One evening in 1997 a ten-year-old girl went to ride her bike home from her friend’s house.

Amber Renee Barker went missing on December 18th, 1997. She never made it home, and she has not been seen since.

Amber had ridden her bike to her nearby friend’s house, her mother spoke to her on the phone while she was at the friend’s house, telling her to come home. She was last seen riding her bike down the road at approximately 6pm.

Eventually three people would be majorly questioned in Amber’s disappearance: her older sister’s boyfriend, her brother-in-law, and an inmate in the Oklahoma County Jail.

Amber’s bike was found the day after she went missing, one mile from her home. Shoes, one sock, a ring and a sweater were also found. One shoe was found a block away from the other. Partial DNA of a male was found on the sweater, and police have sought samples from two of the above men that were questioned. Amber’s brother in law however, cannot give a sample any longer, as he killed himself just days after he was questioned about her disappearance.

At the time she went missing Amber was 4’11 to 5’0 and 80 pounds. She had brown hair and eyes, and her ears are pierced.
