They gathered in downtown Springfield to share stories, memories and remind people that Amanda is still out there somewhere.

The family has a renewed sense of hope after word that the Cue Center for Missing Persons is compiling information for a search in the near future.

Members of the group were at the vigil conducting interviews.

“She left my house July 4th and went home to her husband’s house on Avondale and she hasn’t been seen since,” said Alyia Lindsey, Amanda’s sister. “I’m just hoping with this vigil, it’ll help put her back out there to let people know she’s still missing. It’s like a big piece of our heart is missing. We’re missing an important person in our family.”

If you have any information on where Amanda might be, call the Springfield Police Department.

It has an anonymous tip line, so you do not have to give your name or phone number.

The tip line number is 937-324-7685.
