ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – More than 2,000 miles from home, a woman traveling cross-country was forced out the vehicle she was in and left stranded in Gallup, New Mexico, according to family members of 27-year-old Sadie Knight.


It's been nearly a week since Knight’s family has heard from her on Oct. 14th.

“She was on a trip with somebody across the…they left from Maine and just headed out and he ended up leaving her in Gallup, New Mexico with no phone, no money,” said Carlie Knight, Sadie’s sister, in a phone interview with KOB. “Nobody has been able to contact her since, and she hasn't contacted anybody, any family or any friends.”

Carlie Knight said she wasn't sure who her sister was with or where she was headed, but knows Sadie didn't get there.

“We have filed a missing person's report,” Carlie Knight said. “They have been in contact with the Gallup Police Department and that's about as far as it's gotten. We've had one sighting of her – a couple of people in Gallup who said they saw her but didn't have any interaction with her.”

Carlie Knight said Sadie Knight has some undiagnosed mental health issues that make finding her crucial. She is described as being 5-feet-2-inches tall and weighing about 140 pounds, full of energy and friendly.

If you have any information, you’re urged to contact police.
