CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Law enforcement agencies in Corvallis are still waiting for the tip that will help them find 16-year-old Ava Carey after her disappearance last week.
Carey was last seen not far from her home near Village Green City Park in Corvallis on Aug. 20.
Police held a press conference Friday asking the public for more tips. Specifically, they want video from doorbell or surveillance cameras from northeast Corvallis.
We are in full operation with significant number of investigators looking at every possible tip lead or information that comes in,” said Corvallis Police Chief Nick Hurley. “We’re asking for folks that saw her after 5 p.m. on Thursday the 20th to please contact our tip line so we can follow up with you.
Search efforts have expanded recently, and the FBI is now involved. It's week after her disappearance, and police appear to have few leads about where the teen may have gone.
“It’s hard to say we’re any closer,” Hurley said.
Hurley said some people have submitted video the department, but did not elaborate on what it contained.
Police said Carey did leave with her cell phone, but does not have medication that she needs.
