UPDATE: Authorities say Gabriela Cruz has been found safe. Our original report follows.
Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill Mayer and Winslow Township Police Chief George Smith say 14-year-old Gabriela “Gabby” Cruz was reported missing last Saturday.
Cruz was last seen at her home on the unit block of Jackson Court in Winslow Township around 10:30 Friday night, June 11th. Cops say she may have left her home that night through her bedroom window.
Authorities say she was captured on surveillance video just before 9:00 Thursday night, June 17th, at the Wawa on the Black Horse Pike in Mays Landing. There, she was wearing a black baseball cap, a blue face covering, a dark v-neck t-shirt, white pants with multi-colored speckles, and black sneakers with white laces. According to police, she used a Wawa employee’s cell phone to contact a family member; in that conversation, she reportedly said she was OK and staying in the Bridgeton area. She was then seen on video getting into the front seat of a black four-door Cadillac SUV.
Cruz is a Hispanic female, 5 feet tall, and weighs approximately 130 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
