The friends and family of a missing former teacher continued their search in Washington state Thursday.

Connie Koch, 62, of Lake Stevens disappeared one week ago.

The only clue is a text message that said "Look at Stevens Pass."

She reportedly may have been headed for Leavenworth, Wash. Relatives were searching along Highway 2 up to Wenatchee.

Koch is a former teacher who was preparing to fly to Dallas for treatment of hypersensitivity to chemical smells.

She left her bags and medication at home.

The family is asking people to look for her white 2005 Toyota Corolla, Washington license 971VOL.
