Have you seen this missing woman? Alexa, last seen in Las Vegas April 1 (UPDATED: Found.)

UPDATE: Alexa has been found. She is alive. Alexa's family thanks Boing Boing readers for their care, concern, and the tips they sent in. She's in custody. Out of respect for privacy & recovery, I'll leave it at that.—XJ

My friend Emily in Los Angeles shared with me that her stepsister has gone missing. I offered to help spread the word, in hopes that perhaps one of our readers in Las Vegas (or elsewhere) has seen Alexa Morgenroth.

Emily writes, "Alexa was an adorable and happy kid with a brilliant smile. She was a model with a masters from Columbia University. She had a zest for life and heroin stole it from her and her family. She left rehab on April 1st and has not been seen since. The girl she left rehab with is no longer alive."

"Please help us find Alexa. She is lost in Vegas. She has an infection in her arm that must be treated. She is a sweet soul with a devastating disease."

"Save Alexa. Spread the word. Do you have friends in vegas? Can they share this? Thank you."
