ROYAL LAKES, IL – Macoupin County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for 37-year-old Denita Hedden from Royal Lakes Illinois.

Hedden was reported missing by her roommate and initially was thought to have been last seen on Saturday.

Macoupin County Sheriff Shawn Kahl said after talking to more people they now think she may have been missing since Thursday. Kahl said Hedden’s birthday was Thursday and her roommate told investigators that she was going out to celebrate.

Kahl said Hedden borrowed her roommate’s truck Thursday night. The truck returned back to the house sometime late Thursday or early Friday but Hedden did not.

Kahl said this is all very odd because Hedden talks to her family every day and no one has heard from her.

Her family said her roommate is actually her fiancé and they are hoping for some answers soon.

If you have any information on Denita Hedden’s whereabouts or have seen her, please contact the Macoupin County Sheriff’s Office at 217-854-3135 Ex. 1 or Macoupin and Montgomery County Crime Stoppers at 800-352-0136 or text a tip to CRIMES (274637).
