Police who responded to the minor crash off Oak Ridge Road near the Jefferson border found the car and the items but not Stephanie Bronaugh of the Sussex County town of Lafayette, 25 miles due east.
An "exhaustive" but unsuccessful search involved K9 units a State Police helicopter and West Milford's Search & Rescue and Special Operations teams.
Exactly a year ago Tuesday, police in Sparta said they found Bronaugh slumped over the wheel of her 2016 BMW, with 10 wax folds of heroin in the driver's side compartment, as well as a small amount of pot and several prescription pills in the car.
They processed and released her pending court action on drug charges.
Anyone who sees Bronaugh or knows where to find her urged to call Wes Milford police: (973) 728-2800.
