Update: From the Columbia Police Department's Facebook page, "Elexis was safely located. Thanks to everyone who provided assistance on this!"

"I can confirm at this time that this is still an open case and Elexis Martin is still considered missing in our system."

This story has been updated to include new information on the case status from the Columbia Police Department, as well as a poster on the police department's Facebook page who is allegedly Elexis Martin.

The Columbia Police Department is looking for a missing 18-year-old woman last seen on Thursday, January 26, 2023, on North Garth Avenue.

Columbia Police says Elexis Martin, 18 years old, of Columbia, was last seen at 2:00 PM. Martin is 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs 225 lbs. She has blue eyes and medium-length brown hair. She was last seen wearing a pink and blue tie-dye hoodie and pink athletic pants.

Late last night, someone with the Facebook screen name Lexi Martin responded to the Columbia Police Department's Facebook post and asserted that she was Elexis Martin. The poster claimed she had talked to the Columbia Police Department and straightened everything out. Then later claimed she was out of pocket, not missing, and that she was safe and warm.

After seeing no updates from the Columbia Police Department on Facebook regarding the case, Townsquare Media Sedalia-Warrensburg reached out to the department to check the status of the case and received the following response from Columbia Police Department Public Information Specialist Christian Tabak.

Tabak says, "I can confirm at this time that this is still an open case and Elexis Martin is still considered missing in our system."

If you know the whereabouts of Elexis Martin or have seen her please call 911 or The Columbia Police Department at 573-874-7652.

The Abandoned Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Kansas City

Schlitterbahn's fourth waterpark, Schlitterbahn Kansas City, opened on July 15, 2009, on land that originally was home to the Wyandotte County Fairgrounds near Interstate 434. Grand plans for the waterpark included a resort with 1,000 hotel rooms, a sporting goods store, and an area of shops and restaurants.

Between the economy, a child's death on the Verrückt waterslide, and the coronavirus pandemic the waterpark never matched the success of Schlitterbahn's other waterparks in Texas. After the 2018 season, the park was never re-opened and was demolished for redevelopment about two years later.

Exploring the Abandoned visited the still-standing park in November 2020 and shot a video which you can see on Youtube.
