AMERICAN FORK, Utah — Authorities are looking for a woman who was reported missing after she left a residential treatment center Sunday to go running and didn’t return.

According to the Utah County Sheriff’s Office, 24-year-old Jerika Ann Binks was last seen around 9 a.m. on February 18 at a residential treatment center located in the Utah County portion of American Fork.

The woman told her roommates she was going running but never returned, and all her personal belongings—except a cell phone—were left behind. The woman was reported missing to police Friday.

Jerika is described as a white female who stands 5-feet, 4-inches tall and weighs 120 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes.

Police say foul play has not been ruled out.
