In New Jersey, everyone in the state is a mandated reporter when it comes to issues of child abuse and neglect. You don't have to be 100% sure of what's going on to be required to report it. It's enough that you have a reasonable suspicion that someone may be sexually abusing a child. The matter should be reported to DCF. Failure to do so is actually a criminal offense in NJ and can be prosecuted.

Here's the statute, below:

9:6-8.14. VIOLATIONS INCLUDING FAILURE TO MAKE REPORT; DISORDERLY PERSON

Any person knowingly violating the provisions of this act including the failure to report an act of child abuse having reasonable cause to believe that an act of child abuse has been committed, is a disorderly person.
