A search is underway for a 17-year-old girl from Nelson County whose car was found in the parking lot of a multiplex in Charlottesville.
Media reports say more than 50 state, federal and local law enforcement officials are involved in the search Wednesday for Alexis Tiara Murphy.
Murphy's car was found Tuesday night, three days after she was last seen by her family in Lovingston. An aunt says she planned to travel to Lynchburg that day.
The FBI describes Murphy as a 5-foot-7 black female weighing 156 pounds. She was last seen wearing a pink blouse, floral spandex pants and brown boots. She was carrying a gray purse.
Anyone with information concerning the whereabouts of Murphy should contact the Nelson County Sheriff's Office at 434- 263-7050.
