Authorities are are asking for the public’s assistance in the search for a missing 16-year-old female from Alpine, Utah, who may have been lured away by someone she met on social media.
Indica Huddleston was last seen the evening of Aug. 16 at the Junction gas station in Alpine, and police have unconfirmed reports that she was in Las Vegas.
According to a release from the Lone Peak Police Department, Huddleston’s friends dropped her off at the station, and she said she was going to walk home. Later, they found a note in her room indicating “she was frustrated and would be taken care of,” the release said. Messages on her phone and Facebook have led police to believe she was in touch with several unknown people and was possibly enticed to meet them. She has not posted to her Facebook page or other social media accounts since she went missing, according to police.
“If she was safe, she would have at least called us to let us know that she is safe. But everything surrounding her has gone completely silent," her father, Bryan Huddleston, said in a release.
In addition to an unconfirmed report that Huddleston was seen in Las Vegas, police believe she could be in the Seattle or Los Angeles areas.
Huddleston is 5 feet 3 inches tall, weighs 120 pounds, and has hazel eyes, olive skin and long brown hair. Anyone with information about her disappearance is asked to call 800-843-5678 or the Lone Peak Police Department at 801-756-9800.
