Escondido, CA –
Amber Dubois has been missing for more than two weeks, not seen since she walked to school in Escondido on Friday, February 13th.Amber’s family thinks all evidence points toward Amber planning to arrive at school on Friday, February 13th. They say she was carrying Valentine’s Day gifts for her friends and a $200 check for a deposit on a lamb she planned to raise as part of her school’s Future Farmer’s program. The family also reveals Amber sent four text messages to her grandmother before leaving the house that morning for the roughly mile-long walk to school. Amber was last seen by two family friends only about 300 yards from the school’s gate. Police interviewed hundreds of students at Amber’s high school, according to published reports that also say the girl’s family members have been given polygraph tests. In a development Saturday, Escondido police asked for the public’s help in finding a young man who offered rides to girls as they walk home from school in Escondido’s Oak Hill neighborhood. That’s about three miles from Amber’s school. Police have not said if they see a possible connection between the two cases.
