Surveillance Video Shows Missing Woman Crossing Bridge

Authorities have released images showing Sarah Majoras walking home before she disappeared early Saturday.

She's right there.

She's striding confidently across the street, her white cap shining in the lights reflected off the streets of Lambertville. Her brown boot-clad feet are outstretched, carrying her home, as they've done countless times before.

But Sarah Majoras never made it home that night, and as the search to find the missing New Hope bartender continued Tuesday, authorities released images of her, frozen in time on that walk home.

The stills were taken from video cameras on the New Hope-Lambertville bridge, which Majoras crossed early Saturday morning around 2 a.m. as she headed for home.

Authorities leading the investigation into her disappearance hope the newly released photos jog someone's memory and lead to more information in the case.

Security cameras on the New Hope-Lambertville Bridge recorded her crossing the Delaware River and turning north on Lambert Lane, Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns, III said Tuesday.

"A still photo of Ms. Majoras crossing the bridge is being released in hopes it may trigger someone’s memory if they saw her that night," Kearns said in an update on the investigation.

Detectives have been canvassing the neighborhood looking for witnesses or private surveillance cameras that may have caught something, said Kearns, whose office is heading the investigation with the assistance of the Lambertville Police.

Investigators also have reviewed cell phone records but they have not revealed any clues, Kearns said.

The investigation is pulling in official resources from far and wide.

New Jersey State Police divers, the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office Underwater Search and Rescue Team, the Garden State Underwater Recovery Unit, and the Lambertville Rescue Squad all have assisted in the water search, Kearns said.

State police divers entered the Delaware and Raritan canal near Coryell Street Monday afternoon after placing sonar equipment into the water from the bridge, he said.

Police found a pair of eyeglasses near the canal on Monday but said they did not belong to Majoras.

Meanwhile, hundreds of Majoras' friends, acquaintances and even strangers have been searching for her, too. Again Tuesday morning, volunteers gathered in Lambertville and split into teams to search on foot for their friend.

They will meet again at 10 a.m. on Wednesday at the command center set up at the Argo Arts Center.

Thousands of people from around the country also are voicing support through social media, checking the Find Sarah Majoras Facebook page for updates and sharing information on Twitter using the hastag #FindSarah.

Majoras is described as 5-feet-4 and weighing 140 pounds. She has blue eyes and blonde hair and was last seen wearing blue jeans, brown leather boots, a white cap and a camouflage jacket.

Majoras, a bartender at John and Peter's bar in New Hope, was last seen at 2 a.m. Saturday leaving John and Peter's after spending time there with friends on her night off.

She left on foot to walk back to North Union Street in Lambertville, where she lives with her boyfriend, a routine she had followed many times before.

Video captured her crossing the bridge and turning onto Lambert Lane, but Majoras never made it home. She did not show up for work Saturday night, which friends say is very unlike her.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Lambertville Police Department at 609-397-3132, which noted that all calls are kept confidential.
