NEW HOPE, Pa. -

Local police and New Jersey State Police alongside dozens of searchers in Bucks County are looking for a missing woman who was last seen late Friday night.

Police say Sarah Majoras was last seen Saturday, 2 a.m. walking home from John and Peter's, a local bar, located on South Main Street in New Hope.

FOX 29's Dave Kinchen reports police officers from New Hope and Lambertville police departments worked with members of New Jersey State Police in their search Sunday. A state police helicopter was also used during the search.

Dozens of members of the New Hope community conducted their own search, utilizing Facebook and Twitter to reach out to others for help.

Friends say she usually walks home by crossing the New Hope-Lambertville Free Bridge and then making a left onto North Union Street in Lambertville.

Organizers of the search believe it's unlikely that she wouldn't have gone home.

Majoras was last seen wearing a green camouflage jacket with a white knit hat and glasses.

Friends and searchers posted updates Sunday to a New Hope, Pennsylvania events Facebook page. The latest updates posted to the page showed tips and messages of support.

If you have any information, organizers of the search ask that you contact the New Hope Borough Police Department, the Lambertville Police Department or employees of John and Peter's at 215-862-5981.
