The “Bizarre” story about a girl who allegedly went missing from a bar in Jersey City, New Jersey, was first published on the Daily News, a local paper.
The “Hurry Up and Get Out of My Bar” article claims that the girl was wearing a bra when she went missing, and that she had “several black eyes, a shaved head and an ‘off-color’ appearance.”
The story was reported by the Daily Herald on Wednesday, and was posted on the site a short time later.
The article, which is not an official story, claims that a police report was filed on December 3, but was never completed.
“I don’t think the police report is complete, and it’s possible the police are withholding some information,” said Eric Wolders, an attorney representing the victim.
On Wednesday, Woldrs and his law firm, Wieders, Wills, Kravis & Moore, sent a letter to the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office and the Jersey City Police Department, seeking information about the case.
Wolders told The Huffington Press that he believes the case is still open, and is seeking the case files of the two police departments and the NJ Department of Health.
According to Woldgers, the story of the alleged missing girl was written by a woman who claimed that the bar had a “very strict dress code,” and that her friend was allegedly “stealing women.”
“We have been trying to get the police to release information, and have also tried to get them to release the case file, because we know there is a great deal of information still in there,” Woldings told The HuffPost.
“And if they can’t provide it, then we will pursue all avenues to get it.”
The police department and the Department of Justice are expected to be contacted by the victim’s family and lawyers about the status of the case, Wolds said.
At press time, Wowsers was not able to immediately get any comment from the Jersey County Prosecutor’s Office, but he did send a statement to HuffPost.
