SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, June 21, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Police in Salt Lake City are asking for the public’s help in finding a missing University of Utah student.

Mackenzie Lueck, 23, last communicated with family members about 1 a.m. Monday after arriving at Salt Lake City International Airport on a flight from California. She reportedly sent a text saying she was taking a Lyft ride home and has not been heard from since.

SLCPD told Gephardt Daily they were notified of Lueck’s disappearance Thursday and confirmed she was seen leaving the airport via Lyft.

On Friday, Lyft released a statement saying they were cooperating with police.

“We recognize how scary this must be for those who know and love Ms. Lueck. The safety of our community is fundamental to Lyft and we are actively assisting law enforcement with their investigation.”

Lyft added that the route contained no irregularities and ended at the destination as originally entered by the rider, and the driver continued providing rides immediately after the ride ended.

Lueck is described as being 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing 120 pounds. She has medium-length blond hair and brown eyes.

Anyone who has seen Mackenzie Lueck or who has any information as to her whereabouts is asked to call Salt Lake City PD at 801-799-3000.
