Surveillance video offers few clues in case of missing Tempe teen

Posted: Updated:
TEMPE, AZ (CBS5) -

Police have released never-before-seen surveillance video from the gas station where a missing Tempe teen was supposed to meet a cab.

Nineteen-year-old Adrienne Salinas went missing near an apartment at 5th Street and Hardy, almost six weeks ago. The night she went missing, she and her roommates had a party, and Adrienne Salinas got into a fight with her boyfriend. She also crashed her car, so she called a cab to pick her up at a nearby AM/PM, but she never showed up.

Police still have no leads, but are hoping that changes after releasing this video. Meanwhile, Adrienne Salinas' father said he is not giving up on finding his daughter.

"It's an indescribable pain," said Rick Salinas. "It's hard to get through each day not knowing. It's the not knowing that's eating at me, not knowing if she's in pain, is she ok, is she safe."

And the surveillance video released by Tempe police doesn't offer many answers. The video shows the cab that was supposed to pick Adrienne Salinas up, arriving at the gas station around 5 o'clock, the morning of June 15th. The driver waits, and then drives off. But one of the missing pieces to this puzzle is Adrienne Salinas.

"Adrienne not being there at the AM/PM is obviously a big part of the mystery," said Tempe police sergeant Michael Pooley. He said they've interviewed hundreds of people, including Adrienne's boyfriend, whom she called 32 times in the span of 40 minutes, and the cab driver. But they're no closer to solving her disappearance.

"The cab driver has been very cooperative, we've compared his GPS location to his cell phone, and everything is consistent to his story at this time," Pooley said.

They're hoping someone recognizes themselves or a friend in the video, and will call in.

"You were out in that area around the time Adrienne went missing, and we just want to know what you saw in the area," Pooley said.

In a surveillance video, at a nearby auto shop, a Hispanic woman is walking around that time in the morning, but Rick Salinas said he went into the police station and looked at the video, and it was not Adrienne Salinas.

"I just pray everyday that she'll come home safely, so I can hold her again, and hear her voice and her laugh, I just miss her," Rick Salinas said.
