SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. -- The Pinal County Sheriff's Office is turning to the public for help finding a teen who has been missing for more than a week.

Ashley Davis, 17, was last seen on the evening of Jan. 11. She was walking home from a park in the area of Desert Honeysuckle Drive and Denim Trail (southwest of Bella Vista and Gantzel roads) at about 7 p.m.

According to PCSO spokesman Elias Johnson, Davis was with her brother at the park. She had gone home to get something and was supposed to meet back up with him at the park. She never made it home.

Investigators say Davis was supposed to report for military processing for delayed enlistment last week. Johnson said her mother told deputies there were no indications that Davis was unhappy with her decision to enlist and nothing to suggest she might run away.

Davis is a white female, 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighing 110 pounds. She has brown/hazel eyes and was last seen wearing white pants, a white tank top and a gray 3/4-sleeve shirt, along with a black jacket with a fur-lined hood and white Throwdown running shoes. She also had on an arrowhead necklace and dangly bracelets.

Davis' family says the teen does not have any issues with drugs or alcohol and no medical or psychological problems.

Johnson said there's no sign of foul play -- no sign of Davis, period -- but PCSO is erring on the side of caution and would like people to keep their eyes open.

If you know where Davis might be, call the Pinal County Sheriff's Office at 520-866-5111.
