The Gove County Sheriff's office has issued an attempt to locate notification for a 23-year old Quinter woman last reported seen Friday morning.

"We're just putting out an attempt to locate to check welfare," said Gove County Sheriff Allen Weber.

Amanda Haugen last was seen by her boyfriend at her Quinter home Friday morning. She is 5 foot, 3 inches tall and weighs 105 pounds and drives a white Pontiac Grand Am with Gove County license plates.

Prompted by information that Haugen had friends in Washington County, law enforcement in that area questioned some of those individuals yesterday but had received no new information.

Weber said he planned to follow up with Haugen's boyfriend today to see if he has any other information or has received any contact from her.

"There's nothing to say that anything foul happened," Weber said. "Nothing was disturbed.

"Her dog and her were gone, plus her cellphone."
