We are actively investigating the report of a missing person. 18 year old Elibit Mena was last heard from around 5pm last night. His mother grew concerned when she observed his unoccupied car parked in the parking lot of Shenandoah Park located on South Clover Street. Further investigation revealed that he was expected to meet some friends at the park last evening. He was last seen wearing a blue jacket, gray sweatpants and black sneakers. It is unknown what may have happened to him. At this time, we are coordinating search efforts with the New Jersey State Police, The Ocean County Prosecutors Office, The Ocean County Sheriff’s Department as well as Chaverim and LCSW, local volunteer groups.
