Parze failed to show up for work the next morning. Police found her car in the driveway and her keys inside the house.
Cops deemed the circumstances surrounding her disappearance as suspicious.
Her ex-boyfriend, John D. Ozbilgen, was considered a person of interest in the case.
Ozbilgen reportedly sent her 10 unaswered texts filled with obscenities the night before she disappeared, reported the Asbury Park Press.
He was held by police on an unrelated charge but was freed on Tuesday.
