Anchorage police are looking for a missing 18-year-old woman last seen at the Midtown coffee stand where she worked, police say.

Police believe Samantha Koenig locked up Common Grounds Espresso, outside the Midtown Alaska Club at 630 E. Tudor Road, about 8 p.m. Wednesday at the end of her shift. Koenig's family, her boyfriend and her employer have not heard from her since, said police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker.

Koenig's father reported her missing about 1 p.m. Thursday, Parker said. There was no indication of ongoing strife at home, he said.

Court records show Koenig filed for a protective order against a man in November but failed to show up at court. The order was not issued.

Koenig is described as 5 feet, 4 inches tall and about 160 pounds, with brown hair and eyes.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call 786-8900.
