Authorities on Tuesday have no new information on the search for a 74-year-old Whiting woman who has not been seen or heard from since Sunday.
Township police, as well as officers from the Ocean County Sheriff's Department and Prosecutor's Office, have been searching the area near Crestwood Village I, where Joan Conetta lives, said Manchester Chief of Police Brian Klimakowski.
"Officers were out doing searches all day," the chief said. Conetta often takes walks to the Crestwood Village Shopping Center, according to Klimakowski.
The description of Conetta's clothing was updated Monday night; though originally thought to be wearing a pink long-sleeve shirt, blue jeans and blue shoes, Klimakowski said that she is believed to be wearing a grey jogging suit.
Conetta does not have access to an automobile and may be suffering from disorientation, said Ocean County Prosecutor Marlene Lynch Ford in a statement.
"Family and friends of the missing woman are quite concerned for her safety, since it is not usual that she would not be seen or hear from for this length of time," Ford said.
Conetta may be travelling on foot or received a ride from another person, authorities believe. The woman wears glasses, but only for reading, according to Ford.
Conetta, who is Caucasian, is approximately 5 feet 1 inch tall, weighs 100 pounds, and has hazel eyes and dark grey hair, according to authorities.
Anyone who may have seen Conetta is asked to contact Police Department Detective Chris Hemhauser at 732-657-2009, ext. 4207, or Detective Brian Haggerty of the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office at 732-929-2027.
