Adrienne Salinas search: Reward increased to $6,000 to find missing 19-year-old student

TEMPE, AZ - People are taking to the streets to pass out fliers in efforts to find 19-year-old Adrienne Salinas who has been missing for over a week .

Police said Salinas, a Gateway Community College student, was last seen around 5 a.m. on June 15 near Brown and Roosevelt Streets in Tempe. She was out partying.

A reward for information leading to Salinas has been increased to $6,000.

Pamela Cross, Salinas' aunt, said that she has the fliers printed and will be passing them out later this week.

Salinas was supposed to go over to her boyfriend's house, Tempe police spokesman Mike Pooley said. But  she never made it.

Her father located her vehicle a few blocks away from where she was last seen. Police said the vehicle had some front-end damage and two flat tires. They believe she may have been involved in a traffic accident late Friday or Saturday morning.

The doors were locked, the overnight bag she packed was gone, and there were no signs of a struggle.

"Something happened between those two short blocks to her apartment and her car," said Adrienne's father Rick. "Something took place."

She is Hispanic, 5 feet, 6 inches tall, with brown hair and brown eyes. She has a tattoo of a sun on her left neck/ear area.

She was last seen wearing a black sheer blouse with white polka dots, a black bra and dark colored jeans.

If you have any information on her whereabouts, you are asked to call the Tempe Police Department at 480-350-8311.
