Cape May Court House, New Jersey – Cape May County Prosecutor Robert L. Taylor and
Chief Chad Callahan – Ocean City Police Department are seeking the assistance of the
public in locating and/or identifying a homeless woman from the Virginia and North
Carolina area, who may be a 21 year old missing person.
In January of 1994, Renee LaManna was reported missing to the Ocean City (New
Jersey) Police Department and entered into NCIC as a Missing Person.
In January of 2015, a check of databases was conducted and it appears that Renee had
been quarried numerous times in various locations throughout the United States, since
1994. It is believed that she is traveling from area to area, utilizing homeless shelters,
and missions as means of shelter.
In February of 2015, a call was received by family members from a civilian, who
assisted a “homeless person” believed to be Renee, in the Franklin County, Virginia
area. This civilian aided a woman who matched a photograph which was posted on
social media and contacted family members in October of 2014. Since that time, she
has departed to an unconfirmed location. However, has been seen and assisted by
other good samaritans in the Virginia and North Carolina area.
The attached photograph was taken by a law enforcement agency from the Asheville,
North Carolina area during an intervention. This woman displayed has utilized several
different names during her interaction with law enforcement. However, has never been
able to supply any valid identification. This woman is believed by family members to be
Renee LaManna, however, her identity has not been confirmed.
Anyone who may have information regarding this person may contact Detective
Cradock at the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office 609-465-1135 or by e-mail
