    For NJ.com

    WEST DEPTFORD TWP. -- Police have arrested three people in connection with a burglary at a township home, authorities reported.

    West Deptford Police responded to the 700 block of Shields Avenue on Tuesday afternoon for a report of a burglary.

    The burglars entered through an unlocked rear window and made off with several pieces of jewelry and electronics, including an iPad Mini, Xbox 360 and various accessories.

    Police identified two suspects, Colin Morace, 30, and Horace Johnson, 31, both of West Deptford.

    Morace was found at his home and arrested on active warrants. He told police he committed the burglary along with Johnson. Johnson was located in Camden City and arrested for active warrants. He also admitted to his involvement in the crime, police said.

    Police learned Miguel A. Martinez III, 30, of Deptford Township, was possibly in possession of some of the stolen items and executed a search warrant at his residence. There, they found a stolen iPad Mini and suspected heroin.

    Investigators were able to recover several of the stolen items from various locations based on information provided by Morace and Johnson, police said.

    Morace and Johnson were charged with burglary, theft and conspiracy to commit burglary. They were released pending court appearances.

    Martinez was charged with receiving stolen property and possession of a controlled dangerous substance and placed in Salem County Correctional Facility in default of $7,500 bail.

    Deptford Township Police assisted in the investigation.

    Disappeared 'from the face of the earth

    Kim Mulford, @CP_KimMulford

    Published 1:26 p.m. ET May 18, 2017

    There is no gravestone, no roadside memorial, nowhere to place flowers in memory of Tomiene Jones. For the family who last saw their "Meme" 15 years ago, there is no consolation. There are no answers.

    She's just gone.

    "It still seems like yesterday, like 2002," said Cheryl Jones, Tomiene's mother. "Nothing's changed."

    On Saturday, Tomiene's parents, brother, aunt, uncle and her 17-year-old daughter will travel from their South Jersey homes to Rutgers University in New Brunswick, where the N.J. State Police and the FBI are hosting an event to help identify and return more than 1,100 people missing in New Jersey.

    Related: South Jersey's missing

    Intended as a way to gather DNA, photographs, X-rays and other identifying documents, "Missing In New Jersey" is open to the friends and family of the missing "to heal, network, learn, and most importantly, keep hope alive," according to an announcement state police posted on Facebook. It's the first such event ever held in New Jersey.

    Between 14,000 and 16,000 people are reported missing in New Jersey each year. More than 1,100 cases have gone unsolved since 1969, and there are more than 300 unidentified human remains. The state police list some open cases online, usually with a photo, a brief description and a couple sentences about the last known sighting.

    Among them is Jones, a 19-year-old who was reported missing from her Harrison Township apartment after she didn’t pick up her 2-year-old daughter from a babysitter. The 5-feet-7 teen was last seen wearing an off-shoulder sundress in red, white and orange.

    Left unmentioned is her penchant for drawing out funny stories, the delight she took in the daughter she called her "buddy," and her scent of fruit and citrus, the only detail her little girl still recalls.

    Sgt. Bob Hemphill, an investigator for the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office, has worked the case since it was a day old, chasing down thin leads and keeping in close contact with Tomiene’s parents, who are raising their granddaughter, Janiyah. Over the years, he has watched Janiyah grow into a high school student who looks much like her mother and who shares her dream of becoming a veterinarian.

    'You have to find something'
    Each month, Hemphill reports back to his office during a round-table discussion on open homicide and missing person cases.

    “It’s been extremely frustrating for me as an investigator because I want to be able to bring this family to closure,” said Hemphill, who visited the Jones family in person to invite them to the May 20 forum.

    “Some months you don’t get anything, but you have to keep going,” Hemphill added. “You have to find something.”

    The missing persons forum opens a wound, said Tom Jones, but it also offers hope that something will happen to their daughter's cold case.

    "It was frustrating when it first happened, and it’s frustrating now," said Jones, who gave his daughter a feminine version of his first name. "This was in 2002 and it’s still frustrating to me ... I just pray every day. I basically, in my heart, turned it over to God. God knows best and I don’t get myself all bogged down in all that no more. All that’s just up to God now."

    For a long time, Cheryl Jones would sit by the front window, waiting to see Tomiene walking down the lane. The couple still hold hope their daughter is alive. They haven't petitioned the courts to declare their daughter dead, nor have they held a memorial service.

    "It’s 15 years, and I still can’t do it. I can’t. That makes it seem like she’s gone for real," Cheryl Jones said.

    "I think she deserves that before both of us pass away," Tom Jones said, wiping away tears. "Everybody should have a final say, you know? That's why you have a memorial. You're giving that person recognition, even though she was 19.

    "That's the hard part."

    There are hundreds of families like the Joneses, and many see little public attention paid to their cases.

    'We're waiting, waiting, waiting'
    Miguel Martinez Jr., a Pennsauken police officer, often goes into Camden where he worked for 25 years to search for his 31-year-old son, Miguel Martinez III, also known as "Mike." He last saw him on a street corner near his Deptford home in June 2016. A man with a troubled history of drug use and a police record, the younger Martinez sometimes would disappear for a few days, but would always stay in touch with his mother and sisters.

    Wrecked with worry, the family has submitted DNA samples to a national registry in hopes of identifying him. Martinez often hands out flyers with his son's photo and information on it, but his efforts have turned up empty.

    "It just seems like he fell off the face of the earth," Martinez said. "No one seems to know anything about him."

    Detective Bryn Wilden of the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office hopes publicity might stir someone's memory.

    "If anyone has any information, just point us in the right direction so we can find out what happened to him," Martinez said. "We need something. We're waiting, waiting, waiting — and nothing."

    Investigators, too, ask for any scraps of information from the public. Frequently, their efforts are stymied by potential witnesses who won't share what they know.

    In Gloucester City, two detectives are assigned to find Robert William Dornbach, who disappeared in November 2005 at the age of 17, after telling his mother he was going out to get a pizza.

    The cold case is never far from the minds of Detective Keith O'Donnell and Detective Sgt. Carl DePoder, who keep the case files in a box by their desks. Each November, the two reopen the case and hunt for fresh leads, but they have encountered resistance from two people they believe might have information. They obtained a search warrant for the home of one person, but their efforts turned up empty.

    "We've ran down everything that's come in," DePoder said, during an interview at the police station.

    'We would like to have closure'
    People are often reported missing, perhaps two or three each month, the investigators noted, but usually are found quickly. Recently, by tracking a cellphone, detectives found an adult several states away who decided to leave home and wanted to be left alone. Others return on their own.

    Dornbach's case remains a mystery.

    "This has probably been, at least in my career, the most troubling thing," DePoder said. "Because there's no closure ... We think about it every day."

    Some cases are so cold, detectives have lost touch with the missing person's loved ones.

    Twenty-one years after 12-year-old Celina Mays vanished from her bedroom, Willingboro Det. Erin Harry is following a tip related to her disappearance. The detective inherited the case last summer, after the previous investigator retired. She hasn't yet spoken with family members, but is working with the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children to generate an updated image of what the girl would look like now.

    When she disappeared one night, Celina was nine months pregnant and lived in a cloistered environment with family and members of her church.

    "I’m willing to talk to anybody about it — anybody," Harry said. "A lot of people may be afraid to come forward because she might not be alive ... We need to talk to anybody that would have any kind of information."

    She's also working on a case of a 23-year-old Vietnamese man who went missing from his uncle's Willingboro home last June: Hui Do, who also goes by Quang T. Do. The Rutgers–Camden student disappeared with only his laptop and a bank card. Since he is adopted, police aren't able to collect DNA from his family members.

    Asked what information might help, Harry said: "Anything, because I have nothing."

    In each missing person's case, investigators beg for tips from the public. Hemphill, the Gloucester County detective who has searched for Tomiene, hasn't given up.

    "I’m never going to forget. The family will never forget and I believe there is somebody out there who has information that can help this investigation," Hemphill said.

    Tomiene's father offered one plea.

    "If anybody knows anything, would you please come forward?" he asked. "It's nothing too late. We would like to have closure."
