Investigators say she was last seen around shortly before midnight Friday when she left her home with an unknown man. She reportedly met him on Craiglist to buy a cellular phone because her screen was broken.

The man was described as having a scar across the right side of his face and he was wearing a green shirt with writing on it.

He was driving a 1992-1995 white Ford F250, dually long-bed pickup truck. The truck did not have tinted windows and the style of cab was unknown.

Becker is described as 5'10", 160 lbs with red hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a gray and white halter top, black leggings and black shoes.
