Michaela Wells, 16, has been missing since Sunday, March 2.
According to family members, Michaela, the current USA National Miss Nebraska Teen, had spent the day shopping for a gown to wear in the upcoming USA National Pageant in Florida.
Just after 8:30 p.m., Michaela told her grandmother, who was visiting, that she was going to take out the trash. She hasn’t been seen since.
Bellevue Police have confirmed that Michaela is listed as a missing juvenile, but say they do not believe she was taken against her will. Family members disagree.
“She couldn’t be happier,” her mother Teresa Norris told FoxNews.com. “She couldn’t get a smile off her face because she was also asked out on a date.”
Michaela is 5’6” and weights 120 pounds. She has long brown hair and brown eyes.
According to family members, she was last seen wearing blue jeans, black slip-on pumps, a black tank top with a teal overshirt and a red floor-length coat with fur around the hood.
If you have any information on Michaela’s whereabouts, contact the local law enforcement or the Bellevue Police Department at (402) 292-3100.
