(Long Island, NY) New York City police have released the name of a missing woman whose car and belongings were discovered near Ocean Walk in West Gilgo Beach on Sunday.
Natasha Jugo, 31, an immigrant from Yugoslavia who has been residing in this country for a year, was last reported to have been seen by witnesses at her Alley Park home in Queens on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. She has not been seen since.
Her car, a 2009 Toyota Prius, was found on Ocean Parkway and some of her belongings were found on the sand near GilgoBeach on Sunday, cops said.
A Suffolk County Tobay Beach resident discovered Jugo’s belongings, including a wallet and driver’s license, and called police at approximately 11:20 a.m. The items were discovered in the jurisdiction of the Nassau County Police Department, who brought in the NYPD due to Jugo being a city resident. A search for Jugo began immediately, and soon her abandoned vehicle was discovered, according to authorities.
Based on a police description, Jugo is 5-feet, 7-inches tall, 120 pounds with blond hair and brown eyes. The last time she was seen she was said to be wearing a black robe, black coat, black boots, pink pajamas, and a gray sweatshirt with a hood.
Police have stated that this incident has no connection with the victims of the so-called “Long Island Serial Killer,” who is reported to have placed the remains of multiple individuals, including eight women, on Ocean Parkway in Gilgo Beach that were discovered between 2010 and 2011. Those deaths are still under investigation and remain unsolved.
