JACKSON — A woman who went missing after heading out to the Jackson Premium Outlets five minutes from her home has been located.

Jackson police Capt. Steve Laskiewicz said his department was contacted by Philadelphia police and told that Nicole Nelson and her vehicle were located in the Kensington section of the city. After Philadelphia officers spoke with her they released her without further action, according to Laskiewicz.

Philadelphia police did not disclose the circumstances of Nelson being found.

Nelson was last seen leaving her home on Alissa Terrace on Feb 17. She was supposed to be headed to the Outlets, about a five-minute drive,  and had not been heard from since.

She was reported missing to Jackson police on Sunday.

With all the hustle and bustle involved in the average New Jersey resident's day, coffee is essential. It doesn't matter whether you're living in the cities of North Jersey or the vacation spots at the shore.

In fact, as the former owner of two Jersey shore coffee houses, Coffee Dot Comedy in Sea Isle City and the Daily Grind in Ocean Grove, I know firsthand how much people at the Jersey shore love their coffee.

Below is what they came up with. (And see this other article for their coffee shop and cafe recommendations for Central Jersey.)
