THE SEARCH continues for a beloved New Hope bartender who disappeared without a trace over the weekend.

Sarah Majoras, 39, was last seen crossing the bridge from New Hope to Lambertville, N.J., on foot - headed toward her home in Lambertville - about 2 a.m. Saturday after she left John and Peter's Bar, on Main Street in New Hope, according to the Hunterdon County Prosecutor's Office.

She was reported missing about 2 p.m. Saturday.

Majoras, who works at John and Peter's, is 5 feet 4, 140 pounds, and has blond hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing blue jeans, brown leather boots, a white cap and a camouflage jacket, according to investigators.

A "Find Sarah Majoras" page on Facebook garnered more than 7,200 likes from supporters by Monday night. On the page, friends of the woman and hundreds of others posted well-wishes, prayers and plans for search parties.

"All's I want to do is help," wrote Michael Ast, one supporter on the Facebook page. "Can't stop thinking about this tragedy getting scarier by the moment. Prayers and best wishes from all my family and friends, who are sharing what information they can."

A group gathered Monday in Lambertville to aid in the search, and a post on the Facebook page said that another search party would meet at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Dive teams searched the river and canal between New Hope and Lambertville for any signs of the woman, helicopters searched from the air and K-9 investigators scoured the area Monday.

Fliers with Majoras' photo were posted on telephone poles and outside the bar on Main Street in New Hope near where she worked, and a stack of them sat on a table just inside the door of John and Peter's.

A bartender at the bar said Monday night that she and others did not want to talk about the missing woman.

"Everybody's just exhausted," she said. "We've all been searching since she went missing."

Tipsters are asked to contact the Lambertville Police Department at 609-397-3132.
