UNDERHILL, Vt. (AP) — Vermont State Police detectives continued to search Thursday for a missing 18-year-old woman who was last seen leaving her Underhill home to go for a walk.

Leydi Lopez left her home on Poker Hill Road around 11:15 a.m. Wednesday. Her family reported her missing about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Police say investigators are considering all possibilities related to the missing-persons case.

Police say Lopez may have encountered an orange car that had slid off Poker Hill Road and a second vehicle, a dark-colored pickup truck, possibly a Chevrolet, with a cap and building material in the bed, that had stopped to help pull the orange car back onto the road.


Police working on the investigation include members of the Bureau of Criminal Investigations, Major Crime Unit, Field Force Division, search and rescue, a police K-9 unit and and the Unmanned Aircraft Systems Program.

She is just under 5 feet (1.5 meters) and weighs about 125 pounds (56.70 kilograms). She was last seen wearing a blue/green jacket with a hood, black leggings, orange socks, and white sneakers.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact the state police barracks in Williston.
