A Kokomo family remained on edge Thursday night as they waited to hear from authorities about their missing daughter.
Police said Kelly Armstrong has been missing for at least 10 weeks.

Armstrongs father, David Armstrong, made a plea for help in finding her.
"The community and all the surrounding people, just leave your lights on so Kelly can find her way home," David Armstrong said. "In hopes that someone has seen Kelly, we're hoping for the best, obviously not the worst. We're hoping that somebody has seen her. Maybe shes lost her way or something."
Her father said that Kelly Armstrong has an 18-month-old child who has been placed with Child Protective Services.
For her not to contact any family member is just totally out of character. That's not my child, David Armstrong said.
Kokomo police Maj. Brian Seldon said Kelly Armstrong's family didn't report her missing until they came to her house and spoke to neighbors who hadn't seen her in weeks.
"We are behind the eight ball a little bit, so we're talking to individuals who might have known her or her acquaintances just to get some information about where she where she could possibly be," Seldon said.
Since Kelly Armstrong disappeared, police arrested her boyfriend Travis Funke on an escape charge. Authorities said he cut off his ankle monitoring bracelet a judge ordered him to wear for a driving conviction.
Funke is not facing charges in connection with Armstrongs disappearance. Meanwhile, family members are trying to stay strong.
"If I heard her voice right now, I don't know what I would say. I would probably break down, David Armstrong said.
Armstrongs family is asking the Kokomo community to leave their porch lights on to raise awareness about her disappearance.
