LAS VEGAS — A missing Kentucky woman might be in Las Vegas and Las Vegas police are assisting in the search.
Jena Chisolm, 20, was last seen by her family on Dec. 19.
She told her family that she would return home before her scheduled doctor’s appointment on Dec. 26. but did not show up.
She did tell her sister that would be going to Las Vegas but said she was not going to travel until after the Christmas holiday.
Chisolm is believed to be driving a 2006 blue Volkswagen Beetle with Kentucky license plate 316-MYB.
Her family has been active in trying to locate their daughter and has contacted local media in her hometown as well as authorities in Las Vegas and created a Facebook page.
They also were able to track Chisolm’s cellphone using GPS and said that the GPS indicated that their daughter was in Albuquerque, N.M., Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and then again in Las Vegas.
Her dog Chamber was found tied up outside of the Diamond Inn, located on South Las Vegas Boulevard, and the family is making arrangement to bring the dog home.
Finding the dog apparently abandoned leads the family to think something may have happened to Chisolm since her family says she would never abandon her dog.
Chisolm has been suffering from depression and had recently began to isolate herself from friends.
Anyone with information about Jena Chisholm is asked to call the Las Vegas police missing persons at 702-828-2907.
