The Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office has offered no new information on the search for Aiello, who turned 22 Thursday except to say their search continues.

The Times of Trenton reports investigators are checking security camera footage in New Brunswick around the area where her car was found on Wednesday. Port Authority Police are also checking their security cameras on the George Washington Bridge where her cell phone, purse and wallet were found.

TCNJ spokesman Matt Golden told  the Times of Trentonr the mood on campus is “hard to describe. There’s concern, there’s hope, there’s sadness, there’s questioning.”

Friends and family have turned to social media to get the word about Aiello with a Twitter account, @FindPaigeAiello as well as a Facebook account.

Paige’s father Christoper Aiello says his daughter put a lot of pressure on herself, academically and as a tennis player, and everyone is praying she simply needed so time to be alone, but “that’s obviously looking at the glass half full versus half empty -I’m hoping.”

Too Much Success?

Christopher expressed concern to WCBS that she could not handle the success of being a co-captain of the TCNJ women’s tennis team, two jobs and acceptance into Rutgers law school. “She had hit almost like a wall where she felt she was not maybe either worthy of all this or she just couldn’t handle it. So the message that at least I’ve been saying all day is not only do we have to be watching our children that are not doing well and getting in trouble but we have to see and watch the kids that are the over-achievers.”

Her sister Erin told Erin told “With graduation looming, she (Paige) was a little down the past few weeks,” Erin said. “She has been very upset…we didn’t want her to be alone.”

Anyone with information regarding Aiello’s disappearance should contact Hillsborough police at (908) 369-4323 or the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office at 908-575-3300.
