Cedar City Police were notified June 18 that Ashley Gooch, 17, was missing.

Since then, they have continued to investigate any and all leads but to no avail, Sgt. Jimmy Roden said.

“Her parents are worried and they’ve given us permission to put her information out there so that maybe we can get some help locating her,” he said.

Gooch may still be in the Cedar City area. However, authorities are not sure of her whereabouts.

“We’ve had calls that she’s out of the area and ones that put her still in Cedar,” Roden said. “We’re following any leads we get, but at this point we’re just not sure where she’s at.”
