The comments started off by readers was insulting and so I gave them some info in hopes that the public in Escondido may get themselves involved..

I will be leaving tomorrow morning for Catalina island for a week of scouting as I am a assistant scout master and apparently will not be able to communicate via my computer.
I will bring it along anyway just in case..

Vigil is set for missing girl, 14
Search continues for Amber Dubois
By J. Harry Jones

2:00 a.m. June 12, 2009
ESCONDIDO — It will be four months tomorrow since 14-year-old Amber Dubois went missing while walking to school in Escondido, and a search center established shortly after she disappeared is closing down.

Every weekend volunteers have been scouring nearby hills for any sign of the teen, without success. The number of volunteers has dwindled to a point that only about 20 people have been showing up to help.

Amber's mother, Carrie McGonigle, said that the center will close this weekend and that future search efforts will concentrate on distributing fliers in Riverside and Orange counties.

“Most people know about Amber in San Diego,” she said. “But nobody knows about her further north.”

The search center, at 755 N. Quince St. in Escondido, will be the site of a candlelight vigil from 1 to 4 p.m. tomorrow, culminating in the release of balloons at 4 p.m.

McGonigle said she still harbors hope.

“I still feel she's alive and I still feel she's nearby,” she said. “We just have to find where.”

Police say they have followed up on about 900 tips, including false sightings of the teen, without anything concrete being found.

An examination of Amber's Internet activity so far has shown only that she visited sites that any normal 14-year-old girl would, Escondido Police Lt. Bob Benton said. Some records still have not been obtained because the Web site operators are based outside the United States. The FBI has been helping with the Internet side of the investigation.

Amber's cell phone has not been used since the day after she disappeared, when someone in northern Escondido tried to access her voice mail for about 20 seconds but gave up after realizing the password had been changed. Her parents had it changed when she didn't come home so they could listen to any messages that might have been left for her.

It now appears that a burgundy pickup truck seen on surveillance videotape of a school bus maintenance yard near Escondido High School about the same time that Amber disappeared is not the same pickup spotted in another case.

San Diego police are searching for a similar pickup in connection with the molestation of two young girls at two Wal-Mart stores in April and May. But Benton said the trucks appear to be different.

Police still classify Amber as a missing juvenile, saying there isn't enough information to say definitively whether she was abducted or ran away.

Nationally known missing children's advocate Marc Klaas will attend the vigil, McGonigle said.

Anyone with information about Amber's whereabouts is asked to call (760) 743-TIPS (8477).

Amber's family has offered a $50,000 reward for information leading to her return, and a $10,000 reward for information leading to arrests.

It only stands to reason that the guy seen walking with Amber Leeann Dubois was associated with the Red/Maroon Pick up..
He must have known her enough to talk with her, or he could have been a Con Artist who knows how to make an approach and when she came close to the red truck her forced her inside.. Then the driver finds a spot to get her under control..

This could be gang related if Amber pissed off somebody in the teen world..

I doubt Amber Leeann Dubois Ran Away from home. I do believe if she had been abused she would have ran to her Aunt or her Grandma or her DAD first before that would happen.
I know I am going out on a limb to make that claim but it is my gut feeling which is usually correct.
Amber was attacked for one reason or another..

I am starting to think GANG related.. That Phone is not the pattern of the Kidnappers from San Bernadino and Redondo Beach, but I can see some immature gang members doing that for sure.

Edward, I do not think she was abused and ran away either. She visited her Dad on a regular basis and had a good support group in her family IMHO.

This part of your comment >"I am starting to think GANG related.. That Phone is not the pattern of the Kidnappers from San Bernadino and Redondo Beach, but I can see some immature gang members doing that for sure." I do not understand. That phone, what pattern?
As we all know, San Diego (Escondido) is very close to the Mexican border and many work here on a daily basis. We are also close to San Bernadino and areas of gang activity. I think many/most communities in SoCal have gang activity to a degree. It is a possibility, IMHO

Keep Amber in your thoughts and prayers.

I wish I was healthier, and I would too.

Me three.

I can't sleep so I am using the time this morning to reflect and pray. Amber and her family are both in my prayers this morning. May she come home safe and soon to the family that loves and misses her.

Here are the Web Sleuths images courtesy of member, Cloudajo



These pics are great. the set of pics which shows the arrows, are we sure this is the right area of the maintance yard the truck is seen parking? I say this because on google maps I don't see a fence there and it is not the area the buses are parked. could the truck be  on the other side of the building?

Balloons carry hopes of missing girl's family

DETAILS

Amber Dubois

Missing since Feb. 13

Online: bringamberhome.com

Background: See an archive of stories on the case at uniontrib. com/more/amber

ESCONDIDO — Hundreds of blue balloons soared into the eastern sky above Escondido yesterday afternoon, carried by the wind.

Each bore a message about Amber Dubois, and maybe, her father said, one might be found by someone who knows something – anything – about what happened to the 14-year-old.

It was a somber, emotional gathering at the Amber Dubois Search Center yesterday afternoon. It marked the four-month anniversary of when the teenager went missing while walking to Escondido High School, and the donated building on Quince Street where searches have been coordinated is closing down this weekend.

“Sadly, this is the last gathering at this location, but it won't be the last thing we do because we will all keep on working until we bring Amber home,” said the girl's grandmother, Sheila Welch. “We can only look to the day when we can have a celebration when Amber comes home.”

Since shortly after the teen's disappearance, volunteer searchers have been scouring the countryside and hills within a roughly eight-mile radius of where Amber was last seen. They have found nothing.

“The good news, if there is good news, is that three months ago we came here to help the family organize a search effort to find a body,” said nationally known lost-child advocate Marc Klaas. “They have not found that body. That's exceptional news. That's very good news. Amber is out there, and we think Amber is alive.”

Klaas said a switch in strategy is about to take place: “We're not looking for a body. We're looking for a little girl.”

Amber's mother, Carrie McGonigle, spoke only briefly yesterday, tearing up while introducing Klaas. She said last week that she and others will concentrate on distributing fliers in Riverside, Orange and Los Angeles counties.

“Most people know about Amber in San Diego,” McGonigle said. “But nobody knows about her further north.”

Police say they have followed up on about 900 tips, including false sightings of the teen, without finding anything concrete.

Authorities classify Amber as a missing juvenile, saying there isn't enough information to say definitively whether she was abducted or ran away.

From the very beginning, her family has been convinced that she was kidnapped. Amber's father, Maurice Dubois, said he will never quit looking.

“It's unfortunate I'm in front of you again talking,” Dubois said. “Any of you who have been here from Day One know what our family is going through. It's been difficult, frustrating, sad.”

Although donated, the search center carries utilities and other expenses that would be better spent on other efforts, the family says.

“This is not going to be over until Amber is home,” Dubois said. “We're not stopping. People think that by closing this center, we're giving up. But we're not – not by any means. We won't give up until Amber is home.”

Dubois said some days have been worse than others.

“Easter was a very tough day for many of us,” he said. “Mother's Day was very tough on Carrie and me. Just around the corner is Father's Day. I'm not ready for it ... not without my daughter here.”

Klaas said it's imperative that Amber's case continue to be publicized.

“I think it's well-known that if the family stops searching, this case will go into the cold-case file very quickly,” he said. “Therefore, we have to create strategies to keep it moving forward, to keep it in the public eye ... so that Amber can ultimately be recovered. It really is the only goal that we have right now.”

One of those ways of keeping the story alive was yesterday's “raise awareness” balloon release. Dubois said that perhaps one of the balloons will end up in the hands of someone who knows something.

“We're leaving it up to Mother Nature,” he said.
