UPDATE: Police Searching for Missing CamCo Residents

Kayla and Jeremiah Maven returned home Thursday, authorities say, but there is still no word on Sukhvinder Singh, who was last seen Tuesday night.

UPDATE - 8:20 p.m., Sept. 20: Kayla Maven and her 2-month-old son returned to their Sicklerville home early Thursday afternoon, police said.

The 16-year-old girl and her infant child were healthy.

Gloucester Township Police Juvenile Investigations Unit and the state Division of Youth and Family Services are looking into the incident.

Authorities still have no word on the whereabouts of Sukhvinder Singh.


South Jersey police are searching for three people tonight in two unrelated missing persons cases: a teen mother from Sicklerville and her infant child; and a gas station attendant from Chesilhurst.

Kayla Maven, 16, and her 2-month-old son, Jeremiah, left their home on foot sometime after midnight Tuesday, Gloucester Township Police said. She reportedly had the child's diaper bag and some baby food with her, but no cell phone; neither do police know what she was wearing at the time.

Earlier in the evening, Sukhvinder Singh, 33, of Chesilhurst, went missing from the BP Gas Station on the White Horse Pike in Winslow Township. The station was left unattended with the power on.

According to an email from the Camden County Prosecutor's Office, "Singh is described as an Indian male of Middle Eastern decent, 5-feet, 7-inches tall, 170 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen [around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday] wearing a blue turban, blue & red shirt, black pants, black sneakers, and a silver bracelet."

Authorities believe the Mavens could be in the Vineland, Cumberland County, area. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the New Jersey State Police Missing Persons Unit and the Camden County Prosecutor's Office have been notified of the search.

They have no leads on the whereabouts of Singh.

Police urge anyone who has seen the Mavens or who has information about the matter to call 856-228-4500 or the Gloucester Township Crime Stoppers tip line at 856-842-5560.

Anyone with information on Singh's location is asked to call the Winslow Township Police Department at 609-561-3300 or to email ccpotips@ccprosecutor.org.
