UPDATE: We are happy and relieved to report that Ivy Merck was found alive and has been reunited with her parents.
Two weeks ago, 24-year-old Ivy Merck made the 350-mile drive from where she lives in Athens, Georgia to Kingsland, Georgia. She was there supposedly to visit her family. Merck dropped her dog Huxley off at the veterinarian in Kingsland on August 23rd and said she would be back in a week. But no one saw Ivy again. Her father reported her missing five days later.
Ivy’s car was found in the parking lot of a strip mall in Deerfield Beach, Florida a week after she was last seen. Police say some of her belongings were inside. They are investigating several unconfirmed sightings of Ivy but so far none of these have turned up any solid new information.
Jane Velez-Mitchell had an exclusive interview with Ivy’s parents. If you have any information that could help find Ivy Merck please contact the Camden County Sheriff at 912-510-5115.
You can see the full interview with Ivy’s parents Friday night on Jane Velez-Mitchell at 7pm ET on HLN.
