TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and Tempe police joined forces in hopes of finding a 19-year-old woman who has been missing since June 15.

They searched Tempe Town Lake and areas close to where her car was found.

“No solid leads at this point, i know that the City of Tempe law enforcement is using every resource they have available,” said Rick Salinas, whose daughter Adrienne is the one who went missing. 

She disappeared after drinking at a Tempe party. Her car was found two blocks from her home near Hardy and University with two flat tires.

Her cellphone records show that her last outgoing call was to a cab company at 5:05 in the morning.

The cab driver told police he couldn't find her.

“I'm devastated, kind of numb at this point, but I know I have to keep moving forward, keep driving forward and do anything I can to help bring her back,” said Salinas.

Saturday afternoon, Adrienne’s friends and family passed out fliers and washed cars hoping it will help find her.

“To help raise money for a reward so that somebody feels it in their heart to let us know what's going on with Adrienne and hopefully we find her safely,” said family friend Tiffany Hernandez.

So far, the group has raised $8,000 to go towards that reward.

“If it was my daughter or my sister or my niece or somebody very close to me I would expect somebody would do the same for me,” said Hernandez.

If you know anything about what happened to Adrienne, you're urged to call the Tempe police or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
