BOONVILLE, Ind. -- Officials and volunteers are searching for a missing Indiana mother last seen early Friday, according to police.

Kristy Kelley, 27, vanished around 1:30 Friday morning after leaving a VFW Post in Boonville, about 175 miles southwest of Indianapolis, according to police and the Evansville Courier Press.

She hasn't reported to work or been in touch with friends or family since she disappeared, according to a Warrick County Sheriff's Office statement. She's believed to be in a silver 2003 Nissan Xterra with an Indiana license plate SZF858.

Kelley was last seen wearing a white and black horizontal striped, sleeveless shirt, blue jean shorts and sandals.

Hundreds of volunteers have organized search parties in an effort to locate her, reports the paper.

Authorities say they have no evidence to suggest Kelley's case may be linked to the disappearance of a woman from Evansville, about 20 miles away, reports the Courier-Press.

Joelle Lockwood, 30, was reported missing last month. Lockwood is described as five feet, three inches tall and 125 pounds with brown eyes and brown hair. She may be driving a silver Chevy Malibu with Indiana license plate 211TYC.

There's no indication of foul play in either woman's disappearance, reports the paper.

Anyone with information should call the Warrick County Sheriff's Office at 812-897-6180.
