OGDEN — The LDS Church asked for the public’s help Tuesday in finding a 20-year-old sister missionary missing since Monday night.

Fellow missionaries and local police are looking for Sister Heeji Nada Kang, 20, of The Woodlands, Texas, who left her Ogden apartment between 9:30 and 10 p.m., Ogden Police Lt. Danielle Croyle said.

Kang was serving full time in the Utah Ogden Mission, according Eric Hawkins, spokesman for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“Sister Kang was last seen on Monday evening when she left on foot from her apartment in Ogden,” he said in a statement. “No foul play is suspected, but Sister Kang was emotionally distressed when she was last seen. The Ogden police were notified Monday evening. We pray she is safe and will be found quickly.”

Police, missionaries and LDS Church security personnel were actively looking Tuesday for Kang, Croyle and Hawkins said.

“She was upset,” Croyle said. “Our real concern is to make sure that she’s OK.”

Anyone with information about Kang’s location is asked to call Ogden police detective Larry Lewis at 801-629-8438 or Ogden dispatch at 801-395-8221.
