LIBERTY (AP) — Police are asking for the public's help in locating an 18-year-old from Liberty who has not been seen for nearly a month.
The family of Desirea Ferris last heard from her on May 1. She told her sister she was going to a friend's house but never arrived.
The Kansas City Star reports all communication stopped after she posted on Facebook at 3 a.m. May 2.
The family has hired a private investigator, conducted searches and distributed fliers.
Liberty police Capt. Andy Hedrick says leads have directed investigators to Kansas City.
Ferris is white, 5 feet, 1 inch, 101 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. She may be wearing a fuzzy pink jacket and a cream crop top. She was last known to have a tan purse.
