Police are asking the community for help locating a 13-year-old Toms River girl who may be in the company of a 19-year-old Jackson man.
The girl, Antonella Marino, left home Wednesday night, according to Toms River police spokesman Ralph Stocco. Her family has not been able to make contact with her since her departure, he said. Marino may be with a 19-year-old man, identified as Jeffrey Trautmann, from Jackson Township. Trautmann operates a 2003 Green Volkswagen Golf with New Jersey license plates, Stocco said.
Trautmann is not suspected of any criminal wrongdoing, Stocco said, but he may have information as to the whereabouts of Marino and police would like to speak to him.
Anyone with information about either party is being asked to immediately contact the Toms River Police Department at 732-349-0150 or email Detective Thomas Grosse at firstname.lastname@example.org All tips will remain confidential, Stocco said.
