Teenage runaway Jashyah Moore was found safe in New York City after she was last seen at a deli in East Orange, NJ a month ago.
No Amber Alert was issued for the wayward 14-year-old after she was reported as a possible runaway on October 14.
Acting Essex County Prosecutor Theodore N. Stephens confirmed Jashyah was found safe on Thursday.
“Jashyah is currently safe and is being provided all appropriate services. She will be returned to NJ shortly. No additional information is available at this time,” said Stephens in a press release.
During a press conference, law enforcement officials said Jashyah was initially reported as a runaway. Jashyah’s family denied she was a runaway and expressed concerns that her life was in danger.
According to a family member’s post on Facebook, Jashyah has run away from home before. She is active on social media and may have been lured away from home by a social media user.
A $20,000 reward was offered for her safe return.
Jamie Moore believed her daughter was abducted and she insists her daughter would not run away from home. “She didn’t go. She ain’t missing. Somebody got my daughter,” she said last month. “Please come home Shyah. We miss you.”
