    Her boyfriend Mason Campbell said they've been getting some leads, but were told not to go public with any until the police can investigate.

    He said friends and family will continue to search as long as it takes.

    "We can't stop until she's found. If she's not found in a year, we're looking for a year," he said.

    He was personally following up on leads and trying to recruit help.

    "At this point it's all on me to find out where my girlfriend is," he said. "I've got to get her home."

    Police and family say it is completely uncharacteristic for her to go anywhere without telling anyone.
    A Facebook profile called "New Glasgow Police Services" is giving information about the search but MacDonald said it is not an official police page and that the department will be investigating who is responsible for the page after the investigation.

    The profile now has a note up saying: "this is not a police officer or a dispatcher etc when i made this page i didnt expect all the likes wich i do appreciate i really do i thank for that but i had thoughts of closeing it but when amber went missing i thought it would be a good idea to leave it up and help each other out to find her thats why its up and the updates i get are the ones i know or are the ones i see so lets keep searching and bring her home."

    The site claims that Kirwan was spotted at the Needs in New Glasgow with a man yesterday, but MacDonald said there has been nothing confirmed although police are investigating rumours. He said they are going to many businesses to see if they have any video of the woman.

    New details are coming out:

    Amber's boyfriend (MC) said Kirwan called him from Dooly’s and asked him to pick her up. They agreed to meet at Big Al’s.

    When he got there though, she wasn’t there, so he tried calling the number she had called from but no one saw here there.

    He returned to Big Al’s but she was nowhere to be seen.

    He said Kirwan took a cab into Dooly’s and he had planned to join her, but was unable to.

    MAP showing:

    ( A ) Dooly's Billiard Room (Amber left at 1:30 am)

    ( B ) Big Al's Convenience store (where she had agreed to meet her boyfriend)

    Distance: 200 m, 1 minute driving, 2 minutes walking

    My question is: Why didn't they agree for the boyfriend to pick her up at Dooly's instead?

    Treed area and wooded area bother me

    So weird that someone would disappear over such a short distance.

    The river, the bridge, and the treed area bother me a little although I'm sure they've all been searched.

    My feeling is that she was watched by someone within Dooly's and followed.

    Having lived in this area of NS, I don't think him asking her to meet him at Big Al's raises questions right away for me, of course it all depends on the demeanor of him,etc.etc.

    Small town NS, if it's the busy/big place to go at night, it might be a busy street, hard to find a spot, much easier to just meet around the corner where he can park and wait for her,etc. Having lived in the same area(and many more like it in small town Canada) I can say that no one I know would think twice of walking that little(or MUCH farther) in a town like that, as sad as it is.

    If it were me, I would expect that she'd appear very shortly as I would be hoping that it was all just a misunderstanding.

    I did a google street view, but had trouble finding Big Al's. By the address that shows up, it appears that it is only a couple of blocks from Doolys. I believe it is a convenience store. Was she planning on heading over there for some cigarettes? Why else wouldn't she ask her boyfriend to pick her up right at Doolys? Was someone 'bothering' her?

    ETA: sorry Ellabella. I was busy reading articles, looking at maps and writing. I didn't see your pos before I posted.

    Snoopster: I had the same problem with street view.. I wonder if Big Als is a recent addition in an old space? I also thought the searching for comments were weird.

    whoops, it appears that she has been missing for almost 48 hours, however my comment still stands. I think it is odd that someone appears to believe it might be a long search!
