New Jersey authorities are continuing their search Tuesday for an 18-year-old high school student who was last seen Monday morning.

Burlington Township Police say Sarah Townsend, 18, was last seen Monday morning at 7 a.m. when she left her Florence home to go to school.

Police tell that her car was found in a park near a pond by her boyfriend. Her purse and cell phone were inside the car. 

Police do not suspect a crime has occurred.

The Townsend family asked their daughter to come home during a news conference Tuesday and said she would not be in trouble.

The family is also offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to her whereabouts.
