Police search for missing Jersey City woman

Police in Jersey City are looking into the disappearance of a woman who was last seen a week ago.

It looks like business as usual at Tommy's Family Restaurant in Jersey City, but with every passing day the people who work are more and more afraid for their friend.

"I haven't slept in a couple of days. I'm really worried," said Donna Scocco.

Scocco waits tables alongside Randy Lehre, a 32-year-old mother of a 10 month old girl, who left for the weekend last Friday and hasn't been seen since.

"We called her, it rang a couple of times it went to voicemail, and then we called back again and from then on it's been going right into the voicemail," adds Scooco.

This morning, exactly one week since Lehrer disappeared, police pleaded with the public for help.

According to investigators, she's long had a volatile relationship with her husband in the home they shared here on Charles street.

Her husband has claimed to investigators Lehrer left after a fight on Saturday evening, but he didn't report her missing until Wednesday.

Cops say he's lawyered up, and has refused to cooperate as they search for his wife.

"This has been a perplexing case to the investigators you see here, her husband has been what I would consider to be less than cooperative if his spouse and the mother of his child is missing," said Chief Tom Comey.

Police say Lehre is 5'2", 145 lbs with a tattoo on her shoulder that says "laugh now, cry later".
