FREEHOLD – The search for a missing 25-year-old township woman, missing for nearly a week, has expanded to two states.
Stephanie Parze was last observed at 10 p.m. on Oct. 30 at her township residence according to Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office spokesman Charlie Webster. The search has extended to Staten Island N.Y. She vanished after a night out with her family in New Brunswick according to PIX11. Her mother Sharlene told the station that “It was like the perfect night. Everybody had such a great time.”
Stephanie has three sisters all of whom are worried and fearing the worst according to station’s segment. “She’s my baby and she’s my oldest daughter. We’re so close,” her mother said.
Her car, cell phone and dog, Jazmine were found at her home by her mother and by investigators and there was no evidence of any type of struggle. It is not like her to not return messages.
Her cell phone contained a text message from a family whose children she was scheduled to watch, wondering if she had forgotten the assignment.
Her father, Edward Parze, described his oldest daughter as being tough and independent according to an Asbury Park Press report. He also described her as caring and that she loved children.
