TEMPE, AZ (CBS5) -

A Tempe teen missing since June 15 packed a small bag and left her apartment after she got into an argument with her on-and-off again boyfriend during a party, a newly released police report stated. 

Adrienne Salinas, 19, has not been seen or heard from since. 

During a police interview, the boyfriend, Francisco Arteaga, said Salinas got upset with him because he was talking with other people and was "not paying enough attention to her," the report said.

Salinas told him to leave and when he went out to his car, she followed him, got inside and told him to take her to his house in Scottsdale, officers said.

Arteaga said they continued to argue about their relationship, even when they arrived at his house, police said. Arteaga said during their argument inside the house, he stepped out to get some air and when he came back, Salinas was gone, police said.

Arteaga said he found Salinas walking toward Indian School Road and told her he would take her home. As he drove her back toward her apartment, he stopped at a red light at Fifth Street and Mill Avenue when Salinas opened the door, climbed out and started walking again.

The police report said Arteaga realized Salinas had left her cell phone on the seat of the car, so he got out to give her back the phone and allowed her to keep walking toward her apartment alone.

Arteaga told police he found 11 missed calls from Salinas between 4:10 a.m. and 4:17 a.m., including a text message that stated "I'm coming over," sent at 4:43 a.m., but she never did.

Police said surveillance video from O'Reilly Auto Parts at 1002 W. University showed a slender woman walking through the west parking lot of the store at 4:52 a.m. A dark four-door vehicle is also seen heading northbound through the same parking lot two minutes later, according to the police report.

If you have any information that could help in the search for Salinas, call Tempe police at 480-350-8311 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.

A $10,000 reward is being offered for her safe return.
