16 year old Elizabeth “Liz” Chesner has been missing since Sunday, March 24, 2013 in Franklin County, New Jersey. According to police, Elizabeth Chesner was last heard from when she went out with her boyfriend on Sunday. Chesner never came home that night, and she did not show up in school the next day. However, at this point the police do not consider hi a suspect.
A flyer posted to a Facebook page seeking help finding Chesner describes her as white, 5 feet and 7 inches tall, weighing 110 pounds, with hazel eyes and brown hair. Chesner has a tattoo on the top of her right foot. Her mother, Sharon Decker, told the New Jersey Herald friends and family have tried calling Chesner’s phone and texting her, but messages have gone unanswered. Decker said it would be unlike Chesner to disappear without any explanation.
Chesner’s mother, Sharon Decker, said her daughter went out on Sunday about 3 p.m. with her boyfriend, who is 18 and from Bloomfield. Her boyfriend, whom she has been dating for more than a year, has said he dropped Chesner off in Hamburg about 4:30 p.m. Sunday to hang out with friends, according to Decker.
The girl has not been seen or heard from since, she said.
Decker said her daughter missed her 7:30 p.m. curfew on Sunday, but it was not until early Monday morning that she became concerned because her daughter still was not home. After checking at Wallkill Valley and finding that her daughter had not shown up for school, she went directly to the Franklin police and reported her daughter as missing, she said.
Decker at first was sure that her daughter was with her boyfriend, but “he said he left her at 4:30 p.m. Sunday. He said she wanted to be with friends and that was it.”
