(HorizonPost.com) – On October 14, Jashyah Moore, age 14, left her home in New Jersey to search for a lost debit card and never returned home. She had gone to look for the family’s card she had apparently misplaced when picking up groceries. A reward was offered and investigators increased it to $15,000 on November 9, hoping to get information regarding her whereabouts. The larger incentive was put in place thanks to a local business owner who donated in hopes of bringing in more leads.
A $15,000 reward has been issued to find 14-year-old Jashyah Moore of New Jersey.
Moore has been missing for more than 3 weeks and her family is pleading for her safe return.

Footage shows the freshman around 10 a.m. in East Orange, New Jersey, at Poppie’s Deli Store wearing khaki pants, a black jacket, and black boots. She’s 5’5″ tall and weighs about 135 pounds. Jashyah was on her way back to the store to find the card when she vanished.
The day investigators upped the reward, the community gathered with the family to search the streets near the area where she was last seen. They also plan to hold a prayer vigil in front of City Hall on November 12.
The FBI joined the investigation, questioning the mother on November 8 while gathering DNA samples and executing a search warrant on her home. The next day, they had the mother submit to a polygraph test.
Anyone with tips or information regarding young Jashyah should immediately contact the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office or the East Orange Police Department.
