Barnegat Township police enlist your help in a widening search for a township woman who hasn't been seen since Saturday, but who has been contacted by authorities, and who so far is reluctant to disclose where she is.
Theresa Michaelson, 23, was last seen by her boyfriend at about 1:30 PM September 2, walking Old Cedar Bridge Road in the direction of Warren Grove Road. Police said that they have contacted her, but efforts to learn her whereabouts have been fruitless so far.
She's described as Caucasian, about 5'1" tall, 210 pounds, with red hair and hazel eyes. At last sighting, she was clad in a black hooded sweatshirt emblazoned with the legend "Seaside Heights," gray sweatpants, and black vans.
Theresa is now listed as a missing person in the National Crime Information Center. The search continues until a law enforcement agent can physically determine that she is healthy and unharmed.
