FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) - Authorities have increased the reward for information that will help them find a New Jersey woman who disappeared nearly four months after she survived a shooting.

Tyrita Julius was last seen March 8 after having lunch with a friend. The friend told police Julius was dropped off at the Long Branch train station so she could return to Linden, where she lives.

Julius was undergoing physical therapy after she was shot several times in her torso and pelvic area while entering her car in Linden with her 15-year-old daughter in November 2015. The daughter sustained graze wounds.

The gunman fled.

Authorities say it’s possible the shooting and the woman’s disappearance are connected.

Monmouth County Crime Stoppers and Union County Crime Stoppers are jointly offering a reward of up to $15,000.
