Madison Bell left her Highland County home Sunday morning to go to a tanning salon. According to police, it's unlikely she ever made it there. The 18-year-old's car and cell phone have been found by police, but Bell herself remained missing by Monday evening.

Officials said the car was found at the Good Shepherd Church in Greenfield, near the tanning business Bell had planned on visiting.

Multiple law enforcement agencies are investigating her disappearance: The Highland County Sheriff's Office, the Ross County Sheriff's Office, the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations and the Greenfield Police Department.

Bell has brown hair, brown eyes, stands roughly 5-feet-6-inches tall and weighs around 120-125 pounds.

Police said she has a cross tattoo on her neck and a ghost tattoo on her side.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts should call the Highland County Sheriff's Office at 937-393-1421.
