A 14-year-old girl from Albuquerque is still reported missing more than two weeks after police issued an Amber Alert for her.

Lacey DeWent was last seen on March 31 when she left for school, but police say she never arrived. DeWent is believed to be traveling with 26-year-old Robert Butler, a man she met online.

DeWent's mother, Jessica, told KOB on Wednesday that the family still hasn't heard from their daughter. Law enforcement officials told DeWent's father, Daniel, that they are tracking down leads. However, officials would not elaborate on what those leads were.

DeWent is 5'4" tall and has brown hair and hazel eyes. She has a birthmark behind her ear in her hairline.

The pair may be driving a blue Subaru XV Crosstrek or similar vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to contact 505-768-2450 or 1-877-765-8273.

Lacey DeWent, 14, is believed to be traveling with Robert Bulter, 26.
