Parze then headed to her later grandmother’s house, here she had been staying, reported Asbury Park Press. The next morning, she failed to show up at work, prompting her parents and sisters to go to the authorities.
Police found Parze’s car parked in the driveway and her cellphone inside the house.
‘She would never go out of the house without her phone,’ said Sharlene Parze. ‘And she was supposed to be at work and she never showed up. Everything is just not her. You know, and I had just left her. And she was supposed to text me when she got home and she never did, but we know that she made it home because her car was in the driveway.’
Her parents told News 12 New Jersey Parze was likely with a man she had been seeing on and off.

The missing woman’s father, Edward Parze, said the last time he saw Stephanie was in a Snapchat video that showed her driving home after the family’s séance outing.
‘We just want to find her,’ he said. ‘She’s not the type of person who wouldn’t text, “Hey mom, I’m on my way to work.”’

According to her Facebook page, Parze attended a vocational school for cosmetology and worked as a makeup artist and pat-time baby sitter. Her relationship status says ‘single.’
She is described as 4 feet 11 inches tall, weighing 115lbs, with own eyes and brown hair. She was last seen wearing jeans, a burgundy v-neck shirt and burgundy sweater.
