HILLSBOROUGH, N.J. (WABC) -- Authorities are searching for the captain of the College of New Jersey's women's tennis team.

At approximately 3:00 p.m., her mother noticed that her vehicle, a 2006 grey Audi A4, was taken without her permission and that her daughter was missing. Her parents could not reach Paige by cell phone, and around 7:45 p.m., Mr. Aiello reported her missing with the Hillsborough Township Police Department.
