SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Police have followed leads in the case of missing 23-year-old woman to a home in the Fairpark area, where investigators were in the process of executing a search warrant.

There was a heavy police presence at the home on 550 North 1000 West for much of the evening.

Assistant Chief Tim Doubt provided an update on the case Wednesday night. He confirmed the search was in connection with the disappearance of University of Utah student Mackenzie Lueck.

Neighbors said police first came to the home around noon or 2 p.m.

“Obviously, we are treating this with a high degree or care and caution, as it is an open case – and given the nature of this case, we don’t want to make any mistakes,” said Assist. Chief Doubt.

Few details were provided about what police were looking for at the home, or what led them to the location.

“We’re putting a case together,” said Assist. Chief Doubt.

Police were seen going in and out of the house, and focusing efforts on a garage or shed at the back of the home.

It appeared that something may have been found at the home, but it was unclear if Mackenzie’s DNA had been found in the home.

“The search warrant is still ongoing and we haven’t got those results back,” said Assist. Chief Doubt.


No arrests have been made in the case.

Neighbors said the homeowner lived in the top floor and rented out the bottom floor as an AirBNB.

Investigators continued their request for tips from anyone with information about Lueck’s possible whereabouts.

“We will continue to follow leads until this is resolved,” said Doubt. “The tip line is still up and running, and we do need those tips to come in.”

People with tips should call the Salt Lake Police Department at 801-799-4420.
