Amber Dubois missing one year

Today is the first anniversary of the disappearance of fourteen-year-old Amber Dubois. Nobody has much on her disappearance — she’s joined the ranks of kids who simply vanished into thin air. No indications of foul play, but no indications of a runaway either. No witnesses, no physical evidence, nothing at all.

The North County Times has done two anniversary articles: one about Amber’s mom and how she’s coping, and one about the rest of her family and her friends. From the sounds of it, Amber was a perfectly ordinary fourteen-year-old girl, maybe even more sheltered than most of them.

And now she’s gone. We can only hope she ran away, but it doesn’t look likely.

    Amber is a extended member of my family. If anyone knows anything, anywhere, please, PLEASE let someone know. She might be alive, somewhere, there were benefits for an ongoing search out in CA this past weekend. Everyone on here, if you know someone out in CA, please email them and ask them to keep a vigil. It could be the break the police need. She did really just vanish, almost no sightings, she could still be out there. Thank you so much!

    Oh, that last line in the article about her Mom… that hurts. Heartbreaking.

    And her cousin still calling her, hoping she’ll pick up.

    It’s the little details like that. Painful.

    Was Amber jogging in a known predator-infested neighborhood like Chelsea King mistakenly did?

      No, she was on her way to school.

    Not in a known predator-area I hope. If so, perhaps the parents need to be charged with a crime.

      I do not think it would constitute criminal negligence no matter what sort of neighborhood it was. Amber was fourteen, not four, and a person has got to learn how to get around by themselves.

      I was very independent as a child and I think young people are way too much shut up and protected these days.

    The mystery of what happened to her is over. I’m glad her parents have her back and the monster who did this to her is going to die in prison.

    A bit late in the day for this, but I thought I’d comment anyway.
