Police searching for missing Madison County teenager
"Update: KSP Investigates If Suspicious Fire Linked To Missing Girl"
Story.jpgWhat Farthing left behind may be a clue.
"Some items that we believe she should've taken with her if she was leaving for any extended period," said Blanton
(A written report and video are included at the link)
In the ABC news story it says her cell phone is missing and parents said the phone is ringing but no one answers but they haven't been able to track it.. I don't understand how they haven't been able to track it? That should be a BIG priority right now for the police in that area, batteries don't last forever and the information on location is so important! Hoping she is found quickly and safely!

Is there a missing thread on her? I did not see one
There is a group page (2 actually) for her on FB with some pictures but not much else. I was hoping to find the name of the ex and/or the homeowner but there is nothing more there than we already know.
Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.
This video link gives the address where the fire occured and also
says something about the cause of fire was a lit cigarette, but I didn't
catch the date, so it might be an earlier report
113 Dillon Ct
Just read about this girl... Hope she's found safe.
Pinterest account (notice the URL name on the account--the recent ex, maybe?):
Picture looks like her, and "Brookelyn" with an "e" is a fairly distinctive way to spell the first name, so I think it likely belongs to the missing woman.
If you look at her Top 8 friends on MySpace, and then her friends on Facebook, I think it might be fairly easy to figure out the name of the recent ex-boyfriend (who seems legitimately distraught at her disappearance).
ETA: From his FB page, you can find one of the listed property owners on his Friends list. The property owner's listed job is...interesting. Not casting aspersions on anyone (as no one has been charged or even named as a person of interest, and I've read that the property owner has given voluntary statements to the police)...just making an observation that the listed property owner's occupation is interesting in light of a disappearance. (Not trying to be deliberately coy or obscure here...just not sure what/when/who we're allowed to name/sleuth.)

Moving this thread over here for discussion and sleuthing!
Hope held out for missing Madison County teen's safe return
http://www.wkyt.com/news/headlines/H...213251041.htmlThe family said there will be another vigil for Farthing at 8:30, Friday night, at the Pilot Knob Baptist Church, in Berea.
Sorry guys, I should have let you all know earlier. I did unapprove the topix info until I can find out if its allowed. I'll let you all know and reapprove if it is ok. Thanks!
I didn't see this article posted...
Brookelyn Farthing Missing: Police conduct interviews to try to find Ky. teen who disappeared over the weekend
Authorities said they were conducting interviews on Wednesday to try and find out more about the disappearance of 18-year-old Brookelyn Farthing, said CBS affiliate WKYT.
Police told the station that they are searching the central Kentucky neighborhood where Farthing was last seen before she went missing on Saturday morning after a house fire.
Reward Fund Established for Missing Teen
A reward fund has been set up by friends of missing Madison County teen Brookelyn Farthing in the hopes of bringing her home.
Hundreds Attend Vigil To Bring Brookelyn Farthing Home
It's been five days and no one has seen or heard from Brookelyn Farthing. The 18-year-old's family and friends turned to prayer as the search for her continues.
As storms rolled in to Madison County, the gray sky reflected the mood at Lake Reba Park. Tasha Thomas is anxious like everyone else, anguished over wondering where her younger sister is.
"It's been five days now, and we're lost. We're just at the point that you wake up in the morning and it takes you a minute to say it's another day," says Tasha.
"New Search Underway For Missing Teen in Madison County"
Maybe someone local can describe the new area (such as how far it is from the Dillon Court address)?On Friday, investigators began searching a large area of land off of Floyd Branch Road near Red Lick Road just outside Berea.
They originally thought she'd last been seen in the Dillon Court area of Berea, but now say the Floyd Branch Road area is the last place she'd been before she disappeared.
Also, some of the news articles have mentioned that her personal belongings (purse and suitcases) were left behind in the Dillon Court house. But nothing has really said why she'd have suitcases there. A purse I understand, but suitcases? Personally, at 18 years old, I would not have wanted to stay in a house with no electricity during a humid KY summer. (Wouldn't want to do that now, either--my hair frizzes just thinking about it.) Had she moved out of her folks' house and into the Dillon Court house because of a conflict with her parents? Or was she getting ready to travel somewhere for a post-graduation trip? I'm assuming the suitcases were packed, since there's been mention of "leaving her belongings behind"...but maybe they were empty, and she was just lending them to the house owner to use as he moved out? (Although if that's the case, why bring up the suitcases at all?)
Her social media pages (especially the Pinterest page) have a whole lot about wedding and baby stuff, as if she'd been counting on marriage and starting a family in the very near future, as the next step after graduating from HS. And none of the news articles or FB postings have mentioned anything about any plans for college (as in, "We don't think she would have run away, because she was excited about starting at EKU in the fall," etc.), or starting a new job. If her long-term relationship had recently broken up--and with it, her "next step" plans--I wonder if she could have been feeling directionless, and maybe decided to just get away and figure out what to do next. I don't think that's what happened, unfortunately (especially without her purse and suitcases), but I hope that it is.
Yes, she had moved into the house, the owner is facing foreclosure and has to move out. I guess that's why her bags were packed. I don't konw what the relationship with the owner is, but her BF is a different person.I don;t think she left on her own with no car, it is too rural, a long walk and no one else is missing around here.
Hey everyone! I'm new here and have been lurking for awhile. I'm wondering how investigators can't track her cell phone at all?
I'm thinking the cell phone may not have GPS. A smart-phone type would, but a basic phone would not. Another thought is that the GPS may be turned off. When I am in a rural area my phone burns a lot of battery while it tries to utilize the GPS, so I turn it off....
A run-away may leave on purpose, but that doesn't mean that they are able to get back home.... Never stop searching.
