    Curacao - Amanda Waller, 28, of TX, last seen snorkeling, 25 June 2015

    http://abc13.com/news/husband-of-kat...ks-out/825121/

    "To set the facts straight, she was snorkeling with a group of friends," Allan Waller tells Eyewitness News. "And at some point, the three became separated. And when I surfaced from the dive I was doing with my best friend, they already had begun a search for her."

    He says the Coast Guard quickly joined the search, and more than 50 volunteer divers looked for her well into the weekend. But no Amanda.

    Something real wrong with this case. Read about it and saw some interviews. Something more to it.

    I don't know, I'll admit I've been wrong before. It sounds like a tragic accident. If the husband was elsewhere it would be hard to pull off. They sounded like a happy couple who was planning a family.

    Oh thank goodness someone posted about this! I have been following this story and checking WS to see if anyone had posted it yet. I tried to do it myself yesterday (first time ever attempting to do that) and it wouldn't let me post - kept saying "missing prefix"??

    Anyway, this whole thing is very hinky. My first thought was human trafficking because this area (Curacao) I have heard of before in similar incidents (Amy Bradley comes to mind). The family set up a ******** to fund a search for her but now an update on it seems to indicate that they believe she's deceased and the money will instead be spent on her funeral/memorial as well as a donation to some of the searchers.

    I have questions about all of this. Like why are they so quick to declare her dead when no body has been found? From what u understand this is not deep water and it's pretty clear water. How could someone completely vanish? My hinky meter is off the charts on this one. She is a beautiful lady and I pray she's found safe!

    He is just acting so matter of fact in interviews, saying they have to move forward and bring closure to the family. That he thinks she is dead and it has only been a few days. They have only been together for 3 years, just something so off here. I am hoping the police are looking at this case closer.

    sounds strange but it's probably a tragic accident.

    Yes QueenMictlan and I also thought it was strange that he brought up the fact that his wife had discussed wanting him to move on and find love again. Just an odd statement to make at this point in time, IMO. They seem like a lovely couple and I don't want to think something is amiss there but I admit I did find some of his statements and demeanor to be...unexpected at a time like this.

    His statements ARE odd, but maybe he's just kind of an odd guy? I know people who make odd statements all the time - maybe he's one of them? He seems very . . . analytical and is speaking of this disappearance as if it were years ago, not days. The way he talks about his FIL saying "you've gone above and beyond in the search" - IMHO, in a few days, it's not POSSIBLE to go "above and beyond". He's talking as if he's been searching for her tirelessly for months.

    I do have to say, I very very near drowned snorkeling and I'm a very strong swimmer, and bouyant. I was in the Caymen Islands and although the water looked calm and peaceful, I was carried out to sea in a cross-current. I suspect that's what happened to her.

    But I'd also like to know if all these things are true:

    1. She was snorkeling with actual friends, who knew who she was and agree that she said she was going to swim back to the beach to be with her pregnant friend while they still snorkeled
    2. The pregnant friend was waiting on the beach for her to arrive and join her
    3. Her husband really was completly separated from the group that was snorkeling, and he was witnessed by his friend to be diving the entire time, away from where she was.

    Very good observations and questions JeannaT! I hope we get a little more information and if she is in fact deceased, I truly hope they find her remains.

    Thank you LadyL! When I clicked the drop down, nothing was there. I was on my phone so maybe that's why. I'll try it from the laptop next time!

    This case just does not sit well with me at all.

    An American woman vacationing on the island of Curacao has been missing for four days, after disappearing without a trace during a snorkeling excursion.

    Amanda Waller, 28, was last seen Thursday afternoon, swimming back to shore after about half an hour of snorkeling off Cas Abou Beach.

    By the time her husband Allan returned to the beach 20 minutes later, Amanda was nowhere to be seen.

    It's not known whether Amanda ever made it back to shore.

    Amanda and her husband were on the trip to Curacao - an island off the coast of Venezuela
