 The Athens County Public Information Officer Network has issued a missing person alert.

Morgan is listed as 5 feet tall, 160 pounds with blond hair and brown eyes. She is described as wearing a black Adidas sweatshirt, jeans and brown suede boots.

There is no solid lead on Morgan's whereabouts but officers from the Hocking College Police Department  are working with Morgan's family to uncover where she might be, said Al Matthews, police chief.
