    NJ - Sarah Townsend, 18, Burlington, 9 May 2011

    http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/...554.html?rr=td

    Townsend has not been seen since she left for school Monday morning, police say.
    "We have a car parked here with a cell phone, a purse," Police Lt. Bruce Painter told NBC Philadelphia. "Her parents haven't heard from their daughter. A boyfriend calls in that he finds the car here and that's when we get the missing person's report."
    Townsend's boyfriend told police that he and Townsend would visit Green Acres Field often.

    Sarah Townsend was supposed to arrive at school by 8:30 am. By 10 am, her BF had found her car and called police.

    NJ - Sarah Townsend, 18, Burlington, 9 May 2011

    Sarah Townsend, 18, was reported missing at 10:00 a.m. Monday by her boyfriend, who spotted her car near Sherman's Pond in Green Acres Park in Burlington Township.

    Police have been searching for the Allentown (NJ) High School senior from Florence Township with no luck. Chopper 6 HD was over the scene on Tuesday and rescuers could be seen continuing the effort.

    "We have a car that's parked here with a cell phone, a purse, and parents who haven't heard from their daughter," said Lt. Brian Pointer of the Burlington Township Police Department on Monday.

    Townsend, who is about 5'4 and weighs about 105 pounds, was last seen by her parents when she left for school at 7:00 a.m. Monday.

    Anyone with information about Sarah Townsend is asked to contact Burlington Township Police at 609-386-2019.

    A major search with police officers, firefighters, K-9 units, a dive team, and trained volunteers was underway most of the day until dark Monday looking for a missing 18-year-old Allentown, NJ High School senior, Sarah Townsend, whose car was found at Green Acres Park near Sherman’s Pond in Burlington Township.

    Green Acres is a large park off Old York Road. Police said Sarah was last seen by her parents at about 7 a.m. Monday morning as she was leaving for school in Monmouth County and never arrived.

    Pointer said there is no sign of a struggle and officials say at this time there is no evidence of foul play.

    Sarah and her boyfriend “frequently went to the park,” but Pointer decline to provide further comment on her disappearance.

    A friend, wishing not to be identified, told phillyburbs.com that she attended Allentown High School in Monmouth County and was interested in dance.

    So, she leaves home at 7:00 a.m. to go to school. By 10:00 a.m., her boyfriend finds her car in the park and reports her missing. Huh. Did he go to school too? Did they talk that morning? How in the world did he just happen to find her car at a park while she was supposed to be in school?

    Uh huh. I have the same questions. I wonder if she didn't show up for school, he was worried and went searching for her and went to the place they frequent? If this is true, did he call her parents to see where she was? Why did he report her missing and not her parents?

    This quote to me is interesting:

    (bbm)

    When police called off the search on Monday night, Sarah's parents, Roy and Lori Townsend, wanted this message to go out to their daughter:

    "Sarah, we love you. Everything's OK. Please come home."
    http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/story?se...cal&id=8122396

    The "everything's ok" comment stands out to me. Was there an argument before school or did something happen?

    The parents' message stands out to me, too. She's 18 so I'm guessing there are arguments with her parents from time to time. I wonder if they had an especially big argument that morning or something.

    Maybe the parents disapprove of the boyfriend so he didn't call them first. I don't know. This story isn't making a whole lot of sense to me right now.

    Looking at the situation in context, she's a senior about to graduate high school. Normally, these are happy times for girls - looking forward to prom, graduation, perhaps a senior trip with her class, etc.; however, I suppose that this time could be stressful as well worrying about college, losing her boyfriend if she goes to an away college, not having a date for prom and so on. I could see how fights between her and her parents or boyfriend could occur at this time. I do get the underlying vibe that a fight did occur between her and someone the night before or that morning. That might have prompted her boyfriend to go look for her at somewhere he knows she goes to calm down or "chill."

    I suppose it is possible that the boyfriend knew of some kind of heated disagreement in the home and feared that Sarah might be in more danger if he called there.

    When I was that age I had a very serious boyfriend and we told each other everything. If cell phones had been common back then, we would have been in constant contact.

    I'm thinking she may have gone to the field to meet her boyfriend, but something happened before he got there or they fought and she was the loser. Just spec, no inside info here! MOO

    her boyfriend is 20, unclear if he works or is in college, but it seems unlikely that they attended the same school. tho possible.

    If there was something going on at home, it could make those close to her feel very bad, and she might have been distracted and victimized, or she might have threatened her own life. We just don't know enough, but I hope people keep talking. This doesn't sound to me like one that's going to have a happy ending. jmo

    Well I guess we take comments with a grain of salt. But there may be something to the first one. That would make sense why there is an all out search for her right when her car was found.

    More than 100 rescue personal, including search dogs, scoured the area about a mile or two away from Route 130 in hopes of finding Townsend.
    Police tell Eyewitness News, Sarah and her boyfriend at times would come to this park together.

    Participating in the search are over 100 searchers from multiple agencies including police officers and firefighters from Burlington City, Florence, the New Jersey State Police, and several of the county’s civilian emergency response teams made up of trained volunteers.

    State Police Sgt. Stephen Jones said the search has involved helicopters, marine units, and K-9 teams. A dive team from Burks County, PA was to start searching the pond Monday afternoon.
