Secret Diary of a Missing Girl
When family members can’t reach Amber Wilde on September 23, 1998, they immediately become alarmed. The 19-year-old University of Wisconsin Green Bay junior is 4 ½ months pregnant and had been involved in a minor traffic accident the day before when she hit her head on the windshield. She has missed her morning classes and an afternoon doctor’s appointment, and is not answering her phone — very out of character for the highly-motivated, disciplined young woman who is planning to attend medical school and become a pediatrician. There is no sign of a struggle in her off-campus apartment, but Amber, her car, purse, and cellphone are missing. Under Amber’s mattress, police find Amber’s secret diary, revealing troubling details about her relationship with the father of her unborn child. They believe the diary is a key to solving her disappearance.
