NJ Girl, 5, Mother, Reported Missing: Prosecutor

Police in New Jersey are searching for a 5-year-old girl believed to have been taken by her mother. 

Passaic prosecutors and police are asking for the public's help locating Valentina Manzueta and her 32-year-old mother, Cecilia Manzueta, both of Passaic. 

They were last seen at the Holiday Inn located at 450 Route 1 & 9 South in Newark, prosecutors say. 

Manzueta drives a white four-door 2016 Honda Accord with temporary license plate no. L516472. 

Prosecutors say the disappearance seems to have stemmed from a domestic disagreement between the girl's parents and don't believe the girl is in danger, but urge the public to contact Passaic Police at 973-365-3900 with any information.
