Missing Kentucky woman found in Las Vegas

A Kentucky woman who was reported missing by her family last month has been found in the Las Vegas Valley.

Jena Chisholm, 20, reportedly left her northern Kentucky home on Dec. 19 and was reported missing by her family after she failed to show up for a doctor’s appointment Dec. 26. Metro Police Lt. John Loretto said she was found late Friday, offering no other details.

Chisholm's car, a powder blue 2006 Volkswagen Beetle, was seen around 7 p.m. Thursday near Sierra Vista Drive and Cambridge Street.

Officer Laura Meltzer said someone made contact with her last night without realizing that she was reported missing. Officers tried to contact her, but police did not issue a critical missing person report.

There were no signs that Chisholm was ever in danger.

"The flier goes out when the situation meets the criteria for doing so," Meltzer told the Sun. "If you put out a flier for every person who goes missing, you'd stop getting people to pay attention."
