ATLANTA (AP) -- Police are looking into the disappearance of a Clark Atlanta University student who has been missing for about a week.

Chasity Nicole Lewis, 22, was supposed to have flown home to San Francisco for the summer last Tuesday. But she didn't make the flight that day, said her mother, Theresa Lewis.

Theresa Lewis called a friend who lives in the area to go to her daughter's rented house near Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and then to police, who found the house locked. With the landlord out of town, a cousin, David Whatley, was persuaded to climb through a window into the house last Tuesday.

Theresa Lewis said all of Chasity Lewis' things were found inside, including her ATM card, keys, cell phone and her purse. The bed was unmade, the air conditioner was on and a fan was running. Also, her dog was outside the fence.

"It looked like she just vanished," said Whatley, who had had lunch with Chasity Lewis the day before. "I looked the whole house over and nobody was there."

A missing persons report was filed Saturday. Atlanta police spokesman Sgt. John Quigley said that what got their attention is that Chasity Lewis bought a ticket to fly home.

"That's a reason to be concerned," Quigley said.

Theresa Lewis said she last spoke to her daughter June 22 but that she sounded "down, not her bubbly self." After that, calls to her daughter were not answered.

Theresa Lewis said she has also called nearly every number in her daughter's cell phone directory but no one has seen her.

"I don't know if she snapped or lost her mind or where she is," Theresa Lewis said. "Something has happened. It was unlike her not to communicate. We talk every day."
