Anchorage police are looking for an 18-year-old woman who was last seen working as a barista at a Midtown drive-through coffee stand Wednesday night.
APD spokesperson Lt. Dave Parker says Samantha Koenig was working at Common Grounds Espresso, at Tudor Road and Gambell Street, when she was last seen at 8 p.m. Police say she got off work at that time, but was not there when her boyfriend arrived to pick her up.
Her father, James Koenig, said over the phone Thursday that he believes his daughter was taken from her work place. He says everything seemed to be normal with his daughter who he had spoken with earlier in the evening. Koenig's father says it is not like her to take off.
Detectives are looking at surveillance video from the coffee stand and possibly nearby businesses.They say at this time, there is no evidence of foul play.
"At this time we're contacting her friends, family, all the people that know her, trying to find out if anyone saw her, if anyone heard from her," says Sgt. Slawomir Markiewicz.
Alaska court records show Koenig filed for a protective order against a man in November, but did not show up in court and the order was never issued.
Koenig stands 5 feet, 4 inches tall. She weighs 160 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information on Koenig’s whereabouts is asked to call APD at 786-8900.
