OREM -- Orem police are hoping you can help them find a 31-year-old woman who has been missing for a week. She told her family she was going camping and hasn't contacted them since.
Sarah Jensen loves the outdoors, camping and hiking. She's a dedicated mom to her 5-year-old son, and she's missing. "We just want her to call us and let us know she's OK," her father, Larry Jensen, said.
Memorial Day weekend, her family says Sarah was feeling depressed and told her boyfriend she was going camping. When she didn't return by Monday, her family called police.
"It's not like her to completely isolate herself from family and friends when she's down," Larry said.
"We were able to find out that she stayed at a hotel by Zion National Park, that she bought a Zion park pass, that she purchased some camping equipment," explained Orem police Sgt. Chris Gaines.
Police say she also withdrew cash, enough for a couple days' living expenses. She took her cell phone but not the charger.
Her family and investigators are anxiously that someone has seen that car, or Sarah, and that she's OK. It's information they want to pass along to her son.
"Just because she has not called about Aiden. That's my big concern, because he's the love of her life," said Sarah's mother, Nadine Jensen.
Sarah is 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs 115 pounds. She was last seen wearing jeans, a white shirt and a necklace with the letter S. She also has a tattoo of the sun on the middle of her upper back, a tattoo of a character on her stomach and Japanese writing on her lower back.
If you have any information, you're asked to contact the Orem Police Department at 801-229-7070.
