Police are looking for a 16-year-old girl who disappeared in North Ogden almost two weeks ago.
The teenager ran away from home last year, but she told her family that she was running away and returned within a few days.
Miera has been trying to call and track her daughter's cell phone, but it has been dead since she disappeared, Miera said.
Police have no reason to suspect the residents of the home, said North Ogden Detective Paul Rhoades.

Poor girl has been gone for two weeks.
Kind of strange that she was babysitting somewhere and then just disappears. Hope she's found soon and safe.
Missing page on Facebook says they are still searching for Alexis. I hope she is found safe and there is no foul play involved.
You are the anchor to my soul, you won't let go ...
I hope shes safe.. two weeks is a long time, come home dear!

NORTH OGDEN, Utah (ABC 4 News) – A North Ogden teen has been missing now for 18 days. It’s almost as if Alexis Rasmussen just vanished.
I think I'm missing something. What time I wonder did she go T9 babysitter and how old is the child or children she was sitting for? The fact that her mother said she texted her at 1130 to say it was ok to spend the night implies the parents of the child or children were coming home that night. Was she there when they got home?
T9 babysitter?? To babysit. Darn phone...lol!
North Ogden police are also still looking for Alexis Rasmussen, 16, who disappeared three weeks ago. She was last seen the night of Sept. 10 at a friend’s house.
3 weeks...Strange that another girl from the same school was missing for a few days. Seems she was a runaway. Found safe, btw...
It's sad what a "runaway" tag will do to media coverage. Hope she's found soon.
I was actually just up in N. Ogden yesterday..didn't see ANY flyers, anything about Alexis. Maybe I'll post some next time I'm there.
Praying Alexis is safe.
http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=17518169With no car, money or clothes, Jacobson says her friend wouldn't have runaway. "I'm really trying to stay positive and just tell myself that she's going to come home, but I fear the worst, and I think we all do," she said.
I still don't know why a 16 year old girl is walking home by herself at midnight after a babysitting job...Who would even think that was okay? Ugh...
I would also like to know how they know that she was seen at the Walgreens at 10:30. Someone she knew, a random person?? Do they have her on surveillance camera??
How far away was the home she was sitting at from hers? What time did the couple get home? What time did she leave? Etc...
So many questions...
She was supposedly spotted at Walgreens at 10:30PM, but allegedly left the babysitters house around midnight? And why didn't they give her a ride home? Did she live close by or indicate someone was picking her up? Did she have a cell phone?
Here is a link to a Facebook page set up for her. Going to go catch up on reading it.
So back on 9-27 Bri Jacobson (the best friend interviewed in the above linked KSL article) posted that Alexis was last seen by the people she babysat for at an Ogden Walgreens. Did the babysitters drop her off?
9-22 post. Phone has been tracked. has been turned off after she texted her mother.

There are definitely alot of unanswered questions in this case. In an facebook post, someone had suggested getting Alexis' cell phone records to see if she had made any calls or texts and the response was that they had and that her cell phone has been off since that night. Has anyone looked into who she may have been talking to or texting while she was babysitting and questioned them. If she was babysitting in North Ogden, but was at the Layton Walgreens, how did she get there? I live very close to this particular Walgreen's and that would be a good 15-20 mile walk from North Ogden. Also, where is the surveillance video from the Walgreen's?
Welcome to WebSleuths, Fettpi! I'm from Utah as well. Great to have you here.
I have a lot of questions about this. I heard about her disappearance labeled a "runaway" a couple of weeks ago. I didn't hear anything again until yesterday's article - and I am also in Utah. I hate it when they do not take "runaway" status as something that should be reported on. If this girl's face had been on every station, and IF she is a runaway, then wouldn't it be more likely that someone would see her?!!
Have they even checked the video surveillance? Sometimes police will not even look at surveillance if it is just a case of a runaway.

Yes, kids do sometimes runaway. They can be impulsive and make poor decisions. That's why it is up to the adults in the community as well as the authorities to take care of them and find them.
I hope this sweet girl comes home soon regardless of how she left.
So, Alexis was babysitting on Saturday, September 10.
1. Was she babysitting in Layton or North Ogden?
2. What time did the parents get home and what time did they say that Alexis left?
3. Did they say that she left on foot or did someone come and get her?
4. What time was she seen at the Walgreen's in Layton and who saw her and was she with anyone else?
5. Have Law Enforcement been able to obtain video surveillance from Walgreen's to confirm the sighting?
Also, Someone posted that there are some kids that saw her at a party in Layton. Who are these kids that saw her and when did this party happen?
Again, someone out there knows something.
