"Everything that she was ..., 11 Aug 2015 [cached]
"Everything that she was saying appears to be a lie," said Newark Police Chief David Christler. "We don't have any proof that she was ever even in Newark."
Shortly after 2 a.m. Aug. 5, Newark police officers received information from a 38-year-old Newark man regarding the possible abduction of a woman who allegedly claimed to be a Manhattan resident named Alexsa Acevedo.
Christler said that the married Latino male, who speaks little English, told investigators through a translator that he had met this woman through the social media app "Kik" months before.
The Newark resident went on to explain to investigators that the relationship between the two was discovered by his wife, who he said received a phone call from a woman claiming to be Acevedo on Aug. 4, Christler said.
During that call, the alleged Manhattan resident argued with the wife, who then provided an address of the Newark home.
"She was angry and she wanted the person to come up there and she was going to fight for her husband," Christler said.
Several hours later, during the early morning hours of Aug. 5, the alleged Manhattan woman called to say that she had arrived in Newark. However, she did not show up at the married couple's home.
A subpoena of phone records revealed that the person who was claiming to be the Manhattan resident was making the calls from Boston, according to Christler.
"We are going to work with the Boston PD to make sure that nobody is missing out there, but we don't have any reason to believe that is a real picture or a real name," the chief said.
Contacting the Boston Police Department would be the last step before closing the case, Christler added.
Newark Village Board appoints ..., 31 Dec 2008 [cached]
Newark Village Board appoints David Christler as interim police chief
Former Deputy State Police Superintendent to apply for permanent position, but his attempts may be thwarted by officers already on the force
David Christler
In a move that came as a shock to many in the community, including members of the police department, the Village Newark Board voted, at a special meeting held on Thursday night, to appoint Newark native David L. Christler as Interim Police Chief for the Newark Police Department.
Christler, who retired from the New York State Police at the end of 2006 with the rank of Colonel-Deputy Superintendent of the New York State Police, began his career as a uniformed trooper in 1974.
According to Blandino, the pay package being offered to Christler is to be negotiated.
"Pay is not an issue with him (Christler) said the Village Mayor.
Christler has been busy since his retirement working on the design and construction of the Federal Drug Enforcement building in Plattsburg.
The former State Deputy Superintendent is 59 years old and said he was eager to return to law enforcement and public safety and ready to serve his life-long hometown Newark . David and his wife Diane have been married for 32 years. The couple who reside on Pine Ridge Drive in Newark have two grown daughters - Amy who resides in San Diego and Lauren who resides in Newark .
Christler said he has every intention of taking the open civil service police chief's test in May and applying for the permanent position as Newark Police Chief. He added that after 32 years on the road, Diane is very supportive of his decision to finally settle down.
There could be a roadblock to Christler's and the board's wishes for him to become chief. Under Civil Service law, current members of the Newark Police department may request a police chief ‘promotional test.' That test too would probably be given in May. Under civil service law, those taking the promotional test are given preference for the job over those taking the ‘competitive' test. If three, or more current Newark officers take and pass the test, regardless of how Christler scores on his test, he will not be eligible for list for the Newark Police Chief permanent position.
Wayne County Interim Personnel Director Jennifer Mortier, said she has met with Mayor Blandino who also traveled to Albany for a correct understanding of the civil service laws as they apply to testing for the police chief position.
Mortier said the Mayor was hopeful that once Christler is in the interim position, the current Newark Police Officers will accept him and possibly back off from taking the ‘promotional' test.
Mortier said that if only two of the current handful of officers who have expressed interest in setting up and taking the promotional test pass the test, Christler could be on the final list of three qualifying civil service candidates the Board has to select from.

Newark Police Chief David Christler said, "We're going after this and run it down until we get contact with the young lady. Christler says a local man called police saying Acevedo told him she was carjacked in Newark. We're told she was coming to visit the man and his wife from NYC. The couple told police they weren't expecting her and had never met her before.
Chief Christler said, "Right now all we have is a picture of a missing person who may or may not be missing, who lives in New York City with no known relatives and no known address.
Chief Christler said, "This particular number can't be traced. It's often used I'm told by young people when they want to do a spoof."
Police say the phone calls were made through a home computer. In the last call, Acevedo told the man she was near a brown house with a tall pine tree. Christler said, "We have a situation here where we don't want to say it's not real.
