Sister Heeji Nada Kang, 20, from The Woodlands, Texas, went missing while serving as a full-time missionary in the Utah Ogden Mission, LDS Church spokesman Eric Hawkins said in a media statement.

Kang was last seen on Monday evening when she left on foot from her apartment in Ogden, according to the statement.

“No foul play is suspected, but Sister Kang was emotionally distressed when she was last seen,” Hawkins said in the statement. “The Ogden Police were notified Monday evening. We pray she is safe and will be found quickly.”

Anyone with information on Kang’s whereabouts is asked to call the Ogden Police Department at 801-395-8221.

    Are you referring to the Mormon church when you say pressure? Are missionaries like police officers in a sense that you have to have a certain number of people that you convert to Mormonism as cops have a certain number of tickets to hand out ( you know, for revenue)

    Lots of flooding currently in Woodlands TX where she is from. Historic rains and rivers flooding many homes and ranches.
    Maybe she went home to help family or ??
