Her family and friends spoke with 44News earlier today about the heart break they're experiencing.

"This is not fair that you're missing, please let us know you're okay," says her friend Caitlin Rice. House-Dispenza's phone has been turned off, and she does not drive, her family believes she could be with someone. "To whoever has her, allow her a phone. Allow her to call her family, allow her to call her mother."

Hope Haylee Patrice House-Dispenza Is around 5"5, and weighs around 100 pounds. She has Dark Hair and Blue eyes.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
