The parents of a 16-year-old Utah County girl who went missing Friday are asking the public for help in locating her.
Indica Huddleston of Alpine left home after a disagreement with her parents last week and has yet to make contact with any friends or family. Her parents believe she could be in danger, citing information they have found while investigating her Internet activity over the past several weeks.
Included in her social media circle are people in Cache Valley, family members say, although they believe she could be anywhere in Utah or even outside the state.
Huddleston is 5-foot-3, 128 pounds, and she has long brown hair and hazel eyes. She did not leave home with a cellphone or any money.
“We have reason to believe that she left with someone older who she trusted that might have ill intent,” the family wrote in a press release. “It is not like her to run away, and it is even less like her to not be on social media (Facebook/Instagram) to at least let someone in her large network of friends and family know that she is OK.”
Huddleston’s parents have filed both a police report and listed her with the National Center for Missing or Exploited Children.
Police have yet to issue an Amber Alert for the teen, and when asked why by KSL-TV in Salt Lake City on Monday, declined to comment.
Friends have built a Facebook page in an effort to help with the investigation. It can be found at https://www.facebook.com/helpfindindicahuddleston, and family members have also been put in touch with an organization called For the Silent at http://forthesilent.org/.
Anyone with information about Huddleston is asked to contact the Lone Peak Police Department at 801-756-9800.
