Lauren Elizabeth Arnett

CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WNDU) - A Silver Alert that was issued for Lauren Elizabeth Arnett, an 18-year-old who was missing from Delphi, was canceled after she was found safe.

Carroll County dispatch confirmed shortly before 7 p.m. Arnett was all right.

Information on where she was found was not immediately made available.


A Silver Alert has been issued for Lauren Elizabeth Arnett, an 18-year-old who is missing from Delphi.

Arnett is described as 5 feet, 11 inches tall and 175 pounds, with brown hair and green eyes. She was last seen wearing a red or maroon sock hat with black stripes, black sweatshirt, jeans and a pink purse.

She was driving a red 2001 Honda Accord with damage to the left fender and Indiana license plate BAW244.

Arnett was last seen on Tuesday. She is believed to be in extreme danger and may require medical assistance, although police said they have heard through third-party sources she is aware that a Silver Alert was issued for her.

Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby said it would appear Arnett's disappearance is totally unrelated to the double slaying of Libby German and Abby Williams three years ago.

“[We] don't think it has any ties whatsoever to our ongoing bigger investigation,” Leazenby said in a phone call with 16 News Now Friday evening.

The sheriff said there is some evidence that Arnett frequents the Lafayette area.
