Friends of 22-year-old Amber Whited can't find one reason why anyone would want to hurt her.

"She was more of a quiet, shy person," said Amber's friend Montana Avery. "She wouldn't have left with a stranger."

She was last seen Tuesday at work, at the Golden Isles Harley-Davidson in Brunswick.

Her boss tells Action News she left for lunch around 11 a.m,. got in her car alone and never returned.

Co-workers tell us she was diligent, always on time and loved what she did.

"She never even used her cell phone at work. The only time she would use her cell phone is when she would go outside to call her kids on lunch break or something to make sure they're doing OK," said co-worker Brooke Morris.

When she didn't make it home that night to her two daughters, the family knew something was wrong.

Amber's ex-boyfriend tells Action News they started searching immediately, but when her car was found abandoned in a dangerous area downtown, that's when they feared the worst.

"The way that the car looked, it looked like it had scrapes on the side and it had mud on the car," said Brent Boatright.

Bruce Dunson lives across the street from where her car was dumped and says he saw a white male inside.

"He was like arguing with somebody on the phone and he got out the car, he was pacing from the front to the back of the car. Then he dropped the keys and walked off," said Dunson.

Police have not yet identified the man seen dropping off the car.
