Ashley Marie Doolittle, 18, of Berthoud, Colo., should have returned home at 7:30 p.m. on June 9—instead, 25 minutes later, her family reported her missing to the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO).

After a brief search in the local area, family members located her vehicle, unoccupied.

Deputies and investigators learned that Ashley recently ended a one-year relationship with 18-year-old Tanner George Flores, who hasn’t been heard from since 3:30 p.m. on the same day of Doolittle’s disappearance, according to a written statement by the LCSO.

“It was reported that Tanner was upset and distraught over the recent breakup,” the statement said. “Investigators also have information to believe Tanner may be armed with a handgun.”
