    Where are you , Amanda???

    Amanda left her home around 10:00 pm Thursday evening. Her car, a gold 2006 Pontiac G6, was found a few hours later. The car had a flat tire, the driver's side door was open, and the keys were still in the ignition. Amanda's belongings were in the car, but her cell phone was not.

    She was visiting a friend in Wheeler. He has since left town. He is a person of interest.

    This just doesn't sound good.

    I just saw this too. So incredibly sad. Such a beautiful young woman.

    There appears to be some conflicting information on where Amanda was located.

    Investigators say Bach's body was found Saturday afternoon within 3 miles of the Deans General Store in Wheeler where her 2006 gold Pontiac G6 was found.

    Praying the POI is found quickly.

    And many prayers for Amanda's family and friends with this terrible loss.
    Our hearts and prayers are with you.

    Person in Custody in Portage Woman's Death


    When Bach disappeared, she was heading to visit a man, believed to be the last person to see her alive. It's unclear if that man is the same person who's in the custody of the Porter County Sheriff's Department today.


    The Sheriff's Department scheduled a 4 p.m. news conference Sunday to release details.

    Suspect held in death of Amanda Bach, charges could come Monday


    http://www.suntimes.com/news/7739749...me-monday.html


    A Union Township man is being held in the Porter County Jail on suspicion of murder in the death of a 19-year-old Portage woman who was missing, police announced Sunday.

    Amanda Bach was with the man after leaving her family’s home Thursday night around 10 p.m., police said. Her car was found at about 3:30 a.m. Saturday at Dean’s General Store along Indiana 130 in Wheeler.

    “We’ll be seeking a murder charge Monday,” Detective Commander Jeff Biggs said during a news conference at the Porter County Sheriff’s Department, adding police will discuss the possibility of other charges with the prosecutor’s office.



    Dustin McCowan, 18, of Union Township is being held in the Porter County Jail on suspicion of murder. He was brought back from Bloomington, Ind., as part of the investigation into the disapearance and death of Amanda Bach, 19, of Portage, whose body was found Saturday aftenoon near railroad tracks just south of Wheeler

    Bach’s friends have described the suspect as the woman’s ex-boyfriend.

    As CBS 2′s Derrick Blakley reports, Dustin McCowan, 18, was charged with murder Monday afternoon. Porter County Sheriff’s police said he was being held without bond at the Porter County Jail, pending his initial court appearance on Tuesday.

    An autopsy was being performed Monday afternoon and Porter County prosecutors were waiting on a preliminary conclusion on what caused Bach’s death before proceeding with charges against the suspect.

    Witnesses told investigators they heard voices outside the home of the suspect, Dustin McCowan, of Union Township.

    According to prosecutors, neighbors said on early Friday morning they heard a female voice saying, “I can’t believe this is happening.” Then, a male voice saying repeatedly, “Amanda, get up!”

    McCowan’s father, who is a Crown Point police officer, refused to allow a search of his property, authorities said.
