A missing Kentucky woman may have made her way to Las Vegas, according to the woman’s family.
Jena Chisholm, 20, was last seen on Dec. 19 at her Florence, Ky. home, according to a Facebook page dedicated to finding her.
A flyer made by her family and posted to the Facebook page said Chisholm left in her 2006 powder blue Volkswagen Beetle with Kentucky license plate 316-MYB. She promised her family that she would return in time for a Dec. 26 doctor’s appointment, but never returned, the flyer said.
“She told me she was going to Vegas,” Jena’s sister Josie Chisholm told WCPO-TV, Channel 9 in Cincinnati. “But she told me she was going after Christmas.”
Her family, using a GPS application, tracked Chisholm’s cellphone to several locations across the country. The phone was tracked to St. Louis, Albuquerque, N.M., Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and then again back to Las Vegas, her family said.
Chisholm’s dog, Chamber, was found tied to a fence outside the Diamond Inn Motel near Las Vegas Boulevard and Russell Road.
Chisholm has two tattoos: a black rag doll on the left clavicle and a large black and red tattoo on the right side of her torso.
Las Vegas police spokeswoman Laura Meltzer said the department is assisting the Boone County Sheriff’s Department in Kentucky with the investigation.
