Search for Sarah Majoras Ends Tragically [VIDEO/AUDIO]

The search for 39-year-old Lambertville resident Sarah Majoras has been called off, after authorities found a body shortly before 5 p.m. in a Lambertville canal matching the description of Majoras’ late Wednesday afternoon.

The body was discovered by state police divers not far from where Sarah Majoras went missing after she left a bar in New Hope, Pennsylvania last weekend.

During a press conference Wednesday, Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony Kearns said, “We did recover an individual from the D and R canal.  And while we have not positively identified the individual, the description matches Miss Majoras.  We have made notification to the family.  Our hearts go out to them, our hearts go out to Lambertville, our hearts go out to the people of New Hope.”

Kearns said there was no evidence of foul play in the death of Sarah Majoras, but the circumstances surrounding her death remain under investigation. He says they will work with the The Hunterdon County Medical Examiner’s office to determine a cause of death.

“There does not appear to be any indication of foul play.  Our mind is not closed to the possibility that there was foul play. We will continue to work with our detectives trying to  figure out what did occur,” said Kearns.

Kearns encouraged anyone to come forward that may have heard or seen something suspicious or significant between Friday night and Saturday morning.

“We’re asking the people of Lambertville and New Hope – if they saw anything, heard anything, know anything – to please come forward.”

 Community Came Together

Kearns said this is a tragic situation but he appreciated the way the community worked together to find Majoras.  “We certainly are encouraged by the spirit of these two towns and the communities as they came together.”

Majoras was last seen around 2 a.m. Saturday, when she left a New Hope bar where she worked as a bartender and crossed over the bridge into Lambertville.
