A California woman has been missing for almost two weeks and police say her boyfriend is the primary suspect in her disappearance.
ABC News reports that 31-year-old Amanda Custer has not been seen since July 29, after she had an argument with her boyfriend, Robert Camou, 27, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
At a Thursday press conference, Amanda’s father, Rick Custer, pleaded with the public to help find his daughter. He said it wasn’t like her to leave without telling anyone.
“This is basically a plea to anybody out there, especially on Monday, the 29th of July, that was hiking or fishing, or mountain biking and might have seen anything out of the ordinary,” Rick Custer stated. “It might not have seemed important at that time, but it does now.”
“Somebody out there had to have seen something and now would be a good time to call it in. We just want to bring Amanda home.”
According to investigators, Amanda and Camou have been dating for several years. The relationship, however, has been less than ideal and described as “volatile.” Authorities added that “numerous domestic violence incidents” came from the relationship.
Shortly after Amanda vanished, Camou reportedly went to a downtown Los Angeles club and started rapping over a microphone, using lyrics such as, “I killed my b**** and buried her in the dirt.”
The Los Angeles Times reports that the bar was located off of 2nd and Hill streets.

Officers were dispatched to the couple’s home on the morning of July 29, off of the 600 block of Vaquero Road in Monrovia, after someone placed a domestic disturbance call. When police arrived, no one was home. Police later found blood in a bedroom in the home and signs of physical assault.
Witnesses reportedly told authorities they saw Cuomo loading Amanda’s “limp body” into his car, a grey Toyota Prius. Camou was subsequently arrested on July 30, on domestic violence charges, after police captured him sleeping in the backseat of his car.
Officers said they found blood and dirt inside Camou’s car. The blood is currently being analyzed, according to ABC.
Camou allegedly refused to give any information on Amanda’s whereabouts, but authorities said he’s the primary suspect in her disappearance.
“He is our prime suspect in the disappearance of Amanda Custer,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s homicide Lt. Scott Hoglund said. “We need the public’s assistance and locating Amanda. She’s still not been seen nor heard from by family members and this is very uncharacteristic of her behavior to not be heard from for over 10 days.”
Police said after Camou left his home on July 29, he traveled to Glendora, where he pulled into a Del Taco off of Foothill Boulevard a little after 8:30 a.m. and bought food. He then purchased cigarettes at a nearby Shell gas station on Foothill. The suspect then drove to Claremont and arrived at the Base Line Road and Padua Avenue area a little before 9 a.m.

Afterward, Camou ended up at a Chase Bank ATM in Azusa at around 2:40 p.m. His whereabouts are unknown during the gap in time that day. Later that night, he traveled to the downtown Los Angeles club.
“We’ve had search teams out handing out fliers, searching various areas,” Sheriff’s Lt. Scott Hoglund said during the Thursday news conference.
“But it is such a broad area that we desperately need the community’s assistance in trying to pinpoint a location of where this Prius may have gone off-road or anybody that has any information as to where Amanda Custer is at.”
Amanda is described as a white female who stands 5-feet-7-inches tall and weighs around 140 pounds. She has brown hair and green eyes.
Anyone with any information is urged to contact investigators at 323-890-5500, or anonymously at 800-222-8477.
