FAIRFIELD, OH (FOX19) -

Police have released the 911 call that Katelyn Markham's fiancee placed to report her missing.

Markham, 22, of Fairfield, has been missing since Saturday when she didn't show up for work.

The community has been scouring the neighborhood every day near her town home since her disappearance, and still, police are not indicating any evidence of foul play.

Markham's fiancee, John Carter, called police on Sunday, Aug. 14 to report her missing.

"I know you're not suppose to report a missing person before 24 hours, but my fiancee is missing and I can't find her anywhere," he said in the call.

Carter last saw Markham on Saturday night. He says they were discussing a possible move to Colorado.

"We were planning on going in October and then we pushed back the date to November," he said. "We could have pushed the date back a year and it would not have mattered. I didn't want to make her do anything she didn't want to do, and she did not feel like she was being forced into anything."

When asked what he meant by "forced," Carter said, "Just going to Colorado, the marriage, the whole thing. It was entirely up to her."

Carter also said in his 911 call, "A Sacred Heart Festival is going on right up the street, and there are a lot of questionable people there."

Carter explained that statement to FOX19, saying, "I don't think it draws shady, sketchy people, but there were so many people there you don't know everybody's intentions there."

Fairfield Police say they have not ruled out anything in the case, and that Katelyn's disappearance is still very much a mystery.

A prayer vigil will be held for Markham on Friday at 7 p.m. at the Fairfield West Baptist Church at 5345 Muskopf Road. The prayer vigil will be open to the general public.

Markham is 5'3" and 130 pounds with green eyes and brown hair with blonde highlights. If you see her, call police or 911 immediately.
