Police and family members still need your help to locate a teenager that disappeared almost three weeks ago. 14-year old Mackenzie Marken of Weston left her home early October 11th, and is still missing.
Marathon County Sheriff’s Deputy Matt Anderson says there was a report of Marken being seen October 16th by the school and at Mosinee’s River Park, but no other leads have come in.
Anderson told WAOW television it’s highly unusual for a teenager to be missing this long. “In my experience, we’re usually able to locate a missing person within maybe the same day or a couple of days. Two weeks is a long time.”
Mackenzie Marken is considered a runaway, and has not attended classes or contacted friends or family since the 11th. “Nowadays, in the world of social media and Internet, it’s very unusual that nobody’s heard from her.”
Investigators have talked to several people, done surveillance and they’ve asked other law enforcement agencies to keep an eye out for her.
If you have any information about the location of Mackenzie Marken, contact your nearest law enforcement agency or call Marathon County Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-877-409-8777. You can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward.
