14 Year Old Amber LeeAnne DuBois Missing Since February 13, 2009 in Escondido, CA … Runaway, Abduction?

14 year old Amber LeeAnne DuBois has been missing since the morning of Friday, February 13, 2009. She was last seen at approximately 7:10 am walking to Escondido High School, Escondido, CA. There had been a report of a sighting of Amber; however, Sgt. Aaron Heath said that police had not been able to confirm a report that the girl had been seen walking near Palomar Medical Center with two other teens Saturday.

The search for a missing 14 year old Amber LeeAnne DuBois was called off as it entered its sixth day.

Investigators have learned that DuBois talked to a friend on her cell phone on her way to class that morning, San Diego radio station KFMB reported.

Witnesses claimed to have spotted her in downtown Escondido Saturday and Sunday nights.

The teen’s father, Maurice DuBois, said reports of a possible sighting of his daughter Saturday were considered unreliable. He said his daughter is very structured — not the type of girl to disappear on her own.

Police have decided to wait to get better leads before resuming the search, KFMB reported.

UPDATE I: Investigator Explores New Lead … Was Amber DuBois Abducted?

A local investigator in the case of missing Escondido teenager Amber Dubois, said a woman, who looks a lot like the missing 14-year-old, told him that some men got out of a van February 2 near Escondido High School and approached her.

When the men asked her to get in the van, she said no, and they chased her, Bill Garcia said. The woman said she ran into an elementary school and escaped.

UPDATE II: Hundreds Search Rugged Terrain for Missing California Girl

UPDATE III: Its Been More than 2 Weeks Since Amber LeeAnne DuBois went Missing … Where is Amber?

Now police are re-evaluating an early sighting of Amber and following numerous tips and leads, including possible links to other recent cases. Investigators believe help from the public may be the best way to find answers.

“We’re looking for somebody out there that has information about something that took place, or maybe has a friend who knows something,” Escondido Police Lt. Craig Carter said. “If they don’t want to get involved, they can leave an anonymous tip.”

UPDATE V: New Tip in Missing Amber Dubois Case … Seen Walking with Boy

Meantime, Amber’s mother said police were looking into a new tip Saturday night. Amber was seen walking with a tall boy the day she went missing.

“They are thinking it was a high school student. They want to make sure. They want to talk to him and no one has come forward yet,” McGonigle said.

This weekend, her family organized another search for Amber. Volunteers have been going door-to-door, handing out fliers.
