MADISON, Wis., July 3 (UPI) -- The family of a Wisconsin college coed missing for 10 days said after talking to police Tuesday they were more hopeful she will be found alive.

Kelly Nolan, a 22-year-old University of Wisconsin-Whitewater student, hasn't been seen since June 22 when she left some friends during a night out at Madison's bars. A sister talked to her by phone a few hours later but it's not known what they talked about, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

"We don't have any evidence of foul play," said Joel DeSpain, a Madison police spokesman.

The 5-foot-6, 125-pound woman has brown eyes and hair, and was last seen wearing a green, sleeveless scooped-neck shirt and blue jeans, police said.

Nolan's mother, Mary Jane Nolan, said police shared with her that made her more optimistic, WISC-TV reported.

"I won't share (the information) at this time based on the advice it could put a slow down on the investigation or turn it to another direction," Mary Jane Nolan said.

A reward fund was being set up to encourage people to come forward if they have any information.
