Sister of missing mother asking for public’s help

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The family of a missing woman is asking the public for help to bring a mother of three home safely.

Amber Owens, 23, was last seen October 21st. Her twin sister, Alicia, said she was the last one to see her.

“I woke up at 4:30 on Wednesday in the morning, aching everywhere,” said Alicia Owens. “I just knew something was wrong.”

Alicia said her and Amber went to a party on Genessee Avenue the night of her disappearance.

“I asked her if she wanted me to take her home,” said Owens. “She told me no. I hugged her, gave her twenty dollars, struck her hair, and told her to call me when she was on her way home.”

Amber would call her sister less than an hour later while driving home.

The next morning, Amber did not show up for her job at Waffle House.

Her grandfather, George Roebuck, filed a missing person’s report with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. Roebuck would then find his granddaughter’s abandoned vehicle Monday.

“We combed the area unable to locate any type of witnesses,” said Maj. Daryl Wilson with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. “We were unable to see Amber or anybody else at the vehicle.”

The vehicle has been impounded and will be searched for evidence Wednesday.

The sheriff’s office said they are seeking answers as to what happened.

“To say that there is foul play or evidence of foul play, we don’t have that information right now,” said Wilson. “We’re just hoping that Amber will show up; that she took a long vacation and didn’t tell anyone.”

The family is also asking for help in this case.

They are hoping Amber will return home safe to take care of her three children. She has a 6-year-old daughter and two sons ages 3 and 2.

“They think mommy is coming home,” said Owens. “They thought mommy was going to take them trick-or-treating. Mommy just didn’t show up.”

Anyone with information on Amber’s whereabouts is asked to call the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
