The Grand Junction Police Department are asking for your help in locating a missing Grand Junction woman.

27-year-old Andrea Thinelk was last seen at the Walmart on North Ave. on January 31. Thinelk is an American Indian woman, 5-feet 8-inches, 190 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

Thinelk last had a conversation with her roommate saying she was going to buy bus tickets for her and her daughter to go to South Dakota.

It has been verified she made it to Walmart where she cashed a check, that was her last known location.

Friends and family say the fact that she left her young daughter with her roommate for this long without telling her roommate where she was is very suspicious.

If you have seen Andrea Thinelk recently or have any information of her whereabouts please contact the Grand Junction Police Department at 970.242.6707.
