TEMPE, Ariz. -

The search continues for a missing 19-year-old Tempe woman who disappeared early Saturday morning. Monday night, Tempe police and MCSO searched Tempe Town Lake for Adrienne Salinas. 

"One of the things we want to rule out is any possibility of her being here in the lake," said Tempe Police Sgt. Mike Pooley. "We're checking the lake because it was so close to where she was last seen."

According to her mom, Adrienne was taking a psychology class at Gateway Community College. She was responsible, and close to her family, so when she didn't call her dad on Father's Day, family and friends immediately knew something was wrong and filed a police report.

Suzanne Coss spent Monday going door to door, passing out a missing person flier with her 19-year-old daughter's picture on it.

“She might be hurt, she can’t get to a phone, she can’t get help,” says Suzanne.

“She was upset and wanted to go talk to her boyfriend about it. Along the way there she hit a curb, her tires popped, she tried to come back home on the flats and made it to that side street right over there on Roosevelt and that’s the last of it,” says roommate Shaney Duggan.

Shaney Duggan was one of the last people to see Adrienne. It was around 4:30 a.m. Saturday. Duggan says her roommate was upset and on her way to see her boyfriend.

According to police, records indicate a text from the 19-year-old's cell phone to her boyfriend at 4:43 saying "coming over." At 5:07 the cell phone died. There was no further communication from Adrienne.

“Where is she? That’s what we are trying to find out, where is she, where are you, is she ok, is she hurt, did she eat, is she cold,” says Pam Coss, Adrienne’s aunt.

Her family is desperate for answers, hopeful someone saw something that will bring Adrienne home.

The white Buick LaSabre that Adrienne abandoned is in police custody. A spokesperson tells us there’s no sign foul play took place inside the car.

Detectives spoke with the missing teen’s boyfriend. They tell us he is cooperating and is not considered a suspect at this time. Tempe police also tell us they are looking into every possible scenario.

They began searching the lake about 4 p.m. Monday. Dive teams brought in a sonar system and are planning to search into the night.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Tempe Police.

    The school year in Newark is getting off to a rocky start. Classes start in less than two weeks and parents are still waiting in line for hours to find out where their kids are enrolled. The problem is being blamed on a glitch in the school's new online open enrollment system. To say mother of three Jennifer Caraballo is frustrated may be an understatement. She is one of hundreds of Newark parents desperately now trying to find a new school for her children.

    Heading into the U.S. Open, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray have won 36 of the past 38 Grand Slam titles, a stretch dating to the 2005 French Open. Nowadays, there seems to be a growing sense — or hope, maybe — among the best of the rest on the men's tennis tour that the quartet might be more vulnerable than ever.

    John Lennon's killer was denied release from prison in his eighth appearance before a parole board, New York corrections officials said Friday. The decision on Mark David Chapman by a three-member board came after a hearing Wednesday, the state Department of Corrections said. Chapman fired five shots on Dec. 8, 1980, outside the Dakota apartment house where Lennon lived on Manhattan's Upper West Side, hitting the ex-Beatle four times.
