VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – Police confirm they have found the vehicle of a missing 19-year-old.

According to Virginia Beach Police, Ashanti Billie’s Mini Cooper was located Saturday, though she is still missing.

Billie was last seen around 4 a.m. Monday, September 18 in the 4400 block of Bonney Road at the Midtown at Town Center Apartments.

Billie never arrived for work near Shore Drive and Little Creek Road. She also did not attend her scheduled college classes near Town Center.

She is 4’11” tall and weighs approximately 133 pounds.

Police said Billie is being considered a missing person under suspicious circumstances due to the uncharacteristic behavior of her not showing up to work or school.

Her dad, Meltony Billie, told News 3 her cell phone was found in a dumpster.

He also said she moved to the area in August to go to culinary school and to follow her dream.

“We’d like for our daughter to come home safely. I say this, I don’t wish this on no one as far as having a child come missing,” her father said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Virginia Beach Police investigators at (757) 385-5000 or the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
