PORT WASHINGTON - Renewed hope in a missing woman mystery -- 15 years after Amber Wilde vanished without a trace.
Amber's family has never given up trying to find her. For 15 years, they've begged for information, anything that could shed some light on what happened to her that day. Now, police believe new evidence could be the key. But they need people who've stayed quiet all this time to come forward.
Amber Wilde's family gathered at the bluffs in Port Washington. It was one of the 19-year-old's favorite places to find peace, something Amber's family hasn't had in the 15 years since she disappeared.
"I guess the hardest part is knowing that someone we love so much is gone, we don't have the answers to know why," says Nicole Ehnert, Wilde's cousin.
A pregnant Amber disappeared shortly after she got into a minor car accident in Green Bay back in 1998. She called her father and another person, then was never heard from again.
But now, detectives hope new DNA testing developed since Amber's disappearance will give them the clues they need to crack the case.
"I can pretty confidently say we have a lot of evidence in this case," says Detective Lee Kingston. "We have a lot of theories but we're looking for a little help."
Authories and Amber's family believe someone out there knows something and they're begging them to step forward.
"Come with that last little clue that we need, that the police need," says Wilde's grandmother, Jane Wilde.
A 15 year fight for answers - finally starting to go their way.
"It might seem like a celebration but you can't stop living," Jane says. You know, Amber wouldn't want that."
While there's a lot of hope this evidence will come back with some answers, it doesn't mean this case is closed. If you have any infomration, no matter how insignificant you think it might be, you are enouraged to call police.
