Reigning USA National Miss Nebraska Michaela Wells has been reported missing according to a posting written Tuesday on the pageant's Facebook page.

"Yes, our daughter is missing," the message states. "She vanished while taking out the trash at 8:37 p.m. on Sunday. "She has now been missing for 39 hours. She is not dressed for the weather and her cell is still here at home. Her friends are in shock as some of them had just talked to her the afternoon before she vanished to make plans for the week."

The Bellevue, Neb. Police Department has entered her name into a database listing her as a missing juvenile, according to a report by WOWT, but she is not considered to be in any danger.

She is described as 5-foot-6, weighing 120 pounds and wearing a black tank top with a teal over-shirt and a red coat.

As of early Tuesday evening, Wells was not listed on the police department’s website as a missing person.

Wells described herself on a fundraising website as “a 15-year-old teenager” whose “passion in life is to help others.”

Noting that her brother, Kainen, suffers from food protein-induced entercolotitis syndrome, she said she is using her pageant title to bring more awareness to the disease.
