A missing Omaha girl may have been spotted at a Council Bluffs gas station in the early morning hours of New Year’s Day.
Authorities received a report of a suspicious vehicle with several occupants at the Shell Speedee Mart located at 3624 Ninth Ave. around 2:30 a.m. on Sunday.
An employee informed the responding officer that a girl who resembled 12-year-old Amber Harris, who has been missing since Nov. 29, 2005, had gotten out of a brown van and was “slightly forced” back inside. Another passenger in the van came into the store and removed a missing poster of Harris from the bulletin board and took it back to the van.
Due to a lack of evidence of foul play Harris has been listed as a possible runaway.
Because of a lack of evidence of foul play, Harris has been listed as a possible runaway, according to www.crimelibrary.com, a missing children’s Web site. However, Harris’ parents, Michael and Melissa Harris, have said they firmly believe she has been abducted. The child is considered to be missing and endangered.
Friends and family of the missing girl are now offering a $2,000 reward for her safe return.
Anyone with information on her whereabouts and/or this case is urged to immediately contact the Omaha Police Department at (402) 444-5600.
