Philadelphia native missing in Poconos

Nicole Danielle Murray went to the Poconos and has not been heard from since Jan. 3.

Police are asking for the public’s help in finding Nicole Danielle Murray, 24, who has been missing since Jan. 3. She was last seen on Dec. 26 at Kensington and Allegheny avenues.

Murray reportedly went to the Poconos with a man known only as “Bob,” and possibly two others. According to the Pocono Record, Murray was last seen with this man.

Murray’s family believes the man named Bob has been posing as her using her cellphone.

Murray was last heard from on Jan. 3, when she asked a friend to pick her up from the Poconos. Pocono police have reason to believe that Murray never left the Poconos, and is likely still in the area.

Police describe Murray as having dyed red hair, blue eyes and a childlike face. She is 5 feet 3 or 4 and weighs about 80 to 100 pounds.

Anyone with any information is urged to call the Pocono Mountain Regional Police Department at 570–895–2400, or Philadelphia’s 24th Police District, 215–685–9852. ••
