CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – A car belonging to Alexis Murphy, a 17-year-old Virginia girl who has been missing since Saturday, was located Tuesday in a movie theater parking lot in Albermarle County, authorities confirmed, according to CBS affiliate WUSA.
According to the station, investigators waited for a police dog to check the vehicle before they began their search.
Around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, K-9 dogs reportedly picked up a scent at the car and led authorities through the parking lot and toward a nearby luxury apartment complex. K-9 units searched the clubhouse of building, the station reports.
Employees of the movie theater say they do not recall seeing Murphy at the theater over the weekend, according to the station. The theater does not have an outdoor security camera, but Nelson County Sheriff David Brooks says officials will return Wednesday to try to locate surveillance from surrounding businesses.
The Nelson County Sheriff’s Office is looking for people with information about this case. Their number is 877-570-8477.
