State police seek help to find missing Madison County woman

The Richmond post of Kentucky State Police asked for the public's help to locate a missing Madison County woman.

Brookelyn Farthing, 18, of the Big Hill section of southeastern Madison County was reported missing on June 22. She reportedly was last seen wearing a gray Madison County FFA T-shirt and denim shorts.

KSP asked that property owners in Estill, Jackson, Rockcastle and Madison counties check their properties for any sign of the missing woman. Particular attention should be paid to freshly turned earth and unusual smells, ditch lines and remote areas. If a property owner finds something unusual, police ask that they not disturb the site.

A search Friday of about 800 acres didn't turn up any signs of Farthing, said Trooper Paul Blanton, spokesman for the Richmond post.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact KSP at (859) 623-2404 or toll free at 1-800-222-5555, or text a tip at 67283.
