ASHLAND, Va. — Elizabeth Nicole Purvis, 17, has been missing since May 5. Ashland Police believe Purvis left home voluntarily, but police are concerned for her well-being.

“There is no foul play indicated and Ms. Purvis has communicated with law enforcement via telephone,” police said in the alert in which investigators asked for help finding the missing teenager.

Purvis was described as a 5’11” tall, 200-pound white female with brown hair and blue eyes. She has multiple facial piercings and gauged ears and is also known to wear wigs, police said. Anyone with information was asked to call (804) 730-6140 or (804) 798-1227.
