities are putting to rest rumors that the body of a 5-year-old girl who went missing over a year ago has been found.
Officials say that a fake announcement circulating social media states that the body of Dulce Maria Alvaez has been found. But the officials say that this is not true.
Alavez went missing in 2019 from the Bridgeton City Park while playing with her younger brother.
“Posting false information under the false impression that it is comes from a law enforcement agency to cause alarm or harm to a grieving family is reprehensible,” Cumberland County Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae stated in a Facebook post.
Webb-McRae is asking anyone who may have information about the false post or the girl’s disappearance to contact her office.
