This is horrible.

For the past 6 months, a 12yr old girl named Amber Harris has been missing from her home here in Omaha. She disappeared just before Thanksgiving. The week she disappeared was probably the coldest week we had all winter, and one of the snowiest.

There are several other women missing here in Omaha/Council Bluffs...during a search for one of the other missing women, a body was found in Hummel Park last thursday.

It took a week for DNA test results to come in, but they just confirmed that the body found was Amber Harris.

It's really quite sad. She was a beautiful little girl (and no, I didnt know her) Amber's story was covered nationwide, and the show Without A Trace even aired a blurb about her at the end of one of their episodes.

The news just broke, so I havent seen any news about how Amber died yet. If she was murdered, hopefully whoever did it gets a nice fair trial and a speedy execution. (edited to add: The Omaha PD is ruling Amber's death as a homicide)

And also today the body of a woman was found in the Missouri River. I wont be surprised if it turns out to be one of the other two missing women. (Tracy Tribble or Jessica O'Grady)

The fact that there are several women missing from the Omaha/Council Bluffs area is starting to scare me that there could be a serial killer in the area.
