Deputies are asking for the public’s help in locating a missing Golden Gate Estates teenager.
Deputies say 18-year-old Emily Austin was last seen by her parents around 11 p.m. Sunday at their residence on 27th Avenue Northeast, near Desoto Boulevard. Emily was not home when her parents woke up around 7:30 a.m. Monday, which is unusual, deputies said.
Deputies said Emily is described as white, 4 foot 3 inches tall and 89 pounds with long brown hair and hazel eyes. Emily is mentally handicapped. She does not have a cell phone.
Anyone with information about Emily’s whereabouts is asked to call the Collier County Sheriff’s Office at 239.252.9300.
