PROVO, Utah – Officials have increased the reward to $15,000 for information on the whereabouts of missing Provo woman, 26-year-old Elizabeth Elena Laguna Salgado.

Provo police said a private donor and a local company have chipped in to raise the reward from the $5,000 offered earlier this week.

Salgado went missing April 16 after leaving the Nomen Global School in Provo at 384 W. Center St.

Up to this point, Salgado’s family said they feel optimistic she is alive.

Volunteers have searched several areas in Utah County.

Crews also used a drone to search the area around Utah Lake.

Elizabeth Salgado is described as 5 feet 4 inches tall. She was last seen wearing a denim jacket, blue jeans, black or brown knee-high boots and carrying a denim handbag with red straps.

Officers are asking anyone with information to call the Provo Police Dept. at (801) 852-6210.
