Volunteers continue search for missing Port Alberni woman Amber Manthorne

The missing posters for Amber Manthorne are starting to fade, but the drive of volunteers trying to find her has not.

On Saturday, friends, family and complete strangers spent the day in Port Alberni and Nanaimo searching for any sign of the 40-year-old woman, who has been missing for more than two weeks now.

“Some people can’t stop searching,” said Kristie St. Claire, friend and search organizer.

Manthorne, a bubbly and happy woman, was last seen at her Great Central Lake cabin on July 7 — reportedly telling a friend she was about to meet with her ex-boyfriend Justin Hall.

The 40-year-old was reported missing the next day when she didn’t show up for work. Her white Jeep Compass was later found on a logging road south of Nanaimo, more than 100 kilometres away from the cabin.

Originally Hall disappeared but surfaced days later and was interviewed by RCMP and told CHEK News he had nothing to do with her disappearance.

“I did not hurt my girlfriend. I do not know why she isn’t back home. After our argument, I panicked, and I just wanted to get away from everyone,” he wrote in an e-mail to CHEK News.
