Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Amanda and her then-5-year-old brother, Matthew, were playing at a friend's house eight doors from their residence when she decided to visit another friend, who lived about four doors down. She took off alone between 4:00 and 4:30 p.m. but never reached her destination. When Nikki failed to return home with Matthew by the appointed time, a search began. A 3 day door-to-door, helicopter and canine search was done. Canines tracked her scent to a local McDonalds and from there down Interstate 80 West, which is approximately a 90 second drive from Amanda's home. Her pink and purple bicycle was spotted within a few blocks of her house.
