Father: Daughter's Body Found in West New York
HARRINGTON PARK, N.J. -- The father of Jennifer Moore, Hugh Moore, confirmed Thursday morning that his daughter's body was found in West New York.
1010 WINS reporter Steve Sandberg said officials report her body was discovered in a dumpster behind the Park Avenue Towers in West New York.
Sources tell 1010 WINS that an investigation has started at a hotel, a few blocks away from the crime scene.
Police in New York and New Jersey were looking for an 18-year-old girl, who disappeared after a night in Manhattan.
The NYPD said Jennifer was last seen on the West Side Highway early Tuesday morning. Police say she had been at the Chelsea nighspot, Guest House, with a friend and came out to find her car had been towed.
They went to the tow pound on the West Side and Moore's friend apparently got sick and had to be taken by ambulance to Saint Vincent's Hospital.
That left the 18-year-old young woman alone at 4 a.m. Witnesses told police she was last seen walking along the West Side Highway wearing a white miini-skirt and black halter top.
The New York Post says she called her boyfriend at about 5 a.m. Tuesday morning to say she was lost. He told her to call a taxi. But when the boyfriend tried to call her back a short time later, there was no answer.
The NYPD says it used boats and a helicopter to search along the Hudson River shoreline
