A local congregation is offering a reward for information leading to the safe return of an Englewood teenager who disappeared last month.
Touro College student Caroline Starkman, 18, went missing after visiting a "friend" in Brooklyn the weekend of July 6, according to a message from Congregation Ahavath Torah. She also goes by Vicki or Victoria.
The Englewood congregation, where her parents are members, has created a fund to cover a $10,000 reward for information leading to Starkman’s safe return, the message said.
Family members filed a report with police, hired a private investigator and reached out to contacts in Brooklyn, but have now decided to make a public plea for information in the case, the congregation said.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Englewood Police Detective Barry Miller at 201-568-4875 or 201-871-6416, or Private Investigator Jerry Clarke 845-264-5105 or 866-357-4769, 24-hours a day.
