    Police assist families' search for missing NJ's
    Suzanne Russell, @SRussellMyCJPublished 3:27 p.m. ET May 18, 2017

    Amanda Rae Carroll, 20, was last seen at her Raritan Township home on May 1, 2000.

    The next morning, Carroll, the mother of two young girls, spent time on the internet talking to friends and called a friend in Canada as she was preparing to relocate to Arizona to live with her father and daughters.

    She hasn't been seen or heard from in the 17 years since. There has been no activity involving her bank account or Social Security number, according to police.

    Her husband, Matthew Carroll, a Marine sergeant who worked as a recruiter in Somerville and the Iselin section of Woodbridge, reported her missing after returning from a trip to his parents' home in New York with the couple's children.

    Carroll, described as 5-foot-6, about 145 to 150 pounds with red hair, brown hazel eyes, a tattoo of a sun and moon on her right ankle, floral pattern tattoo on the back of her neck, pierced ears, wearing a white shirt and jeans and gold rings, is one of many people missing in New Jersey.


    According to the New Jersey State Police, between 14,000 and 16,000 people are reported missing in New Jersey every year. Since 1969, there are more than 1,100 unsolved missing persons cases statewide and more than 300 investigations of unidentified human remains.

    On Saturday, the New Jersey State Police will host a free event geared to help police identify the missing and bring them home.

    The event, called Missing in New Jersey, will be from 1 to 5 p..m. at the Rutgers University College Avenue Student Center, 126 College Ave., New Brunswick.

    Families, friends, communities and organizations working to locate those missing in New Jersey are invited to attend and pre-register to ensure their loved ones are commemorated in a candlelight vigil and slideshow, according to Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey and Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police Col. Joseph R. Fuentes.


    Those interested in attending are asked to bring two biological relatives — one male and one female — of the missing person, along with any identifying documents such as police reports, dental and body X-rays, doctor and dental information and photographs.

    The event will give families and friends of missing people a place to gather to heal, network, learn and keep their hope alive. Families will be able to provide biometric dates, which are used to help solve missing persons cases and unidentified human remains.

    Those unsure about their own origins and background can submit DNA that could be linked to an unidentified child abduction case, according to the New Jersey State Police.

    Raritan Township Police Lt. Ben Donaruma said he has spent about seven to 10 years looking for Carroll, a search that has taken him as far as Michigan.

    He said no suspect has been identified, no arrest made and no body found. He said every lead has been investigated to the fullest extent.

    "We left no stone unturned," said Donaruma, the lead detective in the case. "We exhausted all means."

    News reports at the time of Carroll's disappearance indicated that police did not think it was an act of random foul play. Her husband was considered a key suspect, but there was not enough evidence to charge him.

    According to Donaruma, at the time of Carroll's disappearance, she was in divorce proceedings and planning to move to Arizona with her daughters. Her father, who lived in Arizona, has since died, and her daughters, now young adults, live in Pennsylvania.

    Donaruma said the older daughter contacted him when she turned 18 to inquire about her mother's disappearance.

    "We'd like to get closure on this case and for the family, as well," Donaruma said.

    According to the New Jersey State Police Missing Persons Unit website, besides Carroll, there are 15 other missing Central Jersey residents.

    In Middlesex County:

    • Demetrius Brian Branham, 46, was last seen on June 22, 2015. The website include no other information about his disappearance;

      Details of Disappearance
    Amanda Carroll was last seen on May 1 at her Greenwood Place home. Her husband reported her missing the next day after returning from an overnight trip with their two children to his parents' house in New York.

    In the morning hours of May 2, 2000, Amanda Carroll chatted over the Internet with a friend in Texas about her life and imminent plans to move to Arizona with her two young children. She sounded optimistic and offered no signs that she was going to run away. She went to bed around 6:30 a.m., shortly after making a call to another friend in Canada. Again, she was upbeat about moving to Arizona to live with her father. That was the last time anyone heard from Carroll.

    Amanda Carroll was not in trouble with the law and some of her belongings were gone from the house. The couple had been living in their rented home for about six months. Amanda Carroll didn't have a car and spent a lot of time in Internet chat rooms.

    Police checked some of the contacts Amanda made through the chat rooms. They concluded those people were not suspects. Police have interviewed cab, limo and bus drivers, who said they did not pick up Amanda Carroll.
    Foul play is suspected.

    Some interesting information is included in Amanda's Charley Project profile.

    Details of Disappearance

    Amanda was last heard from on May 2, 2000. She resided in a rented home on Greenwood Place in Flemington, New Jersey. During the early morning hours she chatted on the internet with a friend from Texas about Amanda's plans to take her children and move to Arizona, the place of her birth, to live with her father. She was upbeat at the time and looking forward to the move. Amanda spoke to a Canadian friend on the phone before going to bed at 6:30 a.m. She has never been heard from again.

    Amanda's husband, Matthew Carroll, a Marine Corps captain, was named as a suspect in her case several months after her disappearance. He and the couple's two young daughters were visiting his parents in New York on the day she was last heard from. Amanda married Matthew when she was 16 years old. The relationship was reportedly happy until the family moved to New Jersey six months prior to her disappearance, at which point Amanda became depressed and decided to leave her husband and seek a divorce. The police were called to their residence two days before her disappearance due to a domestic dispute, but no violence had occurred and no charges were filed.

    Matthew has never been charged in Amanda's case and has stated he believes she left of her own accord, possibly with someone she met on the internet. Authorities have investigated all of her known internet acquaintances, however, and cleared them of involvement in her case. Her disappearance remains unsolved.
