(CBS) - The Loudon County Sheriff's Office has started to turn to Facebook for clues to where missing, pregnant 21-year-old Bethany Anne Decker could possibly be, reports NBC Washington.

Decker was last seen Jan. 29, but wasn't reported missing until Feb. 19. Authorities say that Decker wasn't immediately reported missing because her Facebook account remained active for some time, according to the source.

Decker, a senior at George Mason University from Ashburn, Va., has a 17-month-old son and is believed to be 5 months pregnant.

Her husband, Emile Decker, 21, is currently serving with his army unit in Afghanistan, but arrangements are being made through the military to have an electronic face-to-face follow-up interview with Decker in the near future. Investigators have said Emile Decker has been cooperative.

Anyone with information on her disappearance is urged to call the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office at 703-777-0407.
