(Salt Lake City, KSL News) -- Authorities in Washington state say they've received no solid leads after distributing 1,000 fliers concerning Elizabeth Smart this weekend.

The King County sheriff's office put out the fliers Saturday morning after an anonymous note was found in a convenience store parking lot.

Officers say the note appeared to have been written by someone about 12 or 13 years old claiming to be Elizabeth's friend.

The writer said that Smart is alive and well and living in the Kingsgate area. The sheriff's department says it considers that highly improbable, but even the possibility warranted putting out fliers.
