RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - With the holidays rolling through, the family of a central Kentucky teenager missing since June is hoping the day will come soon that they can be thankful that she's found.

Police have been trying to locate 19-year-old Brookelyn Farthing since the last confirmed sighting of her at a party on June 22 in Berea.

Her step-father, Randall Walker, told WLEX-TV in Lexington ( ) that family members continue to celebrate birthdays and holidays, but want someone to come forward with information about what happened to Farthing or where she is.

Farthing disappeared following a suspicious house fire in Berea. Authorities have searched more than 16,000 acres in three Kentucky counties for the teen.
