IN WHAT AUTHORITIES are calling a bizarre coincidence, the boyfriend of the New Hope bartender who went missing this weekend once had a roommate who also disappeared after leaving the same bar.

Sarah Majoras, 39, was last seen walking across the bridge from New Hope into Lambertville, N.J., about 2 a.m. Saturday after leaving John and Peter's bar, where she worked, authorities said.

In 2000, musician David Anderson went missing after leaving the same bar and heading to the home he shared with roommate Adam Baker, who is Majoras' boyfriend, the Inquirer reported Tuesday. Anderson was found dead in a canal slipway three days after disappearing.

Hunterdon County, N.J., prosecutor Anthony Kearns said there was "no further evidence other than coincidence" that Baker had any involvement in either case, according to the paper. Kearns said there is no evidence of foul play in Majoras' case, but investigators are looking at every scenario.

Meanwhile, divers searched the Delaware and Raritan Canal using sonar equipment as other teams continued an aerial search. Authorities also released surveillance images that they hope lead to tips.

"It's a small town. It is possible that someone saw her," Kearns said in a statement. "Hopefully we'll get a phone call with some information."

Majoras is described as 5 feet 4, 140 pounds, with blue eyes and blond hair. She was last seen wearing blue jeans, brown leather boots, a white cap and a camouflage jacket. Security cameras show her crossing the bridge and turning north on Lambert Lane.
