Search for Katelyn Wolfe, missing 19-year-old Indiana woman, stretches into 4th day

Woman last seen on June 6

LINTON, Ind. - The search for a missing 19-year-old girl in southern Indiana will stretched into its fourth day on Monday, with friends and family turning to social media to help spread the word about her disappearance.

Katelyn Wolfe, 19, was last seen about 3 a.m. on June 6 in Linton, in Greene County.

Wolfe's last message was posted on Facebook. In the post, she indicated she felt she was being followed and that she was "out on a walk with creeps that keep driving by."

Wolfe has not been seen or heard from since. Her father reported her missing later that same day.

Wolfe is 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighs about 110 pounds, police said. She has black hair, wears glasses and a nose ring.

At the time of her disappearance, police believe she was wearing a black and white striped shirt and blue jeans.

A Facebook page -- "Finding Katelyn Wolfe" -- was created on Sunday, picking up nearly 2,000 "likes" by Monday evening.

The page was being used to coordinate searches for Wolfe and to spread her missing poster.

Linton Police Chief Troy Jerrell said that his staff has been working with Indiana State Police "around the clock" in the search for Wolfe.

"This is a tight close-knit community we have here. There's been an overwhelming response from friends and relatives and acquaintances of Katelyn's that are willing to go out and help and have been very supportive of the family," Jerrell said.

Her friends and family said it is out of her character to not contact anyone, and there were no signs that she planned on leaving.

"She didn't take anything, she didn't take clothes or makeup, if she went to stay with a friend, she would've taken that with her," said stepmother Laura Wolfe.

"It is crucial anyone with pertinent information comes forward with whatever information they may know," Jerrell said in a statement. "We are following up on (every) lead that comes in and this takes time."

"It's not like her to be gone for this long without communicating," Jerrell told the Greene County Daily World. "We do believe she's in danger."

Tips can be called in to Greene County Crime Stoppers at 812-847-5463 or toll-free at 866-446-4672.
