MADISONVILLE, Ky. (CBS/AP) As police continue their search for 19-year-old Jodi Powers, the family of the western Kentucky teen is hopeful she'll be found safely after being missing for a week.
Powers, of Earlington, was reported missing by her family on Aug. 30.
Her sister, Amy Powers, told the Madisonville Messenger that it's out of character for her to stay away from family.
