SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A 16-year-old Salt Lake City girl disappeared on her way to school on Wednesday, and investigators are seeking information on her whereabouts.

Savannah Louise Pinkerton was last seen waiting for the TRAX train on her way to Highland High School around 8:30 a.m.

She is about five feet, six inches tall with a slim build. She has straight brown hair, brown eyes and an olive complexion. She was wearing a black ski parka and jeans. She was carrying two black backpacks.

Peggy Faulkner of the Salt Lake County sheriff's office says there's no evidence of foul play. But the girl has never run away before and is not known to be a troublemaker.

"She's never done this before; she's not the runaway type," Faulkner said. Investigators were putting out the word that the girl had gone missing, but Faulkner said this case didn't meet the criteria for the state's new "Rachael Alert" system.

"At this point, there's nothing suspicious," Faulkner said.

Anyone who has seen Savannah Pinkerton is asked to call the sheriff's office at 743-7000.
