Authorities in Glendale say the disappearance of 22-year-old Nancy Salas is "suspicious," and today are going to expand their search for the UCLA student who went out for a jog in Glendale yesterday morning and did not return, according to the SGV Tribune.The police will be looking at Salas' computer and cellphone records for clues, while searchers will continue to attempt to trace her whereabouts on the ground, and with the aid of "helicopters, bloodhounds and heat-seeking devices" in the "rugged terrain in Chevy Chase Canyon" where the student typically jogged daily, according to LA Now.

"Bloodhounds briefly picked up a scent Wednesday but were unable to find Salas," who had left the house on Eleanore Drive (map) at 6:30 a.m. without her keys or cellphone.

Salas' family is already concerned their daughter is the victim of foul play, and say "it was not like Salas to disappear." She was last seen "wearing a yellow jacket, dark pants, white T-shirt and white sneakers. She is about 5 feet tall and weighs about 115 pounds."

Anyone with information is asked to call Glendale police at (818) 548-4911.
