Lubbock's First Amber Alert

"Joanna Kathryn Rogers was last seen May 4th," said Lubbock County Sheriff David Gutierrez.

Combing through fields, looking under cars, knocking on doors. The search for 16-year-old Joanna Rogers has involved some 30 sheriff's deputies, dozens of volunteers, and two very worried parents.

"We miss you and we want you home," said Joe and Kathy Rogers. They last saw their daughter when she wished them goodnight four days ago. The next morning she was gone, leaving behind car keys, i.d., her wallet, red flags to authorities.

"The fact that she left all her personal items is of major concern for us, leading us to believe that she had no intention of leaving for good," said Gutierrez.

"We miss her," said Daisy Duede, Joanna's former sister-in-law, helping to coordinate the disbursement of 10,000 flyers and searching through fields with police. "What are you looking for in the fields?," asked NewsChannel 11. "Well, we don't exactly know. Just anything unusual that shouldn't be out there or might have something to do with Joanna or her location," said Duede.

Authorities say foul play is not in the picture, but so far, neither is Joanna. "How long do you keep looking?," we asked. "I guess until we find her," smiled Duede.
