The Grand Junction Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating 27-year-old Andrea Thinelk. Thinelk was last seen at the Walmart on North Ave. on January 31. She is an American Indian woman, 5-feet 8-inches tall, weighing 190 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
During her last conversation with her roommate, Thinelk said she was going to purchase bus tickets for her and her daughter to go to South Dakota. We know she made it to Walmart on North Ave. where she cashed a check, but we do not know what happened to her after that. Friends and family say the fact that she left her young daughter with her roommate for this long without telling the roommate where she is is also very suspicious.
If you have seen Andrea Thinelk recently, or have any information about where she might be, please call the Grand Junction Police Department at 970-242-6707.
