Capt. David Alexander of the Aragon Police Department said Amber Graham, 14, was last seen when her mother told her good night around 11:20 p.m. Feb. 20. Her mother reported her missing just a few hours later at 2:54 a.m. Feb. 21.
A relative said a kitchen window was found open.
At first, police classified the teen as a runaway but a relative said Amber had a good relationship with her mother, was a good student, and seemed really happy. She and her mother were talking about what they would be wearing to church the night of her disappearance.
Amber is 4-foot-8-inches tall, weighs around 100 pounds, has blonde hair and blue eyes. She was last seen in bedclothes, but it’s unknown what she is currently wearing.
Alexander said it was hard to get an immediate jump on finding Amber because she was classified as a runaway.
“That’s our problem. She doesn’t meet the criteria of an Amber Alert, but we have the federal marshals assisting us as well as Rockmart Police, Polk County police, Floyd County, and Bartow County,” he said.
The family is growing more concerned with each passing day, a relative said. They believe someone is with her or has her because of her age and because she had no money at the time of her disappearance.
Family and friends have been canvassing neighborhoods and local towns all weekend with posters. They hope someone will have a lead that will bring Amber home.
