Teen Amber Leann Hess Missing From Queen Creek, AZ Foul Play Suspected
Investigators in Pinal County, Arizona are asking for the public's help to find an abducted or endangered teenager. Authorities say that Amber Leann Hess, 17, was last seen late Friday afternoon. She is a white female, with brown hair and eyes, about 5 feet 2 inches, and weighing 145 pounds, Pinal County Sheriff's officials said. According to a report from KTAR investigators suspect foul play.
Officials said Amber's parents were away for the weekend in Rocky Point Mexico and the teen had been at their Queen Creek-area home alone. Deputies said they found blood in the home and a gun missing. The report also notes that Amber's car was also gone. Her car is described as a white 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer with a Playboy bunny decal on the back window and Arizona license plate 329-RJN.
Family members said Amber has never disappeared before and that it's out of character for her to lose contact with her parents. Her grandfather said Amber does not have a boyfriend and her family has no idea where she could be. Hess has both of her ears pierced twice and a belly button piercing, with either a diamond or Playboy bunny charm.
Hess' mother, Candy, made a tearful plea to the person who may have her daughter. "Let us know she's alive. Call us. Leave a message on her cell phone. I don't care, just do something, so I know that she's OK," she said.
