She was last seen getting into an older, possibly Chevrolet, red truck near William Avenue and Isabel Street at about 11:45 pm that night. Her friends reported that she was drunk and had intended to hail a cab to get home, but instead got in the red truck in an alley behind William Avenue with an unknown driver. According to authorities Amber lead a “high-risk lifestyle”, especially in her teens when she ran away many times. Her family contends that this behavior stopped for the most part once she reached adulthood.

Amber’s siblings are desperate to find her but have given up on the investigation.
