“The whole thing is really concerning,” Lt. Jake Reed of the Berea Police Department said. “She’s a teenage girl, she’s left with someone that she doesn’t really know, and her parents are concerned about her. Teenagers shouldn’t speak to people they don’t know. They shouldn’t give out personal information or try to meet up with people they meet on any social media platform.”
Although she likely left on her free will, police are treating the incident as a missing persons case due to Amber’s age. The incident does not qualify for an AMBER Alert, according to police.
Amber was last seen getting into a white Chevrolet Malibu. Anyone with any information should contact 911.
