PROVO, Utah -- Elizabeth Elena Salgado, 26, went missing in Provo in April, and detectives just completed a search in her home state in Chiapas, Mexico.

Salgado was last seen on April 16 while walking near the Nomen Global Language Center, 384 West Center Street in Provo, and over the past several months her family and friends have organized searches, put up flyers, put together a cash reward and been extremely active on social media.

Meanwhile, police have chased down hundreds of tips and conducted dozens of interviews--even giving several polygraph tests. But officials still do not have any suspects or even solid leads.

Detectives worked with an FBI agent and two Mexican police officials in Mexico.

"We had family members, friends, people she went to church with: all these individuals we wanted to get in contact with to get a better picture of who Elena is, and more background--and part of that is because she was only here in the country for three weeks,” said Lt. Brandon Post of the Provo Police Department.

A $15,000 reward remains in place for information leading to Salgado being found, and Provo police say no matter how minor the information may seem, they would definitely like to hear about it.

Anyone with information is asked to call 801-852-6210.
