Mother of three Brooke Allensworth was reported missing last week. Her family said she hasn’t been heard from or seen in three weeks.
According to KARK 4, Allensworth’s father said that she was at a local salon getting her nails and hair done the day before she went missing.KARK 4
However, her father didn’t file an official missing person’s report with Searcy Police until Thursday, July 26.
Three weeks after Allensworth was last seen and just one day after she was officially reported missing, Allensworth’s vehicle was found near a boat ramp under an overpass in Independence County, Arkansas. The vehicle had a flat tire.

Police said the vehicle appeared to have been abandoned for quite some time. Sheriff Shawn Stephens told KARK 4:
“It looks like she broke down had a flat tire. Then someone come through and she left.”
Allensworth’s older sister, Kelly Avants, told KARK 4 that she has been trying to remain positive and hopeful over the last three weeks, but it is “killing her” that she can’t bring her little sister home. She said:
“Brooke we need you to come home. You’re that missing link. … I’m the one that’s suppose to be protecting her and it’s killing me.”
“I know that in my heart she would not hurt herself. And she has never gone this long without having contact.”
Authorities said that they cannot rule out foul play at this time.
Brooke Allensworth is a 37 year old, mother of three. Last seen in the Newark/Oil Trough Area. Her vehicle was found abandoned near the White River in Oil Trough.
