  • Details of Disappearance
    Sher was last seen on October 18, 2002 at approximately 12:00 pm in the vicinity of Alwife Station in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

    There have been rumors that Amy was the victim of domestic abuse at the hands of her husband, but those claims have not been substantiated. The husband had also reportedly made threats against Amy's family in the past, causing them to take out a restraining order against him. The husband had also caused an estrangement between Amy and her family.

    At her workplace, supervisors documented several years of what they called significant and severe emotional and physical abuse. Amy never said who was responsible and rejected numerous offers of help.

    In October 2002, a private detective tried to reunite Amy with her family. She refused. The following week, Amy was out sick. By week?s end, her husband emailed Amy?s boss a resignation letter. Amy never called in, and never picked up her paychecks. Police did not begin a investigation into Amy's disappearance until April 2004, eighteen months after her last known contact.
