EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. (KKTV) - UPDATE: The sheriff’s office is reporting Makayla was found and is safe.


Authorities are hoping for help from the public with locating a missing woman.

A photo of 18-year-old Makayla Washburn was shared by the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Monday afternoon. Washburn has been reported missing before. Authorities believe she could be in danger because she functions similarly to a 10-year-old.

She was last seen leaving her home in the 6800 block of Narrow Gauge road just to the southwest of Widefield Community park. It was about 10:52 in the morning when she left her home.

If seen, you’re asked to call 911.
