SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) – Salt Lake City police executed a search warrant in connection with a missing University of Utah student.

Investigators converged on a house near 550 North 1000 West in the Fairpark neighborhood Wednesday.

Mackenzie Lueck, 23, was reported missing on June 20. Police said on June 17, she texted her parents she had landed safely, took a Lyft from the Salt Lake City airport and hasn’t been heard from since.

Investigators tracked Lueck’s movements to North Salt Lake. Police confirmed her Lyft driver dropped her off at Hatch Park around 3 a.m.

There, police said, she got into another vehicle. Police don’t know the make or model of the vehicle she got into or if the driver was a woman or man.

Police looked to surveillance footage at the park only to find out the cameras weren’t working cameras.

At least a dozen officers could be seen walking around a home that was cordoned off by police tape Wednesday night. An SLCPD mobile command unit was also parked outside the home. Neighbors reported the police had been there for much of the day.

SLCPD Assistant Chief Tim Doubt said they are treating the investigation with a “high-degree of care and caution” because it still an open case.

“We will continue to follow leads until this is resolved,”
