COLUMBIA — Columbia police are looking for a missing woman who failed to show up at her Indiana home on Thursday.

Police are looking for 27-year-old Ye Won Lee after the MU student failed to meet her family Thursday in Indiana. When Lee didn’t arrive, her family traveled to Columbia and contacted police, who searched the student’s Whitegate Drive home on Saturday.

Police said there is no evidence of foul play but that Lee’s family is concerned about some of the items she left in her home.

“We don’t have any indication of foul play but we just wanted to get her name and information out there in case anyone knows where she is,” Sgt. Shelley Jones said.

Lee is described as an Asian American woman, 5-foot-3, 105 pounds, with a thin build, light-colored skin and shoulder-length black hair. She may be driving a four-door, 2002 silver Honda Civic with Indiana license plate JK2714, police said.

Anyone with information on Lee’s whereabouts is asked to call Columbia police or CrimeStoppers at 875-8477.
