SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) - A search is underway in California for a 23-year-old college student from Rhode Island who has been missing for more than a week.

Authorities say Dianne Thacher’s family has not heard from her since Oct. 5, and reported her missing Oct. 11.

The South Kingstown woman is a student at Sierra Nevada College in Incline Village, Nevada. She was reportedly in the Santa Barbara area to meet friends and was last seen checking out of a motel on Oct. 6.

Police say her car was found abandoned with a flat tire and several parking tickets on the same day she was reported missing. Her cell phone has not been active since Oct. 6.

Police do not suspect foul play at this time, but consider her disappearance suspicious.
