A 14-year-old girl went missing from her residence in Natrona County on Sunday, and the sheriff’s office is seeking the public’s assistance in locating her.
Madison Utecht was last seen between 9 and 9:30 p.m. Sunday. She is believed to have left her residence off U.S. Highway 20/26 on foot that night after others in the house went to bed, said Lt. Gus Holbrook of the Natrona County Sheriff's Office.
Utecht left a note and reportedly took a sleeping bag with her, Holbrook said. Her family lives on 100 acres of land, and she does not have any access to transportation. Officials declined to release the contents of the note.
Holbrook said no foul play is suspected, and Utecht is not believed to be suicidal.
Utecht is homeschooled, does not have a cell phone and doesn’t have many friends, authorities say. She is described as 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighs 115 pounds. She has blue eyes and long blonde hair.
Authorities ask that anyone with knowledge of the girl’s whereabouts contact the Natrona County Sheriff’s Office at 307-235-9282.
