Missing From Valley City, North Dakota Since July 4, 2012
Amber Marcia Glatt, age 22, was reported missing by her boyfriend on July 4, 2012. She is white, stands 5’4” tall, weighs 96 pounds, has brown eyes and medium-length brown hair.
Amber suffers from recurring amnesia and her episodes can last four to six weeks. She may be driving a silver Mitsubishi Lancer with Virginia license plates XFK 1538 and the rear, driver-side window broken out.
The mother of a missing 22-year-old here who has suffered episodes of amnesia believes a note found by police indicating she lost her memory was not written by her daughter.
Amy Glatt, the mother, said Friday that she was the last person to have contact with Amber Marcia Glatt before her boyfriend, Andy Mushet, 20, reported her missing on Wednesday to the Valley City Police Department.
Mushet told police that when he returned to the home he shares with Amber at about midnight, he found a note saying she had amnesia with her name signed at the bottom, her mother told The Forum on Friday.
“The whole note was strange. I know my daughter’s handwriting, and it is messy and full of misspelled words,” she said. “You could read everything in the note, it had the proper punctuation and spellings. I think if my daughter had written it, it would have taken her two to three hours.”
After texting her about camping equipment around 2 p.m., Amy Glatt said her daughter told her she was on her way to her job at a snow-cone shop, but authorities say she never made it.
Amber Glatt has suffered from focal retrograde amnesia for two years, her mother said. Her amnesia is a result of a traumatic brain injury she suffered July 8, 2010, an incident her daughter didn’t recall occurring. Amy Glatt said all they knew was something hit her in the right front part of her head hard enough to penetrate the skull and cause swelling.
Anyone with information regarding Amber’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Valley City Police Department at (701) 845-3110.
