Volunteers search for missing San Diego teen
SAN DIEGO — Authorities are searching for a San Diego teen who failed to return from a run near a lake Thursday.
More than 1,000 volunteers gathered Sunday to help police and sheriff’s deputies look for 17-year-old Chelsea King, a high school senior.
Authorities say her BMW was found at a park near Lake Hodges and investigators are trying to determine if the disappearance is connected to a Dec. 27 assault on a woman in the same area.
Investigators are looking at King’s cell phone, which was found in her car, and her home computer for clues.
King, a member of the San Diego Symphony and a straight-A student, was reported missing by her parents when she didn’t come home from an after-school run.
