Leads offer little in search for woman
Glynn County police are still searching for a missing 22-year-old Sterling woman who disappeared around 11 a.m. Tuesday while on a lunch break from work.

Police said Friday they've received little information that would help them narrow their search for Amber Whited, a mother of two who worked at Golden Isles Harley-Davidson on Venture Drive.

Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering said Whited's disappearance is suspicious and is being treated as though foul play might be involved.

Whited was driving a 1992 white Honda Accord that was found Wednesday around 3:30 p.m. in the 3100 block of Martin Luther King Boulevard with a flat tire.

Doering said witnesses in the area saw a white male, approximately 5 feet, 6 inches tall with dark hair wearing a white T-shirt, leaving the vehicle between 4 and 5 p.m. Tuesday. Police have not identified the man, he said.

The wide search area extends from her place of work just off Interstate 95, the site where her car was found in the city and her residence in Sterling.

"We don't have any particular place to search," Doering said.

Police have been focusing on the area around where her car was found in the city, but have gotten little in the way of leads.

"The important thing right now is that we are trying to find her," Doering said.

Investigators have been talking to people Whited knows, family members and businesses she frequented. They also have been checking regular routes she used, Doering said.

Police are also following up on leads provided by the public, he added.

Doering said he is hopeful she will be found soon.

"I am always optimistic," Doering said.
