Kentucky State Police said Friday they're starting the search for a missing Madison County teen again.

Brookelyn Farthing, 18, was last seen Saturday, June 22nd in Berea. Since then, several searches have come and gone...with no new leads.

Troopers wouldn't give details, but did say their next attempt would be a ground search on private property sometime in the near future.

"We're not wanting to release the exact location or even the date just because we don't want any evidence or anything that's out there--we'd rather find it ourselves," said Trooper Paul Blanton, Public Information Officer for Kentucky State Police's Richmond Post.

At Lords and Lady's Hair Studio in Berea, word's already got around--Farthing is a hot topic.

"Everybody's just...they ask a lot of questions, you know," said hair stylist Mary Abney. She referred to a row of t-shirts on the wall that bear the missing teen's face, "They see the shirts and...we have a lot of people come from out of town. And they'll be like, 'Is that the little girl that's missing?"

State police said Farthing's is still a missing person's case, but asked that those in Madison, Estill, Rockcastle, and Jackson Counties check areas they haven't been to recently.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of the missing teen, call state police at (859) 623-2404, or toll-free at (800) 222-5555.
