Overland Park Police Search for Missing Teen

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) _ Police are working leads they have received on the disappearance of an Overland Park teen missing since Saturday evening.

A five-thousand dollar reward is offered by the family of 18-year-old Kelsey Smith, who just graduated from Shawnee Mission West High School.

Her car was found at a shopping mall two hours after she ran an errand that family members believe should have taken less than 30 minutes. Smith's cell phone and ATM card were missing from her purse.

She had planned to meet her boyfriend at her home to go to a graduation party and then out to dinner.

Police say they're trying to establish Smith's whereabouts between 7:10 p.m. when she left a Target store and when her car was parked outside the Oak Park Mall at about 9:15.

Overland Park Police Captain Tom Fredrickson said Monday that they are hearing from people who might have seen the girl, a car like hers or a suspicious incident. But he says a lot of the leads have not panned out.
