On January 17, New Jersey State Police located Dematera’s vehicle at the Thomas Edison Service Area on the NJ Turnpike in Woodbridge, but were unable to locate the woman after a search.

In an email, Detective Sgt. Eileen Dodd of the Howell Township Police Department said:

There is no reason to believe she is in danger. A friend was concerned when she could not locate her. We simply want to make sure that she is OK.
