A reward for information about a missing East Orange teenager has been increased to $15,000.
There is still no sign of Jashyah Moore who has been missing for almost a month. She was last seen on Oct. 14 leaving Poppie's Deli on Central Avenue not far from where she lives. Surveillance footage shows Moore entering the deli with an older man, who paid for her items. The video does not appear to show them leaving together.
Authorities say that they have identified this man and that he is cooperating with the investigation.
Moore’s mother says that the 14-year-old is a homebody who loves to play video games. Authorities are searching in places like Monte Irvin Orange Park because Moore likes to check out the pond.
It is not clear how the teen went missing. She was reportedly asked to testify in a domestic violence case against her stepfather, who is an East Orange police officer.
A spokesperson for the city tells News 12 New Jersey that the officer was fired last month and was suspended before that. The stepfather hasn’t seen active duty in more than a year.
The city says that he has been cooperating in the investigation into Moore’s disappearance.
News 12 tried to speak to the East Orange police chief and the city’s mayor, but they were not available.
Anyone who may have information about the teen’s location should contact the East Orange Police Department Tip Line at 973-266-5041.
