Family Pleads for Help at Vigil for Missing South Jersey Girl

(Bridgeton, NJ-AP) – The family of a five-year old girl who went missing in a New Jersey park almost a week ago is pleading for the public’s help in finding her. An emotionally shaken cousin of Dulce Maria Alavez spoke out at a vigil Saturday night for the little girl.

More than 100 officers from state and local police searched Friday in Bridgeton, Cumberland County.

Authorities believe the girl was taken by a man who led her to a red van. A reward for information leading to an arrest has been increased to 35-thousand-dollars.
