PD: 3 weeks with no sign of missing Tempe teen

Posted: Updated:
TEMPE, AZ (CBS5) -

It's been three weeks since 19-year-old Adrienne Salinas disappeared from her Tempe neighborhood, and Tempe police said the investigation is continuing with little information on where she could be.

Her friends and family are fearing the worst.

Salinas was last seen on June 15, after she and her roommates hosted a party at their apartment. Since then, her roommates have been posting up fliers, trying to get the word out.

"Her father called me on Father's Day and had asked me, 'Have you heard from her?' And I said, 'No, actually, she didn't come home last night either,'" her roommate, Shainey Duggan, said.

The mystery started the night of June 14, when Adrienne and her roommates had around 40 people over at their apartment.

"Her and her boyfriend got into a little argument, and she was going to go to his house," Duggan said.

But she never got there. Police said Salinas blew out the two front tires to her car just a couple of blocks away from her apartment. Cell records show she called a cab to pick her up at a nearby gas station, but she never made it there, either.

"We've made hundreds of fliers, put them all over this area," Duggan said.

The Tempe Police Department said officers, with the law enforcement partners did a large scale search of the neighborhood in the area of Fifth Street and Hardy, looking for information on her disappearance.

Tempe police searched Tempe Town Lake.

"We just wanted to rule out any possibilities of her being in the lake. We obviously didn't find anything," said Michael Pooley with Tempe Police.

Pooley said officers have been conducting canvass searches of the neighborhood on a daily basis since her disappearance, but a larger scale search began at 5 a.m. June 29, and also included another search of the lake with dogs. Tempe police said there are 34 Tempe detectives, 30 Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies and posse members and 24 FBI agents investigating, as well as personnel from the Scottsdale Police Department, the Department of Interior and ASU, all helping with the investigation.

Pooley said they've identified most of the partygoers that night, but don't have much to go on.

Pooley said her phone was on around 5 the next morning. They're hoping someone knows what happened to Salinas, and will speak up. There is a $6,000 reward for any information on Salinas' disappearance.

"That's a good time of day people are out, jogging, walking their dogs, riding their bikes. We're hoping someone saw something," Pooley said.
