Police continue to search for Jenni-Lyn Watson, 20, who was last seen last Friday. Now, after tracing her last phone call, the police have switched their search to a wooded area.

Watson’s parents say that their fears are growing as the search continues. They also have said that Watson simply wandering off without telling anyone was highly “uncharacteristic.” Watson has returned home to her parent’s home in Liverpool, near Syracuse, New York, to visit for Thanksgiving.

Search where phone last used

Watson, who is a ballerina, apparently last used her mobile phone near a wooded area where searchers are now looking. The area is about two miles away from her home. The entire community of Liverpool has been shocked by this disappearance and many community members have been trying to help authorities search.

A vigil was held at Mercyhurst College in Erie, PA, where she is currently a junior and a dance major. Other neighbors and friends of her family have been handing out fliers. Also a website and Facebook page has been set up for people to post leads and information while they search.

According to local police they have already used sniffer dogs to search a large 200 acres of woods near Clay, which is an industrial area near Liverpool. The police also stated that they were not sure if Watson was still in possession of her mobile phone and did not release any further statements about her calling record.

The police also stated that they do not have a person of interest, yet, in the case.

Her family has stated that Watson was last seen last Friday. She had just returned home after completing finals at school. She had been seen Friday morning by her parents and 17-year-old sister. Her parents and sister went out for the day and when they came home, Watson as missing but had taken her phone with her. Her wallet and house keys, however, were still in the home.

Watson is described as having dirty blond hair and brown eyes. She is 5’2” tall and weighs about 100 pounds.
