Missing Woman Last Seen Downtown
“The family and friends are very concerned for Amy’s safety,” said Lt. Paul Vernon, who is in charge of investigations downtown. “According to her girlfriends, they last saw her around 11:40 p.m. in the bar having a drink with a 20- to 25-year-old White man.”
A friend was holding Amy’s cell phone, so there is no way to contact her directly. Police and family have contacted many of the persons listed in the phone’s address book but have had no success finding her. Amy is a student at Cal State Long Beach who was working on final projects this week.
“I just want my daughter here with me now,” said her mother Viannette Serrano. Amy has family who live in Lancaster and Downey, California.
5 feet tall, 100 pounds
Black hair, brown eyes
