MEDFORD, N.Y. (PIX11) — Family, friends and strangers joined police in the search for answers in the disappearance of a 21-year-old mother from Long Island.

Sarah Goode was last seen June 6 in Shirley. Her 1999 BMW 328i was found “under suspicious circumstances” days later in a wooded area near the home Goode shared with her mother.

Dozens of searchers scoured the woods off Fire Avenue in Medford Monday night. Among them was Goode’s sister, who became concerned after the young mother didn’t call her family for two days and reported her sister missing Sunday.

“We weren’t allowed to search earlier because the police were still doing their investigations,” Elizabeth DeMuria said.

DeMuria is trying to stay strong, searching for her sister, all the while missing her terribly.

Frank Ingrao came out with his service dog, Lola. A friend of Goode’s family, Ingrao felt he had to help — and told PIX11 he hopes searchers don’t find her in the woods, and instead they discover her alive and well elsewhere.

“Once a Marine always a Marine,” Ingrao said. “We’re going to do the best we can for her.”

Goode is the mother of a 4-year-old daughter and a medical technician, according to police.

The young woman is described as white with a light complexion. She is 5 feet 3 inches tall, weighs about 100 pounds, and has long brown hair, brown eyes and a flower tattoo on one foot.

Police ask anyone with information about Goode’s disappearance to call Sixth Squad or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
