Frederick County police say tips about a missing mother of two are pouring in, but they still have not found Teresa Lynn Coie Lentz. The 49-year-old Frederick woman disappeared on Wednesday.

Frederick County Sheriff's deputies say Lentz's husband and two children last saw her at their residence on Bartonsville Road around noon Wednesday. They say she last spoke to her husband around 1:30 p.m. on her cell phone.

Family members told police Lentz left the house to run errands in Frederick and that they began to worry about her in the late afternoon when she didn't respond to text messages and phone calls.

Lentz's daughter began looking for her around 6:30 p.m., and at approximately 9:45 p.m., she found her vehicle parked along Reels Mill Road. Police say some of Lentz's personal items, including her cell phone and vehicle keys, were found inside the vehicle.

The vehicle is a 2000 blue Ford Expedition with white lettering on side and rear windows, which says, "Mountaintop Electric, Residential Light, Commercial Service and Upgrades, 240-285-8795, 301-663-3067" and a Baltimore Ravens emblem on the rear of the vehicle.

Michael McAleer says he saw the SUV pulled over on the shoulder of the road, but Lentz wasn't who he saw inside.

"I guess it was 10 of 6 [p.m.] last night, we saw it sitting there. I'm pretty positive I saw a man sitting in the driver's seat and I didn't think anything of it,” he says.

McAleer says he told police what he saw.

Deputies assisted by the Maryland State Police have been investigating and searching the area. The Sheriff's Office and Maryland State Police K-9s were used in the search along with the Maryland State Police's Search Management Team and Aviation. The search continued throughout the night, but Lentz has not yet been located.

Family members have no reason to believe that Lentz would leave the area without making them aware.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Teresa Lentz or who saw her and/or her vehicle should call 301-600-1046.
